    HELLO, need a Place to sleep for the Dutch open.. Is anyone driving to the place and can pick me up???
     
  2. You can always sleep at my place. But if you want someone to pick you up you will have to arrange that for yourself. Munster isn't exactly close

    I'm looking for a ride for the Dutch Open. I live in Volendam which means I can go to Amsterdam, Purmerend, Hoorn or any place in between them to catch it

    Stanford Fall 09

    Requesting a ride to Stanford Fall 09 from Southern California. No room necessary as there are always hostels, but a place to crash would be nice!
    Flexible on the departure and return as of now. I can provide my share of gas money, driving, snacks, etc. Thanks, everyone!

    Re: Bristol Spring: If anybody is driving down from north of Sheffield (or close to, I could always get a short and cheap train) and has a spare seat (or boot) in their car, I'd really appreciate the lift. Will contribute to petrol money etc :)
     
  15. My father will drop me there on saturday morning, go to my uncle in Eindhoven, sleep there and pick me up on sunday evening.

    Are you talking about in Aachen? I'm staying in a hostel with Lars and Ville.
    If Holland.. not yet.. I still havn't heard from AvG.
     
  19. I heard AvG is crazy busy these days making lots of plans that he will probably tell you all about soon.

    He is going to drive from THE house to Aachen on Saturday morning, leaving 6:30. And he will be driving back sometime on Sunday-evening. He has no idea where he will stay during saturdaynight but is hopefull he will find a place or else is willing to BFR.

    The first 3 to 20 people that show up at his house or a nearby airport AND can squeeze themselves into THE car will be the lucky ones :). That should include you Joey!

    Word on the street is... but ah, we will talk tommorow. (Yes, I'm coming to Holland tomorrow)

    Me, Lars and Ville have found a 4person roomed hostel.. we were just waiting for confirmation from you.

    So I will see you thursday evening Arnaud. I will either get the train to rotterdam, or if you're passing schipol at around 17:20, that's when I'm arriving. (On the 14th, tomorrow)

    ps: thanks maarten, but since AvG is now coming, I don't need a lift.
