Ride Board

Ride and Housing Board

This action is bringing people together from across America. Because of the overwhelming response, we’re offering this space to coordinate ride and housing shares for the demonstration Post in the comments below if you want to offer or request either a ride or housing. Please remember to include your email address so that folks can get in contact with you. HOUSING UPDATE: St. Stephen’s Church has graciously offered some space for people coming for the action from August 19th to the 27th, and then on September 1st through 3rd. This will be an open room with space to sleep on the floor, and they ask for donation of $4 per night per person. If you would like to use this space, please click here to let us know. TRANSIT UPDATE: The No Tar Sands Caravan has over 30 confirmed caravaners, and a route and itinerary has been set and needs you on board! There’s still space available for you on the Caravan to DC in California, Salt Lake City, Boulder, Lincoln, NE, St Louis, MO, Columbus, OH, Pittsburgh, PA and points in between! There is a southwestern contingent beginning in Tuscon, AZ and going through New Mexico and Kansas to meet up with the main caravan in St Louis, MO, you can join them too! http://notarsandscaravan.org/

    Hello all. We are five hearty women in our 50s and 60s who are traveling by train from Portland, Oregon to participate in the tar sands action. We will arrive on August 27th, and plan to leave for home on the 31st. We live together in a cohousing ecovillage (www.columbiaecovillage.org) and see this as a way to take our sustainability commitments to a new level. As you might imagine, we are highly cooperative and responsible.

    We prefer to stay together, if possible, and preferably near public transportation.

    Thanks!

    Hello. I’m coming in from MT. 39, male, returning college student. I plan to participate with events on Aug. 20th through Aug. 24th. (Classes start soon after that.)

    It looks like Bismarck, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Akron are on my route. I have room for one more, or I can park my truck in your drive and take a seat in your vehicle. We can split traveling expenses forward of that point.

    My truck sleeps one comfortably. (Campershell.) If I end up not using it though, I would appreciate accommodations for housing.

    Thanks.

    • Marianne Baum says:

      Hi Bill, I didn’t think I would be able to go because I couldn’t take that much time off work. But August 20th – 24th would be a reasonable amount of time to go out there. I am trying to organize a benefit party in Minneapolis in order to raise money, which I would use toward my travel expenses OR donate directly to Tar Sands Action or a local Minneapolis group that needs money to fund their trip to DC.

      I do not own or have access to a car but if I can get together the money to fund travel expenses, I would love a ride out to DC and back to Minneapolis if you still have room. I haven’t yet made contacts to find a place to sleep out in DC but I have relatives not far outside the city proper whom I can contact.

      Please let me know what you might anticipate in terms of gas and other expenses (approximations), and if you have room in your truck still. Thank you for posting!

      Sincerely,
      Marianne Baum

    Our community house and urban farm in southeast DC has a guest room with two beds in it. We can host two people who don’t mind sharing a room, for up to one week.

    There are fans in the room but no air conditioning, and we have two cats.

    I will be coming to DC for this action with 6 or 8 other people from Louisville KY. We are a committed, friendly, fun-loving group of men and women in our 50s and 60s, and would much rather sleep on a floor somewhere than waste money on a motel room. A church, gym, or large living room will do. We will bring sleeping bags and food, and do not insist on bathing facilities, though will gladly accept them. (You may insist we do). We’re thinking about the Aug 27 to 31 time frame, but this could change. Thanks!

    Hello,

    My name is Jack Basile. I am a reporter with the Lancaster Alternative Press, and a small publication called ‘The Local Act’. I am from Lancaster, PA. I, along with 4 to 8 other individuals will be coming down to DC for the duration. I will be reporting on this event with 1 or 2 photographers. The others will be taking part in the demonstration. I am looking for a place for some/all of us to stay. We will be happy to share expenses and we can get food for your place of residence.

    This will be a group of mainly males, however there will be at LEAST one female in the group. We are all courteous and respectful, and some of us live in community houses up here in PA, so we know the rules and etiquette of living with others.

    A place to stay for any or all of the demonstration would be awesome. Even if you have a back yard, most of us have tents that we can pitch.

