PAX Prime carpool thread

edited August 2011 in PAX Archive
Figured it might be a bit more proper if we pooled all future carpooling thread requests and anything more off-topic into one thread; didn't see anything in the search, so I figure this is good to go. I don't feel like driving alone (for boredom reasons), so i'll also be joining in on this. Fill out the form below (either "I NEED A RIDE!" or "SPACE AVAILABLE!"), post it and reply to each other via PM and give out your contact information per your comfort level.

    Seats available - 2-3 depening on how much gear everyone has.

    No, we have enough stickies, and if I add this one, I'd have to sticky every single travel-oriented thread.

    No worries from me, as long as people have a need to fill their vehicles up, it should be fine. Thanks anyways Moe!

    Because you're just looking for a ride up, I *might* be able to help out. I leave Tacoma normally about 4:30 PM to head to class at Seattle U, and I have class thursday night. If we could meet in Tacoma, probably a little earlier than that, I could drop you off whereever you need to be in Seattle. Send me a PM if you're interested.

    I started a thread about a carpool down to Portland for the Protomen gig at Lola's, because I won't be able to see them on Friday night. I'm sure there are other people who love the Protomen but won't be going to the after-party Friday. For those people, are any of you interested in carpooling down to Portland?
