TDIFest is coming! Here's a place where those wanting to share a ride can coordinate

I'll start

Because of work it looks like I'll have to fly into Maine on Friday. I'd be arriving at the Portland International Jetport at either Noon or 2PM depending on which flight I pick.

Since it's right off of I95 it would be easy for someone to pick me up and it would save VeeDubTDI 4 hours drive time. Is anyone available to stop by?

Thanks!

-Jason

I'll be visiting friends in CT, RI, MA, NH, and VT on the way up to and back from the Fest. Once I put everything on the map I'll see how it works into the route. Seems like it should be a possibility.

That will work great!!!

I still need to find someone to catch a ride back with. If you're heading down 95 through Virginia on Monday let me know if you have an extra seat

Probably have a seat. (assuming I don't talk myself out of the return drive on the Monday holiday)

Wife said, have fun. she is not interested if all the snow is gone. now if this was January, she would be all over it.

Jason,

I am picking Aaron (+1) from BoraParts up at the airport but am not sure when his flight arrives. If it's close to that time I can grab you as well since the wagon has plenty of room. I'm only 75 minutes away anyway if not.

I am flying into Portland on Thursday evening. I rented a car and wondered if anyone else needs a ride from Portland to the Fest on Friday morning. After the Fest, my plane leaves 1:21 p.m. on Monday afternoon from Portland so I plan on heading for the airport after a leisurely breakfast, prolly around 10-10:30ish. If anyone needs a ride then lemme know.

I'll be driving back to old town (alexandria) when I leave. I will have a visit-stop in boston and another in millis on monday, but my terminus is much closer to springfield than baltimore is. As long as you're not scared of/deathly allergic to dogs, I can offer a spare seat for the ride back.

He might be better off coming back with you - read: more comfortable . I'll have [likely] 2 passengers plus a cattledog already, as well as cargo. I'll also be making leisurely stops in the boston area on the way back.
