Ride Request Northward - Hello, I'm a gardener/baker/yoga teacher in Pescadero, warming up to a journey North come the end of the month. I'm envisioning myself in sunny San Diego, but I would be thrilled for any assistance getting at least to Baja Norte where I can catch a cheaper bus. I will gladly share gas money, snacks, poems, ideas, pleasant silence, and driving assistance if you would like. Sometime between the 23rd and the 28th would be ideal, but I am wicked flexible. Thanks! - Jacob Wartell, jwartell [- at -] coa.edu

Thanks, Carys and Benji - Benji Nagel, nagelben [- at -] yahoo.com, Baja California Sur
