ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

I am attending the Feb. 15 program. I am flying into San Antonio at 1pm on the 14th and am interested in ride-sharing either from SAT or Corpus Christi. I am planning to rent a car, but am flexible if a ride is available from either SAT or CC, of if you would like to share costs. Thanks!

Hello. I'm attending the 1/25 program and would like to share a ride/taxi. I arrive in Corpus Christi 1/24 at 3:30 p.m. I can stay overnight in Corpus Christi or go to Port Aransas that day but travel to Port Aransas on 1/25 desirable. Thanks. Nancy
David Martin Jan 03, 2015 at 04:25 PM

Nancy, we will have a compact rental car and can pick you up in Corpus Christi around 2 pm for the trip to Port Aransas. Should be able to stuff you and a small suitcase into the back seat.
Nancy Jan 04, 2015 at 01:10 PM

Thank you. That's great. Any suggestions about where we can meet? Nancy
David Martin Jan 04, 2015 at 05:29 PM

We will let you pick the pick-up stop as you will be w/o transportation. We have never been to Corpus Christi.
Nancy Jan 05, 2015 at 12:57 PM

I called the visitor's bureau and they recommended the Omni hotel which is on Interstate 37. I will be in the hotel lobby. Address is 900 North Shoreline Blvd. Does that sound okay?
David Martin Jan 05, 2015 at 01:08 PM

OK. 2pm on 1/25, we will look for you in the hotel lobby.
Nancy Jan 05, 2015 at 03:51 PM

Yes. Thank you. See you then.
Nancy Jan 24, 2015 at 12:04 PM

My flight today 1/24 has been delayed. I'd like to stay in touch via cell. My # is 530-592-8078. Would you give me yours? Nancyu

I am attending the 1/25 to1/30 program. Would like to find people to share taxi on 1/30. I need to be at the Corpus Cristi airport by 9am.
David Martin Dec 21, 2014 at 01:43 PM

We will have a compact rental car with us this entire week so probablly stuff you and your small suitcase into the back seat and have you at the airport/Corpus Christi at 9am on 1/30/14.
Marybeth M. Dec 22, 2014 at 09:42 AM

That sounds great! I will see you in January and we can work out the details then. Thanks.

Hi, David. Unfortunately I am going to have to cancel my trip. I do appreciate your help in getting a ride to the airport. Maybe I will meet you another time.