    We all thank you in advance for your help.
    Jack

    I have a studio apartment in Takoma Park, which is a short walk from the Takoma red line Metro. This is about 25 minutes from the White House by Metro. It’s nothing fancy, but a cozy place to rest your head. I have one cot-thing that is comfortable enough – and floor space for sleeping bags and/or an inflatable bed, etc. Tell me a bit about yourself if interested.

            JJ, I haven’t gotten enough responses to justify getting a nice room … too great of an expense to foot the bill myself. I did find hiwashingtondc.org through some friends I lobbied with a couple months ago. If you book online, the price is as low as $35, but there is a 3 day cancellation policy

            Booking over the phone, the $35 rate goes up to $40 … for 6-, 8- and 10-person rooms, and the cancellation policy is <4pm day of arrival, no charge.

            Since I will have a few free days with friends of friends, I booked over the phone and got a 4-person room for $45 … easy out when I need to.

  27. roadrunner says:

    There are several hotels in the DC area that advertise their ecological commitment. If these hotels were to offer special rates [e.g., government rates] for participants in the tar sands event, making the trip to DC would become a real possibility for many of us. With shared rooms, such rates wouldn’t be prohibitive. In considering the hotels to approach with this offer, proximity to public transportation would be major factor.

    • Sara_Schedler says:

      Roadrunner,

      Hello– my name is Sara Schedler. I’m coming for the protests from August 22nd to Sept 3rd. I think this is a great idea– to get a group rate for hotel rooms. I’ve never done that sort of thing– do you have ideas for who would need to approach the hotel? Do we just need critical mass and then get in touch with the hotel manager? At any rate, keep me in the loop: Sara_Schedler@yahoo.com, (510) 384-4954. Thanks!
      Sara

      • roadrunner says:

        Good morning, Sara,

        Good questions. From my brief experience (arranging reduced rates for a family wedding party), a critical mass is indeed required. And more — a deposit [would probably be significant money] to cover no-shows.

        I’ll send an email to Bill McKibbon/the organizing team to see if they could provide the deposit and conduct the necessary negotiations in DC. In selecting the hotels to approach, it would also be good to know where the one-day training sessions will be.

        Stay tuned, Roadrunner

        • Ecantarow says:

          I’d be interested in the group rate, too. Please let me know. I’m very flexible about dates. I’d planned to come around the 27th and leave around the 31st. But possibly a shorter stay. Part of this for me is getting to know people who are willing to put their bodies on the line (oops, unintentional pun) and feel as fed up as I do about the vile corporations doing this.

        Hi Vince,

        I read that you’re going to stay for the whole thing. I am thinking of doing the same thing. But, I wanted to know if you knew what it will be like there meaning – is it going to be like a quickie walk up to the fence, get arrested, and everyone leaves, every day for 10 days, meaning like the whole thing will last one or two hours per day? OR will there be a rally every day or a demonstration in addition to the protests that lasts for hours every day? If it is just one or two hours per day, then I am not sure it is worth it to be there every day. Do they have a plan for what people who aren’t getting arrested are doing every day?

        Thanks for any info you have,

      Hi Phil,
      My name is Four Arrows. If you are a truther you may have read my chapter in Elsevier’s Hidden History of 9/11 (Bizarre Coincidence of Something Else” or my book with Fetzer, American Assassination. I’m planning on flying from my home here in mexico to D.C. so I can protest on the 28th in behalf of American Indian concerns about the pipeline. My wife is already upset with the cost of travel so i told her I’d sleep on someone’s floor (if not in jail.) I was drawn to your ad. If you might have room for a couple of nights, please email me at djacobs@fielding.edu. Check me out at http://www.teachingvirtues.net.

    Hello everyone! My name is Ildiko. We are working on organizing a Caravan from San Francisco to DC. Ideally we will start with a veggie bus from San Francisco and then head east stopping in Salt Lake City and other major cities to collect more people. We will probably take the most direct, CA-NV-UT-CO-MO-KS-VA route. For all of you planning on driving get in touch with me so we can meet up along the way, maybe hold some cool actions and press events where you are, and at an intersection with the proposed pipeline.

