I will be again headed to the southwest this winter and it would be great to have someone along to share the travel expenses. I've got a climber-rigged van with 2 seats and sleep platform. Will have some room for extra stuff, but have to admit I am not the lightest packer... so hopefully you travel sort of light.

Will be headed to southern Utah, mid to late October. Route traversing the country is open, though if it is heavy snow in north I would be leary to do that.

OR!

If you have a pet that needs to be brought west while you go by air - I might be the one to help! I do have Teddy(dog) so another dog is best. teddy would probably annoy the hell out of your cat, rabbit, ferret or parrot.

OR!

If you have some goods that need to get transported, I can do that(legal goods, of course).


Email with any questions.

Wow using gunks.com as a sort of travel agent/moving company. I like it. Track down a guy named James Reyes and I may have use for it.

I have no idea who James Reyes is, but... I'm not a travel agent/moving company. Just a person who doesn't really have enough money to get by comfortably who will be homeless for the winter if I don't get to the south where I can live out of my van!

If this James Reyes is someone who you think might be headed west and looking to share ride/expenses - since you apparently know who that is - feel free to let them know of this posting.

and same as a bove probably knows this. They registered simply to respond to you. Gunks.com has always been an atractive place for single person, many account trolls.

Bump! Departure date is Halloween! a/k/a 10/31. Though I can delay a day or 2 if I get an interested person who must party that night. But come on - wouldn't it bee eerily entertaining to spend halloween ...trying... to sleep at a sketchy highway rest stop!?

oooh dear...I just - luckily - asked a potential ride share for her(and b/f's, who she seemed to think would not have an effect on the sharing of gas payments) full names.... You think trolling the forums for CLIMBING partners is risky!?


Now I have to either come up with a story about "my friend is coming instead" or something.... where to star? spamming twitter for pay, softcore porno shots on Myspace....(I know I have the right person, but the bf not so sure but...if it was - then, no - I do not care for an angry white gangster wannabe in my car for days...


No climbers headed west wanting a rideshare? What - you'd rather fly for less time and money or something????

I suspect I'm not the only one who has NO IDEA what this means. You're scamming someone? You are looking for pornos to ride with? I thought you were offering a ride west.

Bringing race into any conversation is contentious.
Hanging out in crag lots ritually and not knowing any beta is just as weird to me as traveling across country with someone met on the Internet.

I think she was drunk when she posted that.

Terrie, sounds like you are making a good decision not to spend time with that "couple". Good luck finding someone else. Maybe this is a good year to just do the drive without other humanoids?
