    JH Carpool Thread

    I know a lot of people are planning on driving to the Summit and a lot of people are looking for rides, so please coordinate here. It'll help keep the random summit threads to a minimum.
    Thanks,

    Need ride from SLC on the 7th. If anyone is planning on going from the Snowbird Big Mt. comp to the summitt, let me know. I can supply money for gas, a meal at Denny's, and beer once we cross the UT state line.

    Anyone want to Carpool from Denver?

    Was going to leave on Friday, Feb 4th - stay Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday night - drive back during the day on Wednesday.

    Open to rescheduling (if possible - depends on lodging)

    Not sure what your budget is but United has a New Years fare for the time you want to go. $182 roundtrip from Denver. You might want to check that out. Close to gas money at that price. At least for my vehicle. I was planning on going the 3-7th but the rest of my crew bailed on me for the moment. Maybe a last minute decision to go.

    It would be cool if you could join the roadtrip. A flight kind of takes the fun out of a road trip. You can't blaze up on the plane! Plus I would I have to buy a ski bag. Thanks for the tip though. I appreciate it.

    You must get pretty shitty gas mileage. Here are my calcs:

    Denver to Teton Village:
    538.62 miles

    Approx. 23 miles per gallon @ $2.13 per gallon (premium).

    Approx. Price for Gas: 1077.24 miles / 23 miles per gallon = 46.84 gallons x $2.13 = $99.78

    Shitty indeed like 15-16. Puts me $30 away from a flight. Know what you mean about the road trip experience though.

    I wish my gas cost was that cheap:

    Raleigh to Vail : 1728 miles
    Vail to SLC : 403 miles
    SLC to Jackson : 272 miles
    Jackson to Breckenridge via SLC : 675 miles
    Breckenridge to Raleigh, NC : 1700 miles
    Total driving : 4778 miles / 23 miles per gallon = 207.73 gallons x $2.00 = $415.47

    At least gas is cheap in the midwest. Anyone need a ride?

    Anyone in the Norcal, Tahoe or Reno area want to share a ride? What about a room?

    I have that whole week free, and do not have a fixed schedule right now.

    Well thinking about it. I would want to fly in the 9th and out the 13 or maybe the 14th.

    Too bad out deets didn't work out a bit better.

    Anyone else driving by there or flying into there or SLC same dates? Realistically can't come unless I get a ride from one of those places...
