Name: Deya

Car: I'll be renting a car.   

Cost: It cost us $200 to drive from San Francisco to San Diego last year, so that's what I'm budgeting for this year. You'd be expected to pay half of that, so $100 would be your cost, which would cover you for both ways.   

Days of Travel: I'll be leaving the afternoon of the 15th to San Diego and returning the afternoon of the 23rd. I'll be making one stop in L.A. for a few hours as well.

Spaces Left: One (1) seat w/limited trunk space.

Location: From Northern California (closest major city to us is Santa Rosa) to San Diego and back. We could pick you up in either Santa Rosa or Napa. 

Preferences and Description: I'm aiming to rent a large sedan, V6 if I can. Trunk space will be limited, but there will be room for a large duffle bag or suitcase.

Include a brief description about yourself: I'm a pretty chill guy, as well are my two close friends that will be accompanying me. We're huge nerds, so being able to put up with nerdy talks about comic books and video games are a must. Besides that, we're pretty nice guys.   

Specific behavioral preferences for car mates?: Non-smokers are preferred as we don't smoke, but we can make exceptions if you keep it to rest stops. We're all pretty clean and would expect you to be as well. Please take a shower, as it's a long drive.   


Any additional notes/comments you would like to add?: I hope you like "Would you rather..." questions, because I'll be asking quite a few of them :P

Contact Preferences: You can send me a message here on the forum, or contact me on Facebook.

Nissan 350z with 2 seats and a modest hatch trunk, can fit about a backpack per person so there is extra room to carry comiccon bags back

Hey this is my second year going to comic con, I didn't get the full experience last year since I missed most of the panels and stayed around the vendor booths, but I'm planning on camping out for the movie panels this year.

Specific behavioral preferences for car mates?
I'm pretty relaxed guy with a sense of humor, so as long as you don't ruin my car interior or something I really don't have a specific preference

Any additional notes/comments you would like to add?
I have a room booked at the Hilton Mission Valley with 2 beds, so if you want to split it would be $307 from july 18 to 21, I'm down with fitting more people to save on room cost.
If you already have a ride or full car we can still caravan from the sf bay area together down to San Diego just make it more like a road trip lol

Days of Travel: I'm leaving Wednesday morning 7/17 and returning Monday afternoon 7/21

Cost: I'm unfamiliar with gas prices in the US, so I would appreciate if someone could let me know. I will gladly chip in for gas prices as well as extra for passenger fees.

Prices are around $4/gallon.

I'm looking for a ride up to SD on 7/17 preferably earlier in the morning. Anybody carpooling up there? I live just off the 5 Freeway on the way to SD in Orange County. I'm not hauling too much I don't think. 2 Suitcases (one large and one med size) and a fold-able chair for those long over-night lines.

ALL ABOARD! Win a Free Ride to San Diego on the Whedonopolis Party Bus! (WootWoot!)

Comic-Con is fast approaching and we are all looking for the best/most stress-free way to get down to San Diego. Fandom Charities/Whedonopolis has the answer!

The Whedonopolis Comic-Con Party Bus! (WootWoot!)

Our journey begins early morning Weds, July 17th, picking up in Encino, then West LA, arriving in downtown San Diego around noon.

We return on Sunday evening leaving San Diego evening and drop off at the same locations in Encino and LA that we picked up at, arriving at approximately 10pm.

That’s right! You and a friend could enjoy riding in comfort on the maiden voyage of the Whedonopolis Comic-Con Party Bus! (WootWoot!)

Amenities on the bus include:
-     20″ TV w/ DVD player
-     drinks and snacks
-     games & prizes
-     someone else is driving (Marsia’s favorite amenity)

And it wouldn’t be Whedonopolis without some surprises, including a drawing to take place during the trip!

But wait! I said free, didn’t I? That’s right! Whedonopolis/Fandom Charities is giving away 2 round-trip tickets to one lucky winner. It could be you!

But how?

I’m glad you asked!  To enter just do three things. First, if you don’t have a Twitter, sign up (it’s easy and free). Second, follow @Whedonopolis on Twitter. Finally, tweet the message: “Enter the @Whedonopolis #SDCCPartyBusContest Click thru for info  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login” You can either copy and paste the message or RT it, as we will be tweeting it from @Whedonopolis. The contest ends on July 10th, 11:59pm PST and a random retweet will be chosen. The winner will be announced that week.

“But, Kelly, I want to ride the Whedonopolis Party Bus (WootWoot!), but I never win anything!” you say.

Don’t you worry your pretty little head.  A limited number of seats are available to our lovely, loyal fans for a mere $65 per person (lower cost than Amtrak or driving down and paying for parking). And because this is Fandom Charities, a portion of the price is tax-deductible! Just email Kelly at [email protected] with the subject line “Party Bus (WootWoot!)” and I will send you the details.

See you on the Party Bus (WootWoot!)!

Kelly, Party Bus Cruise Director

Re: 2013 Ride Share - From Minneapolis / Salt Lake / Vegas
« Reply #12 on: July 11, 2013, 07:52:56 PM »
Name: Digby
Car: Minivan
Cost: $100 each way (negotiable if going a significantly smaller distance, especially if there's more than one of you)  Will also consider trading transportation for lodging while I'm in San Diego. 
Days of Travel: Departing Monday, July 15th, mid to late afternoon.  Probably departing for return trip the following Monday ... some flexibility there. 
Smoking: No. 
Spaces Left: Up to 3 or 4 riders
Location: Leaving from Minneapolis / St. Paul  - probably heading through South Dakota, down through Wyoming via Casper and Rawlins to Salt Lake City, then to Vegas, then down on 15 to 215.  Willing to pick up passengers in these destinations or along the way if it works out.  Will consider an alternate route to pick up if it doesn't add too much time... e.g. northwest Iowa, Nebraska. 

Vehicle:
Plymouth Grand Voyager ... can comfortably hold 4 to 6  ... 3 to 4 is probably ideal when you factor in luggage.  Could probably have two to three pieces of fair-sized luggage per person.   

Include a brief description about yourself:
48 year old male, straight, reasonably easygoing, kind of introverted. 

I'm actually not going to Comic-con(hence the late posting), although I was  there last year .  Some friends and I accidentally scheduled a reunion comic-con weekend ... great idea if we could actually get tickets.  I was a hard-core comics reader in the early 70's, and I still occasionally collect. 

Specific behavioral preferences for car mates?
No smoking, sober the whole way.  I'm looking to get there by sometime Wednesday evening, so will be doing some long days driving.  This means I'd like help with the driving.  If I get the right crew, I'm fine with driving straight through.  If I don't get the right crew, I'm not going to push it if I think there's a safety issue. 

If it was just me, I'd sleep in the van.  Which means I'm not planning to pay for lodging, personally.  There's probably only room for one person to sleep comfortably in the van... maybe two.  There will probably be two nights stop on the way there, if we don't take it straight through.  I'm fine with stopping along the way and sleeping in the van while you sleep in a hotel, or campground, o
