    SG attendees - check in here for roommates and ride shares!

    Many of us are coming to SG 2018 from the farthest reaches of the country, which can get expensive pretty quickly. (Wait, who am I kidding? Even driving across town gets expensive if you're stuck in stop-and-go traffic while driving a gas-guzzler.)

    If you are in need of a roommate, a ride to/from HLS each day, someone to share the cost of a rental car or if you'd like to connect on the same fight or Greyhound bus (hey, no judgment here!), this is the place to post! Also, if you have an extra seat in your car and you'd like to fill it with a like-minded homeschooler, please post your vacancy here!

    ***Please note that MP cannot help you with your plans - these will need to be made on your own. Kindly refrain from calling the MP help desk to ask for a roommate!***

      I know I will need a ride or a rider who knows the way each day. I am NOT good in a new place by myself and I have never rented a car before! (yep, I'm __ yrs old and just have never done it.) How about a scheduled time with all attendees meeting in the hotel lobby and dividing up into rides?

      I'm game for a roommate, too.

          I am traveling from Columbus, Ohio, if anyone going in my direction is interested in joining me and open to helping with gas. I’m also interested in sharing a room. Thank you!

            I am traveling from Atlanta, Georgia. I am planning on driving and I have room for extra people. Would love to share the ride and of course has expense.

              Is there a favored hotel or airbnb that the majority of you use?

                  Re: SG attendees - check in here for roommates and ride shares!

                  Ah, thanks! Now to make a decision between the two.

                  Also, I'll be driving down from Indiana and can fit a few people in a vehicle for travel to and from.

                    Where in Indiana? I have some pals up there. Also, will you be involved with the new southern Indiana campus of HLS next year?

                          *Ryan, how is the “MP communities” supposed to work? I noticed Beth on “the map” and contacted her through the MP communities, but she never saw a message. (Where should she look to find it?). I “accidentally” met her at a mutual friend’s daughter’s Baptisim party! How exciting!

                            Christine – Beth should have received an email from "MP Communities" with your message in the body of the email. I can send her an email to test the address we have associated with her "pin." It is possible the MPC email went to a spam/junk folder.
