Hmm, perhaps a bit late to ask...

Is anyone leaving Fest on Monday that would be heading past Milwaukee? I'm flying out at 6 pm and would love to catch a ride with someone

I'm flying out of Milwaukee on Tuesday at 7am and thus I'm overnighting near the hotel. If you don't find another ride I can leave a few hours earlier to get you there for your flight.

Jason, I think I can help. Lisa and I are leaving on Monday morning. You are welcome to ride with us in the 535d.

Hmm, the 535d might just beat the 'Wild Card' rental car I booked.

Is it true that some of the underwater river crossing locations have special accommodation for high-occupancy vehicles? I heard something about Carpool Tunnel syndrome...
