I am arriving at Eugene Airport on 9/13 at around 12:15 p.m. and would like to share a shuttle on that day as well as on the return on 9/18. Anyone interested, please contact me at njbristol@sbcglobal.net. Thanks!

I am flying into Portland on the 13th and I was not aware that I would need 2 shuttles to get to Florence. So I won't be using a shuttle after all. I have rented a car and would like to offer a ride from Portland if someone would like to share in gas expenses. When I booked the trip it would have been helpful to have been advised to fly into Eugene!

I will be attending this program September 13-18. This will be my first RS trip and my first solo trip ever. Would also be interested in sharing a shuttle from the Portland airport. I arrive at 3 pm on the 13th.

Hello hikers. I failed to mention in my original post that I am also seeking riders to share a shuttle to the airport (Eugene) at the end of the program, 6/26/15. Please e-mail me at Nuritholzman@yahoo.com

Hello Linda Hardy and Beverly Rasmussen, I got information about the shuttle from Omnishuttle co. please call me at home and we will talk about that. (805) 492 02 03. thank you.
Linda Hardy Jun 09, 2015 at 10:40 PM

Thanks, Nurit. I just saw this and think it might be too late to call. Feel free to email me at hardy328@yahoo.com

Linda Hardy Apr 26, 2015 at 09:51 PM

Hi, Nurit, My cousin and I will be arriving in Eugene at 12:05pm and also would like to share a shuttle. We will also need to take the shuttle back to the airport June 27 in the morning, since we are staying over one day.
Nurit Holzman Apr 29, 2015 at 02:36 PM

Hi Linda ,cousin,and all from our program, I will be arriving in Eugene at 1:06 pm,6/21will be glad to share a shuttle with you.
Linda Hardy Apr 30, 2015 at 04:29 PM

Sounds good. As more people show an interest in a sharing a shuttle, we can determine when to have the shuttle arrive.
Nurit Holzman Apr 30, 2015 at 04:43 PM

Right, I agree with you.

Beverly Rasmussen Apr 20, 2015 at 01:26 PM

I am flying into Eugene on June 20 and would also be glad to share the shuttle ride with anyone coming in that day.
Nurit Holzman Apr 21, 2015 at 12:44 PM

Hello Beverly, I will be ariving mid day on June 21st and going directly to the resort from the ariport. I see that you will be coming in the day before. Is my shuttle the one you want to join?
Beverly Rasmussen Apr 24, 2015 at 06:53 PM

No, looking for someone coming in on the 20th wanting to take a shuttle that day.

Nurit Holzman Mar 22, 2015 at 04:10 PM

Hey there ... I seek to find a ride share (Shuttle or other options), from Eugene airport to the driftwood resort in Florence, Oregon. I am scheduled to fly in to Eugene on June 21st @ 1:15pm. If you are interested, please contact me at nuritholzman@yahoo.com

Same thing is happening to me! I went last year, had a great time, but I keep getting messages for this year. Hope RS can correct this soon.
