Need Ride: Bay Area to North Tahoe 1/3/2013 PM

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

The basic story is that the kids and I are going up January 1st, but my wife needs to stay in town for work on Thursday the 3rd.  She wants to drive up after dinner on Thursday so she can join us Friday.  She really doesn't want to drive solo and end up with an extra car in Tahoe.  We've checked the various public transit options, but their schedules don't fit very well.

 

So, if you're planning to drive from the peninsula up to North Lake Tahoe on Thursday evening (say leaving around 7:30 PM) January 3rd, and you've got an extra seat in your car, please help us out.  We'd be very grateful, and pick up gas, tolls, etc.

 

Thanks.

I had good success with http://www.snowpals.org/info/tahoe-rideshare/ when I lived in No Cal

Thanks for the suggestion.  We'll check that, and zimride, too.  She's not too sure about the total stranger thing.  That's why I has hoping to find a Bear.

There's a very good chance I'll be going up that exact night.  But until we get closer (say a week out) I'm not a reliable option whatsoever.  If I do plan to head up then, I'll post it in the Tahoe thread in advance.

JayT, aren't you in Sonoma?  Or will you be down in the peninsula?

Yeah - I wasn't sure where exactly you were located.  I've picked up friends from the city before - just have them take the ferry to Larkspur and it gives me an excuse to swing by Marin Brewing Co. and get a growler of Mt. Tam.  ;-)

Yeah, probably won't work.  She'll be stuck at work in the Menlo Park/Palo Alto area until around 7.  Getting to Larkspur at any reasonable hour would be tough.  Thanks for considering it, though.

I'm going to be leaving very early Friday morning from the City. Would that work?

Thanks for the offers of help.  In the end, she flew from SJC to RNO for $80 and I picked her up there.
