Carpooling to Nationals from Southern California

My wingman for the trip to Bend is on the fence about going, so I'm looking for others to share the drive (and possibly housing). Departing either Wednesday or Thursday from Los Angeles, and my rack has room for four bikes. If you're looking for a lift and want to split gas (and it's a Prius, so there should be plenty of gas money for post-race beer) and are a fan XTC and Eddie Izzard, drop me a line.Also, I'm going to get a VRBO, so if you're looking for a place to stay, let me know.See More
