    Missed the bus by 30 seconds.... Rescheduled our outing to 8/4, because if we didn't get to launch site before bus we wouldn't make it on raft. Sorry we missed you guys.

    Awesome! I would love to carpool also if anyone has a car, I am in Schaumburg, or the city, for anyone interested!

      Me too! I'm also on the Schaumburg area (Elk Grove) and I don't mind pitching in for gas.

  • Laura

    There is a bus that leaves from Chicago.

    July 12, 2013

  • Steve

    Hi
    I would love to go but I have a question. I am in the burbs(Schaumburg/Woodfield) and it would be easier for me to just drive down I think. I would be able to pick up anyone on the way who is outside the City too.
    Let me know if that works for you?

    • Scott

      Did anyone call and ask them if it's okay?

      Hey everyone, how do we create and confirm a carpool? I'm not sure how to contact people directly. Should I contact the organizer? Looking forward to meeting everyone and rafting!! Jen