  77. C. says:

    My ideas and thoughts:

    ***Bus coverage for the left coast cities:
    I love Ildiko Polony’s idea to organize a veggie bus (which I assume means veggie biodiesel) from San Francisco. There might be sufficient interest from all the left coast cities, that we should have a bus start from the Vancouver area and come down the coast to meet up with us in San Fran, and along the way it could pick up people in Seattle and Portland–or meet up with additional buses starting from those cities if there is sufficient interest, forming a growing caravan! People could arrange additional stops in smaller cities en route. Can we get numbers from the 350.org organizers as to how many people from each city signed up so we are not just guessing whether there is a potential for this much interest?
    Route:
    From Google Maps it looks like route 5 would be the obvious route the whole way from Vancouver to San Fran. (But I’ve not yet ever been up north.)

    ***Hospitality for stopovers across the heartland appreciated:
    San Fran to DC is a four-day trip or more. I know from taking Amtrak that sitting nonstop for a few days and nights can be miserable. Also, to many people the burden would be eased by a shower and/or being able to have a nutritious, cooked, vegetarian or vegan meal at some point, hard to obtain while traveling. Are there volunteers to offer people a place to sleep lying down, even if for a short night, and/or to provide use of a shower, and/or to prepare group meals? Would your church be able to help? (I’m sure most riders would be more than happy to chip in a little monetary compensation.)

    ***Location details for bus starting from Vancouver:
    It just might be very wise to have people meet and board the bus on the U.S. side of the border. If border officials wanted to cause difficulties, it would be far less easy for them to identify and stop many separate individuals than a whole busload.

    ***DC area showers for people staying at St. Stephen’s Church appreciated:
    Do we have any arrangements for this? How many people are they housing? Staying in a big group setting is a positive as it can increase solidarity, allowing people to make more friends and support each other logistically (including pickups from local institutions which many of us will find ourselves visiting) and emotionally, which can be important especially for some first-timers. Mingling could of course also be good for general learning exchange and sharing of ideas to take home. But I noticed on http://washingtonpeacecenter.net/masshousing that it says there are no showers, so that is a drawback (unless there is something I am unaware of). Can someone local lend a bunch of buckets and cubicle dividers or such, so large numbers of people can take bucket baths in, say, a parking lot or wherever is available? Does anyone have a better idea? Does someone have a suitable place for people to shower or otherwise get clean and presentable?

    ***Location details for bus from San Fran:
    Bus riders wanting to meet in San Fran might instead want to choose a location just east of the Bay, such as a BART station in Oakland. Why: it might be easier to find a place to park and assemble in the less-congested East Bay, it would avoid hassles of crossing the high-traffic Bay Bridge, and probably many potential riders live in the East Bay too so going into SF would be the wrong direction for them starting out.

    ***Precautions against identity theft while you are away:
    If you have posted any identifying information in this public forum and indicated that you are traveling, it is advisable for your protection that you have a neighbor pick up your mail (stolen mail can be used for identity theft) and preferably keep an eye on your residence to prevent burglaries.

I am a 66 year old woman activist on climate change, who’s been working with neighborhoods and congregations in Maine on solutions to climate change. I am coming to DC for the action as I can no longer just be involved in the important local actions here in midcoast Maine and want to make a difference for my 5 grandchildren. I hope to carpool with folks coming from New England.

        Hello Andy,

        I’m sorry that I didn’t receive your previous request.

        I’m already housing Tim Wolcott for aug 21-24 and someone else who asked to stay the last week – but I don’t know which days that covers. … so, that’s two people, and a 3rd person who only wants space for Aug 29.
        I put one in my guest rm. and 2 or 3 in living room.

        So… I can probably take you in.

        Can you sleep on a couch or mattress on the floor?

        I have bedding so, no need to bring it.

        I charge $5.00/night if you can pay it.

      I will be coming on Aug. 19. Do you have space for the nights of the 19, 20, and maybe 21st? I can bring a sleeping bag. I will be driving from NE Ohio and wonder if parking my car will be an issue? I am 65, female, non-smoker, retired ecologist. Thank you. Carol Skinner tamarin50@yahoo.com

        Dear Carol Skinner,

        I’m already housing 4 people … on different, and some on same dates.

        I can house you for the 19 and 20th… but uncertain about 21st.

        I have bedding, no need for sleeping bag.

        My address: 641 Maryland Ave. NE, Washington, DC. I live on East side of Town – 6 blks. East of the Capitol.
        House Telephone: 202-546-0940. Call me for directions when you need them.
        I charge $5.00/night.

