Edit... Soooo... I need a ride to AC.  My original ride I had to back out of because I can't go up Tuesday.  I cannot leave my old car anywhere strange.  Youd have to come to me to pick me up.  I can help pay gas and tolls.  Ignore old comments.  I am still looking.

 

For once I want to relax instead of panicing on the way to AC.  I'd like to for once... Not drive.  I would be bringing two partial fursuits and a suitcase.  I don't smoke, and I'm quiet.  I'm a 34 year old female.  I can pay what is needed to share a ride.  I'm located in Montgomery county PA.  I need a ride there and back June 28th to July 3rd.  I'm staying at the Westin.

Montgomery county is quite a bit out of my way. But if you can make it to Clarks Summit, PA (very end of the Northeast Extension), I'll be happy to give you a ride from there.

I should be able.  I am trying to resist driving into Pittsburgh.  I get lost every time and the drive stresses me.  Can you message me the adress and would you have a safe place for my car during that time?

If you can get yourself to Allentown, I'm already meeting someone else there and I'd take you both.

I would assume it would have to be up to that someone else.  Like I'd have to wait at their place till you come. XP

You could also plan the trip up (to Allentown) and I'd be able to schedule around the time you arrive. (or the other way around even, depending on how you'd get up here)

 

Of course nothing's set in stone at this point, I'm only a single option. Others have suggested Amtrak and the like. If you'd rather ride in a car, send me a PM and we can plan things out.

If you can do Amtrak, the Pennsylvanian drops you off literally right behind The Westin. there are stops in Trenton, NJ, Philly, Paoli, and Exton if any of those are close. I ride back and forth to Philly a lot because I hate driving.

Where do you store your stuff though? I'd have a suitcase and tote.  I'm a fursuiter.  I also know nothing about trains.  Lol Exton may be closer but I'm not sure.

Quick description of the Pennsylvanian, the train in question. 

https://www.amtrak.com/servlet/ContentServer?c=AM_Route_C&pagename=am%2FLayout&cid=1241245666958

IIRC, there is both overhead and underseat storage and (possibly) an open area at the end of one car where you can just leave stuff out in the open against one side of the train.  It leaves Philly at around 12:30 and arrives in Pittsburgh around 8:00PM.  There are power outlets at each set of seats so you can power entertainment devices the whole trip.  (There are only two sockets, so you might want to bring a small power strip/extension cord.)  The trip goes through mountains and tunnels, so you will NOT have WI-FI all the way, just in certain locations, so load any device before you leave.

Also, Kage usually gets a discount on Amtrak fares, so check in the Travel Information tab to the left.

And one of the best summaries:

Yep!

Rooms are relatively easy to find. Transportation can get tricky.

There are a lot of furs in my area but I don't get along with them.  Very cliche.  I'm going to end up driving myself It looks like.  Sucks... I'm going to be having bad aniexty the whole con.  Dreading driving out of that city.  I get lost every single time.  It's so hard getting on the right road to get out.
