    Beware of Hitchhiking MCers!! Forum Proposal (merged threads)

    In the interests of saving money and gas (and Pres Bush recently suggested it, too), could a forum be created to help coordinate drivers and passengers from common geographies?
    I was thinking this could help the single/two-person vehicles fill their empty spaces and help a poor micechatter. (Not necessarily for the family of four, unless it's driving in a spacious SUV.)
    Lawyers might be needed for the disclaimer, though.

    Just wondering over in one of the DL threads.

    After reading TikiRoomLiz's thread I thought this was going to be a great proposal story that took place in the Haunted Mansion. but no. I'm totally disappointed. I live 12 hours away. Who wants to carpool?

    Why, I already do
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Aw, thanks superstacie, it was my pleasure.

    My kids want to know when we are riding with you again. We had a great time!

    I strongly endorse this carpooling idea.

    I love this idea. I wish it would have been put out there when I had my DAP.

    ... but back to the OP.

    I think this is a great idea, and I tend to carpool with LostBoy every now and then since his bus takes him to Downtown L.A. If anybody else is interested feel free to PM me, I live in the Boyle Heights area which is close to Downtown L.A.

    Who's willing to pick me up in Ohio and take me once a week?

    Wouldn't things like this be best for the meets forum?

    I didn't know exactly where to put it, but my proposal is to have the powers that be create a forum just for carpooling, so it doesn't get mucked in with everything else.
    I figure people would put in their place of origin, dates, and times in advance, and others with similar features would PM the offerer/needer or something to that effect.
    Only downside is that one or both parties would have to compromise on the times, both coming and going, and that issues during the trip might arise to cut a trip short. And everyone has to be OK with that before agreeing to go.

    I wasn't meaning the suggestion... but it just seems like it'd be best as threads in the meets forum rather than a separate forum.
