I'm seriously thinking of going after watching this refent Facebook in Polish trip or image show from this Polish guy and his wife who organize trips. this has to be the most legendary ride or trip of a lifetime. they have this YouTube channel here:

they organize trips basically for Polish people. but imagine the experience the countries and civilizations you'll see even while overcoming the challenge of basically living in a jail cell for three weeks or whatever. such a beautiful experience.

The trip may be fun. Revealing your nationality may be less so. I wouldn't count on a warm welcome from any Russian who knows how the US treats Russia or how Poles dislike them.

A lot to see out of the window, however most of the time is just waiting for something to happen. It would still be worth it though.

It's probably better if you can break the journey in a few places. Do you like long train journeys? Last year I travelled from northern Belgium to Warsaw in a (long) day changing at Eindhoven, Munster and Berlin. More peaceful than flying and stress free.

You can't afford it strelecz so stop dreaming. maybe the końsk to lodz on tanie linie kolojowe second class is more within your budget?

I don't see a problem. Quoting:

Moscow-Vladivostok is an even greater bargain, 7 or 8 nights and 9,000km from as little as 14,500 rubles, about $210 or £170 with a bed in a shared 4-berth sleeper.

Im sure I can afford the spot next to the constantly opening and closing bathroom door. The one no one wants Im sure it has to be super cheap.

Where did you get that price from? that would be one of the local trains not the tourist one.

Prices are all over the internet. To me, risks aside, the real fun would be to get off along the way and talk to the people. English-speaking guides would be the last on my list.

From about 150 Euro depending on time of year and level of comfort. That price is from Moscow to Vladivostok.

Don't forget to add plane ticket for a return trip (but in a non-epidemic times there may be more reasonable direct flights to Seoul for connection to some route to US or Europe). Also, add some to be spent in a train restaurant.

Yes. Both ways would be a long journey, however, as you know, internal flights within Russia are cheap.