        Please e-mail me … and give estimate of likely time you will arrive .

        By the way, it’s very hot here.

          Hello Jenefer,

          Looking forward to meeting you. I’ll call if/when I get lost, and/or when I have a reasonable estimate of arrival time. I expect to make the drive in 7 hrs or less, so mid-late afternoon on 19th is a decent guess. Do you have a driveway I can park in or is on-street parking the norm? Thanks again.

          Carol Skinner

        • Tamarin50 says:

          Hi Jenefer,

          Last week you said you could house me for the 19th and 20th – great – but were uncertain about 21st. Do you know yet if you have space for me on the 21st? Thanks.

          Hi Jenefer,

          I estimate I’ll arrive around 3:30-4:00 PM on the 19th. I will need a place to park the car for the time I’m in DC. Are there any public lots near the Metro stations? What stop is the nearest to your house? Thank you.

            Hello Carol,

            I will expect you sometime on Friday afternoon (Aug. 19).

            No parking lot near by… but we will find a place for your car.

            The nearest Metro Station is in Union Station … which is North of the Capitol building and 6 blks from my house.
            There may be a parking roof on top of Union Station … but spaces may be rented. I don’t know. I have never tried to use it. I live in the NE quarter.

          • Carol Skinner says:

            Hi Jenefer,

            I searched Google for parking and found Old Senate Lot, at 501 E Capitol St SE. Is this within walking distance of your house? It looks close.

            Thanks. Carol

          • Anonymous says:

            Carol,

            Yes, that’s near by… and we can investigate when you get here. I’m not sure non-congressional staff can use it…

      Hello, I would be very interested in accepting kind offer to house folks. I will be there August 29 evening thru Sept 3rd, leaving late afternoon. I’m flying in and forget which airport, I think National. I’m pretty good with ground transpo and have a good map.
      Let me know if this works. To learn a bit about me, we have a local website, http://www.MovetoAmendOlympia.org Thanks a lot!

      • Anonymous says:

        Dear Molly Gibbs,

        So far, I have agreed to house 7 people – spread through the protest days. One person will be here Aug. 29
        And so, I can take one more on that date.

        You wrote Aug. 29 – Sept. 3rd.

        I think that will be fine. Sorry not confirm exactly, but protests (demonstrations) are uncertain by nature.
        August 29 is a Monday … and you say you will arrive in the evening. I will be here.
        I offer my guest room (taken for the 29th) and a couch or mattress on my living rm. floor.
        No need to bring bedding.

        I charge $5./ night … because I am poor.

        My address: 641 Maryland Ave. NE. My house is 6 blks. East of the Capitol. My phone: 202-546-0940
        I hope you will land at National (R. Reagan) airport. It is close to the city. Where are you coming from?
        You can take the metro at the airport into town … and I will give you directions from metro stop near Capitol Hill.
        I advise you to call/e-mail me when we are close to your arrival date.

    Anyone thought about camping? Apparently Cherry Hill Park campsite is close to D.C. and is right next to public transportation to and from downtown. There are showers, too, in case people are concerned with B.O. undermining the collective political persuasiveness.

      Steve, I am compiling a listing of people by region. You can find the full list in a long post on this ride board called CARPOOLS FROM POINTS WEST. There was talk of Daniel from Austin meeting up with people in Kansas City, MO. There may also be a larger-scale caravan coming from California and other areas to converge as we move east, holding press conferences (including where we cross the pipeline route) and visiting Tim DeChristopher if there is enough interest. If you would like to be included on group emails about carpooling and caravaning, get in touch with me or Ildiko at ildiko.polony@gmail.com . –Corey

      Here is the guy from Austin:

    still looking for a rideshare/place to stay in DC through the dates of aug 28/29-31. It will be myself and my 11 year old son, Tobi. He’s housetrained, quite well indeed, I promise! and people trained, and climate-change-trained, and 350.org trained!

