Does anyone need a ride from Oregon to California Memorial Day Weekend?

Hello Fodorites,

We just found out the my (super nice) husband will be driving from Corvallis, Oregon to Santa Monica, California on Sunday, May 27. He asked me to post to see if anyone is needing a ride that direction, thinking that it would nice to have company and some to share the cost of gas.

Very Best,
Gem

I can't imagine that one or more of the 15K+ students at OSU couldn't use a ride.

Thank you, Sunburn. Hopefully this is just a one time trip. I just noticed that on Craigs List that there is a ride share section. You might want to check it out to find a fellow traveler.

I know of many people who explore and use the ride share on Craigslist.com here in Portland for trips to and from Seattle, SFO, ect. The experiences are often very interesting and rarely bad.

I would definitely check out that site and post an inquiry, then get full info of the person who responds before you put them in your car for the day.

Cheers!
