Ride & Room Sharing

Kim Estes, Bostin Christopher, Kevin T BennettThis message board is for people interested in sharing the six-hour drive from Anchorage to Valdez (and back again) to save money and experience the beautiful wilderness. Generally, this either involves getting a seat in a vehicle that is already traveling in exchange for gas money, or creating a group of people to share the expense of a rental car for the week.

  1. I live in Anchorage and am departing Saturday morning June 13th. Not too early. I will be at the conference all week departing early and back to Anchorage on Sunday the 21st. I am willing to share the ride with up to three other people. I’ll do all the driving as it is a big truck camper. If you are able to share a bit for the gas, even better. Let me know.

  2. Anyone interested in sharing a hotel room with two queen beds at the Totem or elsewhere. Girls only, I’m quite & easy going. Like my 8 hours sleep so that I’m fresh for the conference. Email me to discuss

  3. Hi!

    I’m getting into Anchorage on the night of June 12th, hoping for a ride down to Valdez either then, or on Saturday the 13th. Happy to chip for gas, and I shouldn’t need a ride back out – give me a shout if you have extra space in your car?


    • Hi Josh, I’m flying in on Friday, June 12th (arriving around 11PM) and plan to drive to Valdez the following morning in a rental car. Would be happy to have to you along. Please contact me via email so we can coordinate :)

      • Hey do you still have space in your car either on the way there or on the way back. Also are you Persian by any chance? Don’t know how to get your email.

  4. I’ll be driving down from Fairbanks (not Anchorage!) for the entire conference, probably leaving on Saturday, June 13 and coming back Sunday, June 21. Contact me if you’re looking for a ride, or if you’re driving and want to give me a lift.

    • Tom, I plan on driving the same schedule–in Valdez the 13th and out on the 21st. Would be glad to have you aboard.

  5. Hi! I’m scheduled to arrive at the Anchorage airport on June 12 around 1pm and would love to get a ride to Valdez that day.

    I’m supposed to catch a plane out of Anchorage at 8:26pm on June 21, so would love a ride back then.

    I’m happy to split gas, buy lunch on the road, share some of the driving duty, etc!

    • Hi Jacob–I’m getting into Anchorage at about the same time on June 12 and am leaving late in the evening on June 20. I’m considering renting a car and would be interested in sharing the cost of it. Message me on twitter if you’re interested in chatting it over! (@katekremer)

  6. Below is an example post:

    Hi there, I’m looking for a ride on Wednesday anytime around 1pm to 2pm. If you can help me out, I’d greatly appreciate it. My phone number is 123-100-45600 (or use an email address, but don’t assume you will get the email in time).

    And of course, if you are willing to tip your driver for their trouble or buy them a drink, let them know. It might improve your results.