    • Mollygibbs3 says:

      I can report that I will be arriving on the 29th, in the evening and staying thru Sept 3, leave in the late afternoon. I will need help with a place to stay, and hopefully on or near the subway for easy transportation downtown. Diana, I’d be happy to join forces with you and your son! I see there is a park to camp in, not sure how far it is to where we will be at the White House, but I wasn’t planning to bring a sleeping bag/tent…I’m coming from Olympia WA via Madison. Stay in touch if you hear something, and I will also. Friend I will see Friday knows DC well, and she may have a suggestion. If a few of us go together on a place, we could stay at a place in Dupont Circle with a kitchen, right by a Trader Joe’s. Lemme know, we’d need 3 adults and your son to make that work financially….

  93. Wit's End says:

    I am signed up to go. On the other hand I am very uncomfortable with this portion of the original letter from the organizers:

    “We will, each day, march on the White House, risking arrest with our trespass. We will do it in dignified fashion, demonstrating that in this case we are the conservatives, and that our foes—who would change the composition of the atmosphere are dangerous radicals. Come dressed as if for a business meeting—this is, in fact, serious business.
    And another sartorial tip—if you wore an Obama button during the 2008 campaign, why not wear it again? We very much still want to believe in the promise of that young Senator who told us that with his election the ‘rise of the oceans would begin to slow and the planet start to heal.’”

    Ironically in the next paragraph, they laud Tim DeChristophers “creative” protest, then go on to say:

    “Now it’s time for people who’ve spent their lives pouring carbon into the atmosphere to step up too, just as many of us did in earlier battles for civil rights or for peace. Most of us signing this letter are veterans of this work, and we think it’s past time for elders to behave like elders. One thing we don’t want is a smash up: if you can’t control your passions, this action is not for you.”

    I don’t recall the civil rights and or peace battles being reserved for people dressed for a business meeting. I understand they don’t want a “smash up” but that is a far cry from telling people they can’t wear t-shirts with slogans, costumes, or otherwise display their opinions through their choice of clothing.

    I would be very interested in other peoples’ opinions because I am honestly in a quandary. Usually when I take the time and spend the money – and it’s considerable – to travel to DC and protest administration policy, the corporatocracy etc., I think it’s a good idea to get the point home visually.

    Hi, all.

    Some transportation options from most atmosphere-saving to most
    atmosphere-destroying:

    small car with 5 occupants (four riders plus driver):
    0.032 kg CO2 per km per passenger (One-fifth of the per-car value below.)
    (0.052 kg CO2 per mile per passenger)

    long-distance bus (e.g. Greyhound):
    0.05 kg CO2 per km per passenger
    (0.08 kg CO2 per mile per passenger)

    Canadian intercity rail:
    0.103 kg CO2 per km per passenger
    (0.166 kg CO2 per mile per passenger)

    flying:
    0.12 kg CO2 per km per passenger
    (0.19 kg CO2 per mile per passenger)

    small car with solo driver:
    0.16 kg CO2 per km per CAR (The per-passenger # equals the per-car # in this case.)
    (0.26 kg CO2 per mile per CAR)

    Amtrak (US intercity rail):
    0.195 kg CO2 per km per passenger
    (0.314 kg CO2 per mile per passenger)

    I looked up these data and was very surprised to find that Amtrak is
    very high-emission (far worse than rail in UK or Canada) and in fact
    may be worse than flying. Amtrak’s number may be very approximate as they have gone through some infrastructure
    changes and had some inconsistent reporting over the years (according to
    http://www.cnt.org/repository/HighSpeedRailEmissions.pdf if you’re
    interested). So if you get a more up-to-date and accurate number
    (called an emission factor), then totally feel free to share. Also, I
    guess if they had more riders it would in the long term
    bring the number down as it is a per-passenger number (as opposed to,
    say, per-train).

    How I did this:
    I took the numbers from a spreadsheet published by the World Resources Institute, which was a companion to their May 2006 publication “Hot Climate, Cool Commerce: A Service Sector Guide to Greenhouse Gas Management.” I looked into the Amtrak number because it surprised me, leading to the explanation above. (Sadly, it is not a typo.) I could not, in the time I had, find a more updated version from the WRI, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t there.

    http://www.wri.org

    The number for the 5-occupant vehicle, I calculated by simply dividing the per-car numbers by 5.

    The spreadsheet provides other emission factors, for example larger vehicles such as SUV’s. I can email it to you if you are interested.

