  1. I would like to share rides from the Reno Airport to the Conference on April 28 and then back again to the airport on May 1. I am traveling from and back to Phoenix. Please let me know if you are interested.

  2. I am getting in at about 10am on 4/28 and leaving at 4 pm on 5/1. It looks like there is a shuttle we can book, and the rates go down depending on the number of passengers. Please let me know if you would like to book a shuttle together.

    • Hi Michele. I decided to rent a car and I’d be happy to drive you–and one or two others if anyone else wants in. I arrive at 11:23am on Friday 4/28 and will pick up my rental car at the airport. For the return trip, I’m not sure the timing will work as well since my flight doesn’t leave until 8 pm. Feel free to email me and we can work out the details. Same for anyone else looking for a ride. JLBerney@gmail.com

  3. Thanks Jennifer. That sounds like it could work, at least on front end. I’m happy to pick up part of rental expense! Thanks. Michele

  4. Hi, all. Getting excited about the trip. Jennifer, I’d appreciate the ride on the front end. Does anyone line up with me (4pm departure on 5/1) on the back end? I’m happy to share rental/gas expenses. Michele
