Bus Routes to Santa Fe!

We should have "bus routes" where a chartered 55-passenger bus picks up makers along pre-determined routes and drives them to the conference. This would probably be a lot cheaper than flying and most definitely a lot more fun! (h/t to Dan Schneiderman for brainstorming this idea with me).

If we can make this happen I'd love to piggy-back this with a knitting/crocheting project for individuals on the various buses.

We have applied for a city of austin grant for this. Get it or not, we plan to host a Texas bus!!

Could also look at ride sharing apps specific to events. A lot of music festivals use these and they seem to work well - also avoids organizational liability and parking issues for buses.

Great fun! Maybe the buses could stop into "overnight host cities" that have spaces as they pickup attendees along the way. The spaces in the city can host a meal or at least provide a visit of their space.