    Hi! I’m Jerome Wagner (male; 53). Looking for a floor to crash on and bathroom to shower in for the nights of 8/21 thru 8/23 and 8/31 thru 9/3 (plus or minus). Within reach of mass transit is needed, especially for the 2nd block of time. Willing to chip in some cash…

  97. Richard Van Aken says:

    Planning on leaving the 18th from outside Northeast Philly. Have room, it will be tight, for two passengers. My plan is to camp somewhere near a metro station and ride the train into D.C. if possible. If I can’t get near a station I’ll look for the shortest drive to a station from outside the city proper. The tent is capable of sleeping three comfortably. I’ll be staying from the 18th to the 24th returning on the 30th and staying to the 2nd. Anyone interested contact Rich at candyo_1@juno.com

    Hello! Anyone coming down from/through the Baltimore area?

    I’d love to catch a ride with you. I will not have an independent ride :(

    I’m a friendly, understanding and mature student. I will be attending on September 3rd so we would need to go down in the early evening/afternoon of September 2nd for training. I’m willing to stay at the or somewhere else.

    Also, does anyone here have experience with these types of events where we are risking potential legal/police action? What should I expect? I’m coming despite the risk, but I am young and new to this.

  100. This is great! Would welcome a place to stay. Coming from Chicago and looking into whether I can use miles. Low on funds otherwise :)

    Fill out the form at http://notarsandscaravan.org/ and we will work out our caravan from the South according to your needs and availability of cars.

    Incidentally I just checked with Hotwire and they have cars in Orlando for $10.95 per day, which comes to $20/day with tax and fees. I plan to rent and save wear and tear on my old clunker. Happy to have help with the rental.

    I am thinking of staying at the Cherry Hill Park Campground. Anyone interested in staying with me? The cabins are 90 a night, 5 extra for each person=sleeps up to five. And have a 3 day minimum. I am arriving Friday the 26 and staying until monday the29th. Anyone want to share the cost? A cabin sounds better than a tent…www.cherryhillpark.com
    email me if interested. Also I am dring from sSouth Jersey the 26-anyone need a ride???

    mhotz4966@aol.com
    or call 609-405-1026

  109. Charis says:

    Hey all, I’m trying to figure a way to get back from DC to upstate New York (greater Ithaca/Binghamton/Syracuse area is fine) late the 22nd or early the 23rd. Is anyone planning on driving back up that way at that point with an empty seat, or is anyone interested in sharing the cost of a rental car or something? I’d be happy to make detours if upstate NY isn’t exactly your destination, but the cost for rentals one way looks like about $200, and I can’t do that alone.

  110. tanvi says:

    I live in a group house of young 20-somethings in Capitol hill, I could have one or two low key people maybe stay w me after aug 22.

  111. I posted this earlier, but this list is getting quite long and wading through might be difficult. My wife and I are leaving western Pennsylvania on August 19 and will return on the 23 or 24. We can accommodate up to 2 people in our Yaris (tiny). Get in touch if you need a ride ( mbagdes@embarqmail.com )

  112. Sarah Murphy says:

    I know this is kind of late for the action, but I will be driving to DC from western New Hampshire somewhere around September 1-3… exact date still TBA, but if I find someone to ride with me I will pinpoint a more exact date. I can take 1 or 2 other people with me and my awesome dog.

    Heading to Detroit after the action, so I can also offer a ride to someone from DC to Detroit somewhere around Sept 5-7-ish.

    Email me at allaspiaggia AT gmail dot com if you’d like to ride with me either dates.

  113. Jackie Weidman says:

    Hello fellow protesters,

    I live in NW DC, and I have limited space, perhaps for 2 people on a couch/floor in my house. If you’re traveling solo or in a pair and are in need, please feel free to e-mail me and let me know the dates you’re thinking!

    I have a couch/living room that could comfortably house a few people that know each other. I live in Baltimore, which is a quick ride away, although I don’t own a car so I’m considering either biking to DC or taking the Amtrak, depending on how confident I’m feeling with my cycling abilities.

    Anybody interested, the living room is available, ian.logsdon@gmail.com or call 410-215-7079

  115. Mary Bolton says:

    Can contact me fir emergency couch space from aug 20 to 23 and from aug 30 to the 3rd of September if need be. I will be attending the action and will help a couple of folks if I can. Email is Mary.Bolton@Comcast.net. Am also checking with friends about more space. Peace and greenup!!!! Mary bolton

  116. Maria Ggn says:

    This is crazy and way too time consuming. You could use discussion pages on facebook ( every page has them ) or u could set up something with headings and let people comment back. A heading for rooming, another heading for rides would be a good start!

