I am going to this program on 9/27/15 and returning on 10/2/15. It costs $70 one way for a taxi to and from the Roanoke airport to the hotel. Is anybody else going to the airport and would like to share the fare with me?

This will also be our first trip with RS. Looking forward to finding out all about how it works. We are from Ohio, traveling to D.C. for the weekend to see our son and daughter-in-law than down to VA.

I'm a first timer too; coming from va beach thought I'd try a close to home program for the first time

Same here. I'll be driving up from SC with my cousin who is attending with me. (I actually live in OH, but will be in SC to visit relatives.) We wanted to test the waters with something short + close by. This program sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun!
