ride offered

I offer rides when feasible for people who otherwise can't get to a destination for various reasons, like:

Traveling plumber (journeyman), had finished working a 3 month gig in Santa Clara (hotel remodel) and needed a ride down to the LA valley with his tools and belongings. Couldn't get on a plane or a bus, as he had way to much gear (whole car full), he found me and we drove.

A couple lost a key fob for a newer vehicle and needed a round trip ride up to Hayfork (no public transit) to grab a second fob from home. The locksmith quoted extra because they didn't have a working key fob to program the new fob from.

A women in Sacramento found a rescue dog on CraigsList, wanted someone to visit the current dog owner in San Jose (during rush hour traffic), inspect the dog (healthy? has teeth? send pics!!) before accepting it, and then deliver the dog to her home in Sacramento. She located me and the dog found a new home (and a much needed bath!!).

Brazilian couple visiting Tahoe on an extended snowboarding trip, needed a ride back to SFO. They could've taken public transit (Amtrak bus) the day before the scheduled flight, but that would've left them in the city late at night and they would've needed a room until their departure the next day. Room for a night (and the bus) would've been more expensive, and not as convenient.

Couple of 'trimmigrants' needed a ride north (around Willow Creek, up a long dirt road), with multiple stops along the way for winter gear and work related supplies. The bus would've dropped them in town (Arcata) late, but wouldn't stop at Target or the garden supply shop along the way. I was able to help them get their jobsite, fully prepared and ready for the seasonal weather.

A Father needed an overnight round-trip ride up to Bend, wanted to visit his 'tween' Son for the first time since being placed in a multi-month wilderness diversion program (how did I miss that as a youth?), the father could've caught a round trip plane, but the timing wasn't right and this way he was able to do extensive laptop work (business taxes) on the way up and back (I've never said so few words before).

Lady with a 'show dog' (pedigreed), needed only the crated dog delivered to another dog handler (near a distant airport) for air travel to a national competition. She has now worked with me numerous times, picking up and dropping off this dog.

Of course, this doesn't work for all people or situations.

About me, scent and drama free, open mind, newer hybrid.
