Anyone going April 23-26 and driving from Sacramento that would be interested in a passenger to share gas cost?

Looking for someone that's done this program. I've done 6 of these things and would like to get my husband involved. This could be the one. Thoughts? Thanks. Maureen Valley Mt. Dora, Florida

Maureen, I did this trip with a friend several years ago and am going again. It was an amazingly wonderful trip. L live in northern california and learned so much about how the delta is formed and what it is made up of. Boat Captain really good and very knowledgeable.

I live in California and would like to do this tour. You'd think there would be local tours but I haven't found them. Anyway, the weather should be good in October but I'm going to be in China. Hope they do it again in April or early May.

Anyone else flying into Oakland Airport on Oct. 14 for Cruising on the Delta program and might want to share the Fairfield Airporter?
