I've had a car since I was 16. First, there was the two-ton yellow pick-up purchased at auction. Then the yellow Volvo. The maroon Volvo. The hateful Intrepid purchased at auction. And then Cleo, the Subaru station wagon, and the first one I bought myself.

So, I'm not really a rideshare-with-strangers type of gal. I've roadtripped, for sure. And there is a difference between a rideshare and a roadtrip. The former has all the glamour of Birkenstock clog, but a roadtrip! There's stops at Denny's, gas station bathrooms, and crap to purchase from the Flying J Gift Shop. Who can wait?

ride needed to Columbus (or VA!) for Thanks.
Is anyone heading to Columbus, Ohio (or passing through) for Thanksgiving? Ideally leaving late afternoon of Nov. 22nd... One-way ok.

Or if anyone's heading to Virginia (southwesterly, near Roanoke), that would work beautifully.

I can help drive and split gas $$. Let me know your fav. snack and I'll pack some of that in as well...

She decided to leave her love life up to the great masses who read Craig. If she got a ride to Ohio, she'd go back to Tom. And if she would be Virginia-bound, she would disappear from his life mysteriously. Which is why she had picked Roanoke in the first place.

My lover and I are renting a car from Tuesday thru Saturday so that we can go see my mama for Turkey Day. Looking for one or two more folks who will be down to help with driving, as well as gas/toll costs. If you've got some extra cash, kicking in for the rental would be great (costs about $250 total) but even if ya can't, we'd still like help with the driving!

I know some folks on here are looking for a way to get to Cleveland (which is veeery close to Youngstown :), so please hit me up if you're down for riding with a couple of fun queer girls

Christine, a college freshman and budding lesbian, immediately replied to this ad, her head swimming with visions of the three of them singing along to her Best of Lilith Fair album, snacking on GORP and sharing stories of loves won and lost. Christine is about to learn that some lesbians love beef jerky and Mountain Dew. And nobody still likes the Lilith Fair album.

My familt is going to tulsa oaklahoma for thanksgiving we are 40 miles south of dt chicago .If you need something or some one delivered for a fee, drop me an e-mail.

Keith figured he'd offer them $50 to take the cat down and drop it off at Shella's. She hadn't asked for it back yet, but he knew she would and in any case it was hers to begin with. When she left him six months ago, she just didn't have the room in the Kia. Keith was sad when he looked at the cat and always hated the smell of its food. The Lundquists were happy to take the cat, who traveled like a pro.

NEED RIDE: chicago to Indianapolis for 2 (m & f) nov. 23rd

My female friend and I need a ride to Indianapolis on November 23rd. And, she will need a ride back on nov. 25th.

Please email or call: 305-XXX-XXXX



They both found rides out to Indianapolis. Stephen and Gina spent the holiday with their families, who packed them up with leftovers and dropped them off to meet their rideshare partners. But the rideshare people had both left without them. It was during their scramble to rent a car and the hours-long ride home when they realized that they actually quite missed each other during the two days they were apart. In the line at the rental return counter, they kissed for the first time.
