FAQ entry 5.03:
But I'm new, scared, and I don't know anyone and I won't have a car. What in the world do I do for a ride?
First of all, don't panic. With very rare exception, there will be a
ride available for you.
The biggest problem along this line is finding a ride to your first
If you will not be driving and need a ride, we VERY
STRONGLY suggest that you stay in one of our
suggested hotels so you will be near other attendees who will be willing
to give you a ride.
Well in advance of your first DLV
activity, post a note in the DLV Discussion Forum
explaining that you will be staying in such and such a hotel and
that you will need a ride to some certain activity. With rare
exception, others will respond and offer you a ride.
Once you have made that initial contact, you'll find that it is
very easy to arrange rides with others for the rest of the week.
A few notes about rides ...
- Please accept a ride with another only if you are totally
willing to accept the risks of doing so, and agree that DLV organizers and
attendees will not be responsible if something unexpected
- It is not the responsibility of the listed DLV contact people
to find you a ride. If you phone the DLV contact people and ask
for a ride, you will be told to please take a taxi. (Taking a taxi
in Las Vegas is very "safe", even for beginners.) See below.
