MORE DRIVERS!

MW Miles Wilkerson Public Seen by 18

How do we get more drivers for the caravan? If we have thirty people in total (which is probably a high estimate) we'll need around a dozen people to take turns driving. We'll also need people who have vehicles without a lot of mileage.

How about going old school and put up a "help wanted" on east coast Craigslists? I wonder if that would work.

Welcome, Miles!

Can we focus these caravans discussions in the Caravans and Rideshares subgroup? I don't mean get rid of current 2, just going forward.

I'd say outreach outreach outreach, every way you know. There's info links for posting in the subgroup and the titan pad. I think Sally's starting a spreadsheet - or one of us will soon.

Never mind Caravans and Rideshares subgroup - I see you got another subgroup going for I-80.

there's an empty pad ready for that route if needed.

Sharetribe request. I just invited Alexandra to this subgroup; she is interested in being part of the caravan and willing to share expenses.

Heyo! I am willing to share expenses and also drive!

Hi, Ali, cool! Glad you are here. Are you meaning to drive in your own vehicle, or sharing driving in someone else’s? What are your planned days for leaving/arrival? If your vehicle, how many passengers?

This is probably the wrong thread, I'll say it here and another place if I find one.
I looked as some map, I do not recall where, that showed the caravan routes. My region is soooo bare. I had been saying to people "the southeast, excluding Florida, " because I expected Florida to have it going on and that Florida is not really part of the Southeast, it is its own area.
I am concerned. There is interest but it feels like I am the lone rock being thrown to try and hit a bell.
I am being set up with a fairly decent camper ( depending on your standards) and my cruiser is being outfitted to create independent power. I am test camping as we speak. It will take more than a day to get cross country.
I am beginning to think maybe a tour of the back country, something I would be very suitable for , to get a temp check, might be a god idea.

@juliaclark, the caravans are self-organizing units.
I suggest setting up a facebook event for a SE caravan with proposed dates based on your own schedule and then see if folks join in.

There was early mention of a Florida one or SE & FL - there was a facebook event page, but it disappeared.

For Sally's map, she's adding whatever comes across on these pages, fb, emails. I'm sure she'll add where you are starting from - send info.

Also you could put up a request on Sharetribe - or offer for riders, if you'll have room for any.

I am not sure what to write, but I'll write something.

I just looked at the offerings, there are two rideshares going to the wrong place (Kalamazoo) are they old or something else?

J

Jackie Sun 18 May 2014 5:27PM

they are last year's - once it populates with more from this year, they will fall away.

I created 9 new ones from NatGat this year to get the ball rolling and there is one from someone offering rides from NW and one requesting a ride (though I think that one came in a message - may not be on there).

so, yeah, it'd be great if lots of folks add items so last year's disappear.

didn't think about drivers - the various caravans could post Drivers Needed.

Julia Clark Sun 18 May 2014 5:54PM

Can they be removed. It is confusing.

Sally G Sun 18 May 2014 11:54PM

unfortunately, they cannot—I asked Jackie that earlier.

I have no idea where I 80 goes, but I want to help MAXIMIZE your opportunities for public outreach. If ANYONE has DONE this journey before, please send me the logistics for the route you took, etc. trying to map out 3 timed caravan options, one to arrive on 31 july 2014, one on 31 july 2013 and one anytime before that! =) thank you!
