Ride Sharing Post

If you're looking for someone to share a ride to or from the con with, here's the place! 

You can comment with requests like "I'm driving from New York on Thursday morning in a van with three people, and we're looking for a fourth to split gas and tolls," or "I'm getting into Dulles Airport on Thursday afternoon and hoping someone would give me a lift to the hotel."

For hotel room sharing, please use the Room Sharing Post.

I live between Baltimore and DC and am happy to carpool or pick people up from Baltimore, points south, BWI or train stations in the area. Probably Thursday evening and late Sunday afternoon.

I am leaving Sunday morning from Union Station. If I pay for round trip gas is there any chance I could get a ride? My train leaves at 12:15 but I am happy to get to the station early so you don't miss any of the Sunday fun.

Did you need the ride all the way into Union Station? That would be pretty tight in the morning - I have panels pretty much all morning, including one I'm modding and will be doing last-minute prep for; we'd have to leave around 8 AM and to be very honest I'm not sure I'll be capable of hours that early by Sunday morning.

There is a Metro station (Pentagon City) very near the hotel that will take you on the local subway right to Union Station, though - if you needed a quick lift there sometime Sunday morning, I could probably manage that, although IIRC the hotel also has a shuttle.

I will try something else. I will be traveling with a walker. Maybe I will just take a taxi. I don't want you to miss your panels.

I'm coming by train to DC and trying to hitch a ride to Arlington. Willing to come on Friday night, though I had planned to arrive early on Saturday and leave Sunday afternoon/evening. (Gas money included!)

Driving from Michigan!

So I've decided to drive to the con from Michigan this year, and I'll have space in my vehicle for multiple passengers if needed! If anyone lives roughly along the Flint/Ann Arbor/Detroit/Toledo/(Columbus or Cleveland)/Pittsburgh/Morgantown route and wants to hitch a ride, I'll be driving to the con on Thursday morning/afternoon and heading back on Monday. :)

Minor correction; I will now be driving down on Wednesday!

Anyone driving down from NYC?

I don't have a car but if anyone is driving down from NYC area I'd be happy to chip in for a ride! =)
