TRANSPORTATION SUMMARY FOR THOSE DOING OUR SOUTH FLORIDA GROUPER MANIA:

 

Tell us how you are getting here. Will you fly? If so what airport? (WPB will be closest but usually a bit more expensive than FLL or MIA. Do not fly into MIA unless you plan to rent your own car...its a long drive and a huge, crowded airport ... translation...AVOID if you can.)

 

Are you driving? If so do you have extra room in your vehicle to help another member get to/from the diving each day?

 

Plan on renting a car? Can you help pick others up at the airport?  Want to know when others are arriving so you better plan?

Please share it ALL here and we will help keep it organized so we can help everyone as best as we can! :thankyou:

Donnie, Kim and I are renting a car at the airport.  Donnie and Kim are on the same flights I am.  Jamie was going to look for flights tonight to see if she can get in close to when we do and will ride with us if she does.

Ok thanks! Thor is hoping to share the rental car so maybe she can join in with him since the 3 of you are covered. Thor arrives in via FLL via the DC area.

non stop from DC to WPB is the most convenient because of the timing.

 

arrive WPB on UA 6029 at 11:29AM on Friday.

depart WPB on UA 6029 at 1:45 PM on Tuesday.

 

this is tentative and as soon as i pay for trip, will book.
