thanks heaps for the help. kinda seems that i would be better off waiting till i was in boulder to post on those sites for some lifts. which is kinda sketchy as id hate to get all the way over there and find i can only get a ride up 1 or 2 days a week. does anyone think it would be possible if i kept posting on all those sites to score a lift up 5 or 6 days a week. im under 21 so hiring a car is out of the question too which sucks.