  117. Shodo Spring says:

    I still need housing August 29 through Sept 2 (morning) – have weekends covered. I’m very easy to get along with (but allergic to smoke)

  118. Shodo Spring says:

    After the action, is anybody interested in heading to West Virginia for a mountaintop removal tree sit? I have information and am looking for a ride.

  127. Carolyn Shaw says:

    A suggestion about housing: my “home church” in Washington, though I’ve lived in CT for years, is Westmoreland Congregational Church (United Church of Christ), Years ago my (then) affinity group stayed there when we were in DC for a Reagan protest, It’s a wonderful liberal church, environmentally conscious and welcoming. It’s located on Westmoreland Circle on the DC/Maryland line- for transportatiion a straight shot into downtown DC.

    I have an apt just over the DC/MD line in Mt. Rainier, MD. There is a major bus stop just at my corner, and three train stations within two miles (closest is 1.2 miles, a nice walk through neighborhood and park). I can house up to two clean, friendly people for 3or4 days.

If not, I’ll probably just go it alone, but I’d rather not – it’d be such a better experience to travel with others :) Thanks and hope to see y’all in DC!

  144. Zack, thanks for the compilation.
    Until recently, I had been undecided about my action day. It is now on the Interfaith Day of Action on 8/29, with training on Sunday, 8/28.
    I am traveling from Tucson, can drive (an old model 2003 Prius for minimized carbon footprint), and would like to make the trip as quickly, yet safely and legally as practical.
    With four legal drivers, we can make it in two days comfortably, with three, in three days.
    interested? awaiting response from bohemianouveau07@hotmail.com

  165. David says:

    Hello Folks, I will be taking the bus from Vancouver, BC, Canada to DC. Because I am concerned about being bounced at the border I plan on entering the USA by heading south to Seattle first. Then, if I’m not let in, I won’t have bussed 3000 miles to find out. This means three and a half days on a Greyhound each way. I may be so dog tired by the time I get to Denver that a shower and bed will be welcome. Across Canada I have many places to couch-surf. I don’t use credit cards; without them hotels can be fussy. If there is anyone in Denver who might put up a 59 year-old grumpy but house-broken male for a night that would be swell. Email: dvdclausen[ at ]yahoo[ dot ]com.

    Hello all – safehouse and support team request!

    My dear cohorts in this climate action adventure,

    I wanted to express how amazing you all are for putting efforts out there and taking steps one by one to make a difference. Not only do I appreciate you, but my son as well, which is why I’m creating this thread.

    Tobi, 11 yrs old, is an aware, conscious, and responsible young man. Although I believe true to my heart that his presence for the DC action sit-in will make a huge impact on politicians and supporters of the Tarsands Pipeline, I am concerned that, in the case in which we are arrested, his welfare is at stake, as well as my ability to nurture that welfare. Although I am completely and thoroughly prepared for arrest (including bail $$, court issues, attorneys, etc.), I am hoping that if this situation were to arise, I can find a safehouse for him during the period in which he can be cared for. He is very independent, needing only a book to keep him happy, and will be willing to do your dishes, household chores, etc. if he feels safe and confident that his mother will have taken the precautionary steps to ensure his whereabouts and comfort. I am willing to compensate for any time that he will need with someone who can provide his well-being if the situation should arise.

    To the point: Can one person, be it a support team member in DC, or another member of our group who will be present but not “arrestable” during our sit-in be available for the above? I would love to know that our efforts are not just for ourselves, but for our future generations, and theirs as well, during this action. Thank you in advance!

    with love,
    Diana April, Tobi’s mom!

    Sorry to be late in appearing. I didn’t learn about ringing the White House on 11/06/11 until I read the piece about Bill McKibbon in Rolling Stone. I’m in Santa Fe NM. I’d like to participate. I can’t afford it, which is why I hope to find people to ride with and housing in D.C. I drive a Honda van that might make it, and with riders to help with expenses I might try. Can interested parties contact me at rpcovelli@yahoo.com?

  215. Julie K says:
