I need to catch a 6 am flight out of Seattle/Tacoma Tuesday morning. I'm being somewhat responsible and have a class I should be in on Tuesday. Are there any ladies who will be heading that way in time?Of course, I'm willing to split gas.
I'm female, 20 and not an idiot so I won't be going back with guys or with anyone who isn't stone cold sober so please don't offer if you can't meet those requirements.
I might not need the ride but I am seeing what my options are.

People, please give this girl options! Yes there are plenty of us here who are in dire need, as in the "do or die" sense regarding rides or family members in need of tickets, but I'll be damned if we don't get our collective shit together and pledge both our time and efforts towards THAT which may or may not happen. BECAUSE IT MAY HAPPEN! I would LOVE to offer my selfless services , but unfortunately I am a drunk and stoned and sexed crazed man, so ladies of the board we call on you! (that being Stormy, Cat, Souly, Snorlax and possibly others, does a wigged Lumpy count?). Do what's right here ladies (or wigged Lumpy).
Also Barrelofmonkeys, there is a straight edged professional driver who used to work for a private contractor escorting diplomats in Falujah who posts on here from time to time. Her name is Peacefulchick. I can PM you with the deats if you want (I will note that she does charge a fee beyond gas).

I'm sorry, I don't mean to sound demanding, if that's what it came off as, Friendly. I've been lurking the boards long enough to know that there are some trustful guys on this board and I've also been lurking long enough to know that most of them will not be sober. You really can't blame me for trying to be cautious when getting rides from people on the internet.
I am also not asking anyone to go out of their way, just hoping that there is someone who will be heading that way anyways.
If you could PM with her details, I'd appreciate it.

First, this isn't about being demanding and second, I give you kudos for seeking out something that makes you feel safe (that's a good idea). All that is not a problem.
The problem is that we are not just a bunch of Precogs* floating in the glowing goo waiting for every 7 time poster to come on here and ask for things of us. That is not what is going on here fishinabarrel. We are a community and it gets fucking annoying when the neighbors next door only finally introduce themselves when they want something from us.
It's like if you saw a random family of Italian people sitting in their front yard and decided to stroll up and ask them to sort you out on a couple of things like lodgings and transport for your upcoming trip to Italy. That would be slightly rude and arrogant of you, dontcha think?
* From Minority Report, anyone remember Minority Report?

After posting that, I kinda regretted it. I hope it doesn't turn into a meme, unless Lumpy wants it. Their are some real horror stories of people with ruined lives as the result of becoming internet memes. Sorry Lumps.

So your flight leaves at 6 am from Seattle on Tuesday, meaning you need to be out of the Gorge on Monday night -- I suppose what you need is a ride from someone after Wilco finishes straight to the airport.
That's about when I'll be leaving, driving with my girlfriend and sister. Wish I could help, but I am a documented male and accordingly incapable of coming near you without committing grievous sexual assault.

Yeah, I totally get where you're coming from, Friendly. I read the board religiously, I just don't feel I have that much insight or funnies to contribute to the board that much, so I don't. I wish I were more involved, I just happen to be quiet on the internet. I guess I forget that you all don't know that I'm just kind of watching from the corner the whole time.
Maybe I should be more clear about the guy thing, I do not want to be the only girl in a car of people I don't know because that seems sketch to me. Interstateeight, that is actually what I'm looking for. I know a lot of people leave directly after because that's what I did last year and there was a lot of traffic.
