Rides from the airport

Post by jimli »

I know it's pretty close to the event and most people have got their plans sorted out, but now that I'm back in town, I'm taking next Thursday and Friday off of work. So if anyone still needs rides from the airport to the card store or wherever they're staying, give me a shout and I might be able to help out. Also Garrett, Brady, if you guys need help shuttling people to your houses from the airport or the card store, let me know.

-Jim

This is Tom right? Friday at noon shouldn't be a problem, shoot me a PM with your flight info and stuff and I can give you a ride from the airport to the card shop if you need it.

As for a place to stay, my apartment is kind of a cross between a 1br and a studio, and I'm not too hot on hosting people there, but if you exhaust all other options, then maybe.

I have no problems making multiple trips to the airport, so if anyone else needs a ride, just speak up.

Actually we might just go over to the store since Brady is already going to be there and I can follow him to his place I'm guessing, that way if anyone is getting in around then we can take you to the shop too.

You're welcome to crash with me Sunday night if you don't mind a somewhat early trip to the airport on Monday morning. I'm planning on making a trip up to drop of a couple of people staying with me.

Or, now that Scott is renting a car and flying out on Monday, I may be off the Monday aiport shuttle hook.

it depends on if we make it back to the hotel after barhopping all friggin' night, wearing our silk smoking jackets and slippers and carrying pipes (cigars are also permitted). if you can meet the dress code, you're in.

As Scott said, we will be renting a car, we both leave Sunday evening so we won't be around Monday morning to give rides, PM either one of us if you need a lift, we will see what can be arranged. 8)

Tom, Raveling offered to pick up me and Throdo at the same time on Friday afternoon, so if he's already gonna be there I'm assuming you could come with us and it'd save Jim a trip.

I'm still debating what I want to do Sunday night, and if anyone could offer advice I'd appreciate it. My flight is at 6AM Monday morning. Would it be smarter to
A) Crash at someone's house and take a cab mad early Monday morning (4AMish) to the airport
B) Take a ride with someone to the airport Sunday night, and crash in an airport hotel
C) Take a ride with someone to the airport Sunday night, and crash in the terminal

Thoughts?

you're welcome to crash at our hotel, although it's nowhere near the airport or card shop.

only thing i would say is don't count on a cab at 4 am. crash at someone's house and pay them to drive you to the airport at 4am, or crash at the airport/airport hotel.

You can call and schedule the cab the night before, won't be a problem around here. You can stay at my place, but it's a ways from the airport (the cab ride won't be cheap)

I don't know how the airport is about random Jewish guys sleeping there:) but that might not be a bad play since you are flying out so damn early :)

I've seen people sleeping at the MSP airport before, but it's definitly far far from ideal. I've been in a few airports where they have really comfy seats (amsterdam comes to mind) where spending the night in them wouldn't be that big of a problem, but minneapolis is not one of them.

I think garrett mentioned earlier, you can call the cab companies and schedule a pickup in advance, so actually getting a cab to pick you up that early is not a problem.

MSP has a fair number of hotels close by, but also unlike other airports, there is no hotel actually attached to the airport itself, the closest hotels are located like a 5 minute drive away near the mall of america.

Out of the three choices, i would personally avoid C) at all costs :-)

hope that helps
