    Re: ride share and morning meetup

    I'll have a car but I have to leave around 6:30-7am to meet up with the guy that made my dueling tree steel target and pick it up. I'll also have to be back by 3pm which should be no problem.

    I could probably use some help loading it / unloading it, so if anyone needs a ride and is ok leaving slightly early let me know.

    I`ll maybe have a spare seat or two in my rental, so long you dont mind me occasionally saying "oops, wrong lane" and swerving a bit at junctions and stuff :)

    The radios are cheap enough now, under $20. Technically you need a license to use them, but heck a FRS license ought to be a scavhunt item. I suggest you bring them!

    I've got 4-6 radios that I offered to bring if they would be helpful.

    I will have a car but I am lame at times and slow to wake. But I should have a few seats open.

    a smart plan will be to NOT start piling into cars until the time that the caravan is actually lining up and leaving, probably.

    in years past, many people would get their car from the garage in order to drive it down all the ramps, etc. with the Rio being basically a flat lot, that's a lot less hassle. just stand in the hallway out front of the Business Center waiting to see what's what... then at five or ten minutes before 8 AM drivers can go get their vehicles, idle at the curb, load up, and people all roll out at the stroke of 0800.

    Maybe, hopefully, the Rio will not hate on us using the pick-up/drop-off area for picking up and dripping off.

    Like TheCotMan pointed out, the bus will be offering rides once again. Logically room for about 10.

    Last year hotel security started hassling people in the parked cars in the convoy (during the meeting/briefing thing) behind the bus for staying too long in a no parking zone.

    It would be good if this year the bus/convoy could start from an area where we aren't going to piss off the hotel for standing too long.

    I might take you up on that offer (if you would be willing to reserve a seat for me since we're sharing a lane), though I would have a medium to large pelican case (44.37" x 16.00" x 6.12"), and a smaller bag with other gear.

    Although if someone would instead commit to driving me to lvsteeltargets i'll buy a race tree from him to bring to the shoot. He is about 16 minutes away, but close to a freeway, we would have to leave slightly early and drop it off afterward so he can ship it back to me.

    Or maybe I'll just get a rental car if no one offers.

    I don't think we're getting a rental car this year, so I'll be looking for a ride. I'll be happy to kick in for gas. I'm only bringing one pistol, but I will also have a box of tshirts (size as yet indeterminate).

    I am planning to have a rental car, and may have room for one more person, but no pre-planning with seat reservations -- that always fails. When we leave, first come first served. Also, know we will probably be leaving the dc shoot early, because we will want to attend some of the other Thursday events. Because of this, my car may leave only after 1 hour of being at the shoot.

    Also consider the HackBus. We have added a forum for them in case they do not manage to get their forum up before Defcon. (We all know things can get crazy-busy as con approaches, and the organizers put in a lot of time and money into transportation to and from Defcon plus related events, so give them a break if their forum is not up before Defcon.)

    A thread in the forums associated with hackBus on these forums is available, and I quote from parts of it here:
    (Emphasis on Defcon Shoot is mine.)

    Information
    Our mission is to provide economical and entertaining transportation to and from Defcon, the Defcon Shoot, and the Toxic BBQ. We do not charge for the ride to the Defcon Shoot or the Toxic BBQ. We do take donations however, both at Defcon and on paypal. If you are interested in getting some recognition or being a sponsor, contact me to work something out.

    In an effort to maintain an internet presence at all times, we have a distributed domain ownership and hosting structure. At the present time, hackbus.net is the only one in operation. However, the forums at hackb.us are said to reappear in the near future as is the intended main site hackbus.com.

    On the topic of an internet presence, we will have a live video stream of the trip and be updating our Twitter and Facebook.

    24 hours for almost all users unless a forum or thread is locked or closed.
    Exceptions: mods, admins, and forum leader/oranizers can edit their posts and sometimes the posts of others if and only if they are in the forum associated with a contest they are a forum leader/organizer.
