I will be attending this program 3/24-29 and will arrive by train from Savannah the morning the program begins. If anyone else will be arriving by train that morning, and would like to share a cab, please leave me a message. I look forward to hearing from you.
Sarah McDowell Mar 07, 2013 at 09:59 AM

My last "post" requesting someone to share a cab from the Amtrak Sta. at the beginning of the program, didn't come through...so I'll try again. Hope to hear from someone. I'll be arriving in the AM from Savannah

Joan, I'm attending this program, which starts in three weeks. I look forward to meeting you if you're also registered. I've heard great things about Charleston.

Joan Gruen Feb 02, 2013 at 09:11 AM

It appears that these posts are from a past year. Who is going in 2012?
Joan Gruen Mar 07, 2013 at 10:22 AM

I am going 4/21 - 4/26/13 for this program & 4/14 - 4/19/13 for Plantations.

We are a retired couple from Nashville, TN, looking forward to Charleston, Oct. 7-12. Our first Road Scholar trip last fall was to San Diego and it was great.

Patricia Kennedy Feb 17, 2011 at 07:47 AM

I will be driving from Winston Salem, NC, to Charleston for this program. Is anyone in this area attending that might want to share ride?

Suad Jones Oct 03, 2010 at 02:22 PM

I am looking for somebody to share driving with me from Virginia Beach, VA, or from Raleigh, NC. to Charleston, SC. for the Road Scholar program dated 3/13-3/18.
Patricia Kennedy Feb 17, 2011 at 07:41 AM

I am also looking for a driving partner to Charleston. I live in Winston-Salem. You can contact me at my email pkennedy14@triad.rr.com. Maybe we could work out meeting at some location as you come through N.C. Pat

Susan Sanders Feb 15, 2010 at 12:25 PM

Anyone attending this date on the Connection?
Patricia Kennedy Feb 17, 2011 at 07:43 AM

I should be on the connection, but not sure. I plan to drive from my home in Winston-Salem. Looking for a possible ride-sharing person. Pat
