OT-ish: Need a ride to dallas

Submitted by ak47 on August 26th, 2012 at 10:37 PM

So if this doesnt belong on the board mods feel free to delete it.  Pretty much I am a student at michigan and have a ticket to the bama game.  However I was out of the country this summer and the people I got tickets with decided to fly down and by the time i got back to the states plane tickets were a little too expensive.  The moral of the story is I am looking for a ride down to dallas from ann arbor.  I have people/places to stay in both nashville (if you plan on stopping there on the way down thursday night as i know some people are) and in dalllas.  I also may have a ride lined up from outside mgoblog but its not for sure and since the game is in a week im exploring my options.

tl;dr If you are driving down from aa to dallas and have a spot in your car say hi.

If a car was travelling at 80 miles per hour, how long do you think you could grip the roof rack for?  I'm looking to only stop every third rest stop or so.

I once took a 28 hour bus ride from GR to Dallas... the last two hours of it were spent sitting next to a very friendly former prisoner of 14 years. He had just been released. Bonus: he didn't even shank me! I highly recommend this method of travel.

P.S. This actually happened.

Hitch hike across the country and people would actually give you a ride. Now a days, if someone were to stop it could be your last ride!

If I were you, I would just rent a car with unlimited miles for a weekend and drive down yourself. May be you could give someone else a ride and split the gas cost. Buses and trains are way too slow.

I'm traveling by Flew Powder. I can't disapparate this year, the prices are astronomical, and last year I lost bellatrix's ticket while apparating, boy was she pissed.
