Ride Share - Offering and looking

I didn't see a ride share thread up anywhere so i thought I'd make one up to ease in my searching... and possibly others who are still looking for cheap transport and are not on the train list.


I am coming from Ottawa, Ontario looking for others that might need a ride.
I can stop in Kingston / Montreal or other small cites along the way down to Boston.
we'll make a few stops on the way down and I plan on leaving the 10th
and be heading back North on the 13th on/at an agreed time...
I don't mind if its late... that's what they make red bull for. <img class=" title=":wink:" class="bbcode_smiley" />

edit:
ahh I am sorry
I am a total idiot I forgot to change this ... the spot in my vehicle was filled as imperfect said. Soo sorry!!!

    I'll be 'pooling with Mint, BTW. She's the best of people, and super rad and nerdy, even though she is new to community.

    That said, there's a dot on Ottawa in the Google Maps thread that is for someone who is looking for a ride - but they never put their forum username on it! Who are you, step forward! We have space in a car for you.

    Have a Ride to offer.
    Driving by myself from Asheville, NC along the following route, more or less.
    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=FTE6HwIdYVMU-ykJbw88qYxZiDFdOjQGwTHvlA%3BFZ9WhgIdw7bD-ykbMT0NLWXjiTGg6GIBJL98eA&q=Asheville,+NC+to+Boston,+MA&aq=0&sll=35.619379,-82.562095&sspn=0.015577,0.017016&ie=UTF8&ll=37.570705,-79.694824&spn=7.773151,8.712158&z=7&saddr=Asheville,+NC&daddr=Boston,+MA
    If you live within 20 miles of this route, I can offer 2, (MAYBE 3 lightly packed) people a ride. Only asking you split the gas bill.

    Contact Nathan via private message. I log on to the site frequently through out the day.

    Edit: I am waiting for a call from a rental agency. Depending on the price they quote me, I will be flying. My offer will close if no one responds within the next 24 hours.

    Ah-whoops.

    Really sorry, but we filled that spot and changed our origin city (Oakville now instead) and TOTALLY FORGOT to come in here and update it. I've warned Mint about it and she'll come in and change it when she can.

    Again, sorry about that.

    Recent events have necessitated that I drive my car up to Boston for PAX (need a new MA inspection sticker) instead of taking the train like I had planned so I've got an empty car which could have people in it!

    Anyone from Washington DC up to Boston-or potentially in between-who needs a lift, drop me a line, I leave Thursday Morning, the earlier the better, and I return Sunday Night. Contact me by email at Chirishman@gmail.com or by AIM at Chirisman6

    A bit about myself: I'm a 22 year old working as a paralegal, I've done this drive a few times before, I drive a Honda Accord which I've just had serviced (not a clunker that's to going break down and strand us half way). I'm really easy going and willing to talk about pretty much anything on the drive although for one of this length I do have a few requests of any passenger.


    My few, reasonable requests:
    • You must able to at least tolerate low or reasonable volume classic rock or be willing to compromise on a music choice.
    • Bathing prior to the drive is a must and deodorant or antiperspirant is greatly appreciated.
    • I'd like to make good time so if you bring your own snacks that would be great.
    • If you throw things out of the windows of my car at other cars you will be left on the side of the road.

    Yes the last one is oddly specific. Yes it has happened to me and yes I was subsequently contacted by the police after the other driver took down my license plate. The offender has never again been allowed into my car.

    tl;dr: Don't be a dick and we'll have a great time.

    We are only heading down Friday morning from MONTREAL.

    We will be making a stop in BURLINGTON, VT ( So we could feasibly pick-up from there ) to stop into a couple of stores. So that has to be acceptable. Probably won't be at PAX until after lunch. If all that is okay, you're welcome to ride with us.

    OFFERING

    Leaving NYC/Westchester area around Thursday midnight - early Friday morning.
    Returning Sunday afternoon. Could possibly venture around Boston if anyone wanted to.... I actually dont mind staying another night if you wanted to leave Monday as long as I have a place to sleep.

    You don't have to go both ways. I can offer just a ride to or from PAX. I just expect you to chip in for gas... and not stink up the car. I have a CRV so I can comfortably fit 3 more people with good amount of luggage space.

    Please email me at buyingstuffoncraigslist at gmail if interested ASAP. I don't mind making a slight detour to pick you up.
