Set to make $50 bucks each way, seriously? I know you drive a gas guzzler, but sheesh. I have three extra spots from Palm Springs and I'll leave about 1:00 each day and coming back nightly. Ride for free, pay what you want, buy me a beer, I don't really care... I'm headed that freaking way anyway.
I figured you were headed out to Coachella anyway, my bad. However, with a lot of people offering free rides (like myself) you may be better off not even trying... time may be better spent elsewhere? I've been unemployed and know where're you're coming from, so good luck to you.
