I am on the Charleston, SC trip beginning 4/19 and want to share a ride to (and from) the coastal Retreat Center. My flight arrives at 1:49pm

Linda Campeau Mar 13, 2015 at 03:58 PM

I am arriving at 1:52. Hopefully you will have found someone to share the shuttle before I get there, otherwise I would love to share. Did I see a price of $75 for the shuttle?

If all goes well, Yes, I would like to share the shuttle. Once we get close to the date, we can figure out who will mke the reservation. I am arriving at 1:45 or close to that, hopefully.

You can probably make reservatons any time now. I am coming in on US Airways. We will have to figure out where to meet. I don't think Charleston is a teribly big airport.
