    Dumb question but i'm still new to the area, there are two park and ride on I 70. One is in Cooksville off of I-70 at Frederick Rd & MD 97 - 19 spaces. The other one is in Woodbine I-70 & MD 94 - 42 spaces. Which one are we going to?

    OK, Kathy. I go past Towson, so that's convenient. You are in!

    Me too, Diane, I know where it is, but I couldn't give you directions by road names. I know it's the Park and Ride just off Rt 70 and 695.

    I am interested to carpool, coming from the Towson area.

    Commuting worked very well last time I went hiking to Harper's Ferry. If anybody wants/needs a ride, just let me know. We can arrange something.
