    Sodalitas 2020: Rides, room shares, and questions

    Every year we have folks attending Sodalitas who work out arrangements with each other to split costs and share other helpful information. Here is a thread where you can connect with each other. Looking forward to another great conference!

    Adding to this: transportation is a big hurdle for many moms. If you're already planning to drive, but are willing to ride-share, please let others know the general direction you'll be coming from so they can see their possibilities!

    I might already have someone coming with me, but if that falls through, I can share with someone coming from Chicago, Northern/Central Indiana, or Central/Southwestern Michigan.

      I will be coming from Northeastern Ohio. I am traveling on Sunday and staying in Louisville until Thursday morning. I would be happy to pick someone up along the way. Also, I am staying at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites and would be interested in splitting the room costs, if someone might be looking for a roommate. I already have reservations for Sunday night through Tuesday night. I will be spending Wednesday evening with a friend in Frankfort.

        I will be flying in on Sunday and leaving Thursday. I’d love to meet someone at the airport and share a rental car and hotel room.

          This is going to be my first year going to Sodalitas Conference. I was hoping to reduce the cost of going by maybe sharing a hotel with someone or an Airbnb with a couple ladies. I will be there Sunday evening through Thursday morning. Please let me know if you would be interested in sharing.

            Rachael,

            I would be happy to share my room at Holiday Inn with you. I only have a room for Sunday thru Wednesday as I am leaving after the conference on Wednesday. Feel free to private message me, if you are interested.

                    I am working on it...I would have to come alone since my boys have a baseball tournament the weekend before, and I would need to leave here at least on Sunday morning...It is an eleven hour drive for me, but I am planning to come :-)...I did not register yet though...

                      I am interested :-)...Having a roommate would assure my attendance since I wouldn't be able to bail out on my share of the cost ;-)...Sunday to Wednesday would be perfect...

                        Wonderful! I won’t make any arrangements to share with anyone else unless you decide not to
                        attend. I do hope you can come. I would love to share a room with you so we can get better acquainted. Let’s private message with details as the date gets closer. Just to be clear, I do not have a room for Wednesday night since I am leaving on Wednesday afternoon. I realized that by stating Sunday thru Wednesday, you might assume I was staying in the hotel Wednesday night.

                          I know this has been asked on and off, but can someone with experience please, please, please explain the food situation to me? I have an autoimmune disease and follow a very restricted diet. I certainly don't expect there to be *meals* I can eat, but a salad bar I can bring my own meat and dressing for, coffee in the mornings I can bring my own coconut milk for, etc. Also, is there a health food type store nearby where I can shop on Sunday? Doesn't need to be as large or varied as Whole Foods. Now that DH is home I am going to firm up whether I am coming or not! But I need to know about the food as that consumes (haha) a large part of my life and time and thought processes!

                            Yes to salad bar, yes to coffee all day, and yes to Whole Foods 10 minutes from the school. HTH!

                              No worries, you were clear...I thought you meant staying in the room from Sunday night to Tuesday night, and leaving on Wednesday, thus not needing a room on Wednesday night...If I choose to stay for Thursday and Friday, I can work that out...Right now my plan is to leave at some point on Wednesday...Thank you...I am planning to register in a couple of days after I have a chance to talk it over with my husband again...He wants me to go, so that is not an issue...
