Carpool, Lodging Plans, Etc.: The Thread!

If folks are looking to make new friends by carpooling, sharing parking, etc., here's a good place to do it! Here's how this works:

- If you're interested in taking on passengers, create a post in this thread. It'll help if we follow similar formats, so that potential passengers can browse quickly and easily. Here's my example:

Name: Brian and Jessica
Traveling From: Roanoke Rapids, NC (NE area of NC, along I-95)
Date(s) at Expo: Sept. 14, 15, and 16
Staying at: Super 8, 2.4 miles from the convention center
Looking to: Carpool to/from Motel or around Expo Area
# of Passengers/Guests: max of 4 (minivan)
Needs: Partial gas/parking money, to be decided before the event. Non-smokers preferred. We are light/moderate drinkers -- no one under 21.

- Be sure to keep your listing up to date, so that folks know if/when it's full.

- Potential passengers: Contact the posters via PM, and take it from there!

Mind picking me up in wilmington? Lol, jk.

Hmmmm, I would offer to car pool anyone from Wilmington, but we are only going for one day, and the car might be full already. Let you guys know later.

Name: Allie and Andrew
Traveling From: Northern Virginia Area (DC/Metro)
Date(s) at Expo: Sept. 13-16 - We are departing VA on Thursday evening-ish (after work hours). Will be leaving on the 16th (time is debatable)
Staying at: Durham Marriott City Center
Looking to: Carpool to/from the Expo. If you aren't in our hotel, we will gladly drop off/pick up at yours (as long as it isn't a million miles away).
# of Passengers/Guests: Max 3. Two can fitcomfortably, as we will probably be driving a Challenger (read: tight fit in the back seat). If you don't mind snuggling with strangers, we aren't opposed to three.
Needs: Maybe some gas money?? If so, not much at all. Non-smokers preferred (unless you can wait till pee breaks). Expect many nerdy conversations and back seat driving by me.

Shoot me a PM if interested.

If anyone is going from Kentucky, I would love to go. I live in Carolina, but go to school a couple states away :P

# of Passengers/Guests: Up to 3, assuming not too much luggage

(edited my previous post. Due to the size of our costumes, we prob'ly won't be able to bring folks to or from the event itself -- but we're still glad to help transport folks around Durham and to/from the motel!)
