Default Who is going to West Chester?

I'm posting in the spirit of conviviality--and for a practical reason, too.

I'm planning to fly into Philadelphia, as I did back in 2012, the last time I was able to attend. As I understand it, getting from there to WCU is something I need to arrange privately. Sharing rides seems like a good idea.

Are there modes other than flying that I ought to be thinking about?

So if you're going, do speak up just for fun. And if you're planning to arrive on Tuesday, 6/6, let's talk.

I'm going to West Chester on Tuesday. I haven't bought my plane ticket yet, so perhaps we can coordinate. I'll be in Dick Davis's seminar on verse translation.

So will I! That's good news. As I understand it, Susan de S. is also a Tuesday arrival.

I'll be heading in late on Tuesday. From New York, via train and possibly bus or Uber or Lyft or something.

I think I will be there Friday and Saturday, which reminds me to send Sam an email today. From the Philadelphia station, you can take Amtrak to Exton; it is a $15 Uber/Lyft ride from Exton to the campus (much cheaper than the private car services).

I'll see you all there. Also in the translation thingy. I arrive on the 6th at 7:45 p.m., and will be renting a car at the airport. Happy to give folks a ride who are already there, but, sorry, I don't want to wait for those who will arrive later since I will need to get there, get dinner, get settled and then get up super early for the next day. I don't function well at these things if I haven't had a full night's sleep. Anyhoo, let me know if a ride's needed and we coincide. Best, TB

I'll be travelling there on Wednesday morning from New York. If anyone else is doing the same and can offer me a lift (or even a ride) I will be very grateful.
