2008 Convention Car Pooling Forum

Lets try to make getting to convention a little more economical for everyone this year. Lets face it, gas prices are high and the economy sucks. We could all stand to save some money on gas. Even if it's just to spend more on gear and books at convention!!
The NSS convention staff is hoping you will use this forum to find car pooling options. You may think it will be hard to find someone who will want to travel on your schedule, maybe you can ride one way with one group and make the return trip with another.

If you have space in your vehicle or are looking to catch a ride with someone, please post some info. Maybe the rough starting location and your dates of travel.

If we work together on this not only can we all save a little gas money, but we can lower the carbon budget for this convention. Now that benefits the whole world.

Anybody passing through the Knoxville or Chattanooga area on Monday and returning sometime on Saturday? I can drive but prefer to ride. One-way or both is fine.

Email or PM if interested.

I'd like to road trip down to the convention, but it is dependent on filling my Jeep. I live in Ann Arbor, MI, and there is one other person who would like to ride down. I can easily and comfortably fit five people and gear in my vehicle so there is room for three more. unfortunately, I can't get the whole week off of work so I wold be Driving down on Wednesday and driving back sometime on Sunday. Any takers? The plan wold be to cave after convention as well.
Ce qui importe, ce n'est pas d'arriver, mais d'aller vers.
