Anyone heading from atlanta to louisville this week ahead?

Hopin to go grab my bus...trying to figure out how to get there. Plane tickets are high, can't figure on driving because no hitch to tow something back and cost prohibitive...figure I need to hitch a ride...lol.

Anyone with a skoolie heading out of the keys and going northbound...

I took a bus to get mine, cheaper than driving a car both ways.

Yeah, I've assembled a Megabus plan here. Going to take some shuffling though. I am going to have to do an airport shuttle>taxi to civic center>Megabus to Louisville>Uber/taxi to bus location>bus drive home...lol...

Gotta get this done Monday...gotta get it done. 4-6 month conversion process, to full time. My gf and I are dumping this house next month...waste. I have a commercial building for the time being, with living space. During that time, gotta get this done.

I often use multiple forms of transit to get places... I fly, uber, Lyft, bus, train, etc...

also see if there is Car2Go in yur area.. its good to get short distances

Car2Go...I'll keep that in mind...

Well, a time thinking about all these and it's all come up til now. Came SO close to buying a Crown Supercoach II last year, but unfortunately got a bit blockaded by a middle man trying to take too big of a cut, and they ended up getting scrapped. Instead, my girl and I bought a vintage BMW in Seattle and drove the entire coastline down to San Diego (Hwy101, Hwy1, then I-5) (Petrolicious article here if anyone interested in taking a glance... http://petrolicious.com/meet-the-cou...s-to-get-a-bmw). In all the trip took 9 days back to Atlanta...great time, but we sold the car earlier this year (paid us back for the entire trip, the purchase cost and then some).

So, here we are again. In a couple hours I begin my journey to go grab this beast. I'll update later. Going to catch my shuttle in a couple hours.

Well, barely made my shuttle at 220am, but got there. Ended up catching the train from the airport.... 2.50 ride vs a 50.00 cab ride. Made it to the chaos that is megabus. On my way to Louisville and on schedule. Just another day I guess.
