Catherine Devlin, the PR person for PyCon, has been encouraging user  
groups to carpool to PyCon.

I was planning on flying. But with recent events and too many hours  
and too much aggravation spent in airports in the last year, I've just  
had it with security theater that is not making us safer.

So I'm renting a car (in order to have a nice new trouble-free ride)  
and driving to PyCon this year.

I would be glad to have any passengers who can stand my taste in indie  

The only hang-ups are that:

1) I am driving down the day before the conference proper (Thursday).  
So I'm not going to any pre-conference stuff like tutorials or summits

2) I am driving back on the day after the conference proper (Monday).  
So I'm not going to any post-conference sprints. (Sorry, this is all  
on my dime and I'm a poor state employee, not a high roller  
consultant. I spent all my conference sprint Forints in Budapest at  
PloneCon this year.)

3) I'm staying at the conference Hyatt and intend to park my behind at  
the hotel once there and not go roving all over town.

So, if that fits anyone's needs, I'm your safe driver.
