I can pick people up near Los Angeles, in Orange County, and in the Inland Empire (as long as it's not too far away; places like Ontario and Corona are okay). I plan on traveling up US 101, so I can also give a ride to people along the way (Ventura, Santa Barbara, etc.).
I plan on leaving Thursday, but the time is flexible. If everyone can leave Thursday morning, that's great. Otherwise, we can leave in the evening. I plan on returning Sunday night (driving overnight until Monday morning).
To share the cost of gas, I'm asking for $30 per person.
