Chat here if you're interested in sharing a ride from the airport, etc.

Layla  (readingshoes) | 5 comments Yes, we (2 of us) will be very excited if there are any Booktopians who might be going from Albany airport to the venue on the Thursday (we arrive at 4:30 but alas don't drive), do let me know! Also the return - our plane is at 5pm on the Sunday... Anyone? We will supply gas money, chocolate, and good chat as appropriate.

Loretta (lorettalucia) | 136 comments I'm in a similar boat--going into and out of Albany, but as I've got a good friend who lives there, my timing is flexible, as I'll be crashing with him before and after Booktopia. I too am willing to pay for gas, rental fees and snacks and an audiobook for the ride. Let me know if anyone is looking for a buddy for the trip.

Seana (seanamo) | 11 comments I'm taking the road less traveled and flying into Hartford, CT. I'm getting in about 1p on Thursday and aiming to get back to the airport by 2p on Sunday. If anyone wants to ride with me either or both ways, let me know.

Debbie | 261 comments I would definitely be interested in company during the drive from Albany. I have not booked my flight yet so don't have exact times, but I plan to arrive on Thursday and fly back on Sunday.

...and anyone else, I haven't booked my flight yet, so we will have room for 2 people, and plan to arrive on Thursday and leave Sunday, but I don't have the schedule yet and don't like what I saw (6:30 a.m. flight from Albany on Sunday).

I will post as soon as I know my flight information.

For travel purposes we can tell you all that we will NOT be having our usual Sunday morning event. Booktopia will end on Saturday evening after the Celebration of Authors.

So, while I wouldn't wish a 6:30am flight on anyone, know that you won't miss anything Sunday if you DO have to leave early.

Michael,

Let's think about the logistics of this:

1. I'm not driving, so I would have to get my driver up that early
2. to drive 1-1/2 hours
3. to get me to the airport at least 1 to 1-1/2 hours early
4. for a 6:30 a.m. flight???????

I don't think so. I'll walk back to Ohio first ;)


message 9: by Loretta (new)

Loretta (lorettalucia) | 136 comments Debbie or Linda--I'd love to join one of you, if you'll have me. I actually don't have Thursday night accommodation yet (though I'm booked for Friday and Saturday), so I'll have to extend my stay, but I assume that that won't be a problem.

Great! I am still waiting to book my flight but tentatively, I anticipate arriving in Albany between 11am and noon on Thursday and flying out of Albany Sunday afternoon.

Roz Campion | 3 comments Debbie / Linda: Layla (above) and I are travelling together (I'm the second person she refers to!) and would love to take up one or other offer.


message 12: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Roberts | 59 comments I am looking for a ride from Manchester to Albany on Sunday. My flight is at 2:35 out of Albany. Does anyone have room in their car for me? I can help pay for gas and rental.

.Lisa, my flight Sunday is at 12:20 so if you don't mind getting to the airport earlier you're welcome to ride along with me and Karen

I will touch base with you when I book my flights and will be glad to have company on the drive.

Okay we booked and will be arriving about 11:30 a.m. on Thursday April 30 in Albany and then leave Sunday evening on about a 6:30 p.m. flight.

I'm guessing we will be hanging around the airport for quite awhile since we have to be out of the Inn by 11 a.m. AND my cousin (the driver) will be wanting to get home to NYC before the traffic heads back into the city.

We have room for one more person.


message 16: by Debbie (new)

Debbie | 261 comments I will have room for 2-3 people. My flight arrives in Albany at noon on Thursday and leaves around 5:30 pm on Sunday. I also plan to leave Manchester around 11am on Sunday.

Becky (beckymurr) | 510 comments I will be picking Deb up at the airport around this time, wonder if she is on the same flight with any of you & if we will see any of you there....


message 18: by Layla (new)

Layla  (readingshoes) | 5 comments We touch down in Albany at 4:35pm on the Thursday so sounds a bit late for you, Debbie. Any others arriving around that time and driving?


message 19: by Layla (new)

Layla  (readingshoes) | 5 comments We (2 of us) want to get into Albany as early as possibly on Sunday. Still looking for a way of getting to Manchester from Albany Airport on the Thursday around 5pm too. Feeling disorganized! Can anyone help?

Just responded to your message, Layla :-)

Layla  (readingshoes) | 5 comments Hmmm need to get to Albany Airport by 4pm on Sunday (or to a nearby place earlier than that). Anyone driving in that direction with space for 2?
