I am driving from Cincinnati, Ohio to convention. Leave Cincinnati wednesday, stay in middle pennsylvania (most likely) wednesday night, drive up to Maine thursday. Return to Sarah Leite (Bdn ’91)’s house in Guilford, CT on sunday, drive to Cincinnati on Monday. Wlling to pick up and drop off, if not too far out of the way, along the route. Will stay on 495, so I don’t plan to actually get into Boston.

Hi All,
I’m also looking for rides starting and ending in Boston (late Thursday night and Sunday morning would be ideal). I can also bring snacks, treats, and gas money. 🙂

    Alternatively, if anyone is driving from Brunswick to Washington, DC on Sunday, I would be more than willing to pay for gas, snacks, etc.

Anyway, I’m considering traveling to Convention all the way from Chicago. It looks like the best way for me to do this would be to fly to Logan and then either take Amtrak up or hitch a ride with someone. The latter option is preferable since it’s less hassle and means I would get to chat with a sib for 2.5 hours! I would bring snacks and help pay for gas.

tl;dr Looking for a ride from Boston to Convention on either Thursday or Friday, and a ride back on Sunday.
