Rideshare/Carpool to and from our Hermitage with Aranya_Bodhi eRideShare Group

Ride Share / Carpool to and from the Hermitage

Dear friends,

If you would like to visit our hermitage to offer dana and/or you are coming for your own personal retreat time, please consider ridesharing to and from the hermitage. You can do this on your own with friends, or you can use our new Aranya Bodhi group.

Thanks to Sara Sacsteder for suggesting this great idea!! Thanks to other friends for requesting it.

To offer or request ridesharing, just follow the live link in quotes below. The service is free. You will need to create your own personal username and password. Our "*Aranya Bodhi Hermitage Group Carpool Center*" password is "*2hermitage*". You can add, edit and delete your own postings.

If you come to the hermitage regularly, please check to see if anyone else needs a ride or would like to share the trip with you. This may allow those who otherwise could not come to be able to.

As says: Ridesharing saves money, reduces pollution, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, reduces dependence on foreign oil... and it's fun!

We hope this works well for you!

See you in the quiet peacefulness of the redwood forest,
