Any single women who might want to share a room in Septemeber? Singles on on a wait list.

I'll be driving down from Walnut Creek, CA, if anyone needs a ride. I'll most likely be going only as far as Carmel on the way back.

I live in San Ramon! Are you going to the Sept.20-23rd trip?
Shirley Maccabee Jun 30, 2015 at 05:26 PM

No, I'm going in July. Sorry!

Sharon Walther Feb 27, 2015 at 05:15 PM

I am flying into LAX. Is anyone interested in sharing a ride to/from? Arriving Sun, Mar 29 at 8:35 am, but I could wait for you am flight.

Given all of this frigid weather in Ohio, I'm ready to leave tomorrow for CA. At the end of the program, I'm going to spend a couple of days in Vegas. Is there anyone going that way?
Cathy Jul 06, 2015 at 08:17 PM

Valerie - I will be driving home to Las Vegas and would be glad to give you a ride.
Valerie Lee Jul 06, 2015 at 09:38 PM

Thanks, Cathy but I completed my trip in late March. Hope you enjoy the trip as much as I did.

Hello out there fellow travelers. My name is Arline and I'm arriving LA a day ahead of our program, on June 22 and departing LA back to the Bronx on June 27. At this time I'm plannig to taxi from the airport, but if there's anyone with a similar itinerary who is renting a car to go to Ventura, I'll be more than glad to share rental expenses. Looking forward to it all. Arline
Arline Thienel Jun 06, 2013 at 01:09 PM

PS: OR, we could share the taxi. Let me know. Arline
