  • Transportation Discussion

    Please use this thread to coordinate how you are getting to and from the shoot. I've dispatched email to all participants inquiring about their ride status. Some have responded, and i'll include a rundown here of the facts that they have shared with me thus far.

    Please feel free to post here if you are seeking a ride or even if you have a ride. It helps me to learn who is taken care of as much as it does to learn who still needs a ride.

    I'd like to make a couple requests here to those who are posting about transportation.

    1. Please be sure to post all of the following information...
    * What your current transportation plans are

    * What sort of car you are traveling in (big, small, etc)

    * If you have any free seats in the vehicle that you'd open up to other shooters

    * How likely you are to go to the dam (we'll accept everything from "i'm going" to "maybe" to "i don't know" etc)

    * How suited your vehicle is for securing guns if you go to the dam (locked trunk == good, SUV == maybe, pickup == questionable, etc)
    2. If you obtain a ride, or have seats that get occupied...
    * Make a new post at the bottom of the thread

    * Also please go back and edit your above post to reflect the change in status

I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

        Re: Transportation Discussion

        I am going to the shoot, unless something happens Wednesday to prevent it and have two traveling in the car with me thus far. I will not know until Friday if there are any others in my party attending.

        If not, I will have one additional seat.

        I will not be going to Hoover Dam.

          additional ride information...

          Kimrita & JX
          staying at Ceasar's but can make the rally point at the Riv that morning
          Class-III package shooters not bringing own guns
          they are down with seeing the Dam
          majelix
          single person, currently has no ride
          considering a rental car if need be... not to speak for him, but this could be an opportunity for any number of ride-less people to works something out. if majelix rents a mid-size car for the day for $50 to $75, and splits those costs four-ways or more, that's a far better deal that getting a taxi to ferry people out and back.
          majelix is also interested in seeing Hoover Dam
          TOOOL car #2
          i will be riding with mouse, who is also driving some sort of rental. whether or not we have additional room in our car is hard to tell. i might want to try to keep our extra seats open so that they can serve as last-minute "emergency" free spaces that morning. please do not plan on jumping on one of those, however, try to figure your ride situation out with other people here.

            Re: Transportation Discussion

            I'm in need of a ride. Doing class III and not bringing any additional firearms, so all I'll be taking up is a single seat. I'm indifferent on doing the dam, so am open to anyone willing to offer a ride.

              Correction to mine: I'm in my pickup with a passenger and I've determined that we will not be going to Hoover Dam afterward.
