      I'll be meeting Whitney and her roommate at the 11th & P park&ride for an 8:00 a.m. departure. We will stop in Davis about 8:20 to pick you up, Cosette. If John Ling rides with us also, that puts 3 people in the backseat. That may be a long trip for the backseat riders, but it's totally fine with me! Let me know.
