    For those who are registered for the Mt. Washington trip on Feb 6-9, I'd like to consider coordinating carpool rental cars from MHT, and possibly offer a night at my Parent's home in Bristol, NH. has very affordable flights from BWI-MHT, particularly if you buy on a Tuesday or when they're having a sale (like right now).  Pinkham Notch is >2.5 hrs from the airport. My parents live on the way and have offered to let me and my new friends to come stay at their place, if interested.  Flights late on Sunday are usually more expensive than the first flights of Monday morning.  The monday morning flight is sometimes half the price.  

    We could plan to fly-drive to Pinkham Notch on Thursday Feb 6th (3:05 pm flight could get us to Pinkham Notch by 8pm), then on Sun Feb 9th not be rushed getting off the mountain to catch a flight, and just drive partway to the airport and stay at my parent's home (I bet I can convince them to have some beef stew ready!), then drive ourselves to the airport at the asscrack of dawn on Monday morning for the 6:05 am flight on 2/10.  Right now, that flight is only $118!  

    Anyone want to share a rental car?

    Hi all,


    I don't have the same itinerary as Dave, but I'm interested in sharing the cost of a rental car and/or hotel for ASW weekend.  I will be arriving in Manchester at 12pm (10am flight from DCA) on Thursday.  I will also fly back Monday morning at 8am, but I'm planning on staying in a hotel in Manchester Sunday night to be close to the airport that morning.  So if anyone would like to rideshare and/or share the Sunday night hotel, then please let me know.
