4wd F150. Taking the shortcut through ONTARIO.

Since you don't have a license, you might also not be aware how sucky 6 hours of driving east of the Mississippi is. 12? No... so factor in that motel room too.
well then, i better hope for something with better mileage ><

FINALLY getting google maps to work, looks like going round the long way is 619 miles, so taking all my large items is definitely positively out of the question. SO. one human, 2 dogs, a few boxes of stuff. Much easier! and cheaper. and yes i have no issue factoring in a hotel stay of course, just didnt occur to me. im careful with my money, not an asshole

Here's an article with tips on ride-sharing:



1100 miles to put on your car is a lot to ask for (and that's if someone is right where you currently are). I think you'd have to also pay some more for wear and tear on a car, tires, etc. than just snacks and gas.

well if someone wants to offer but needs more money then we can probably talk. telling me all the reasons this wont work and why im an idiot isnt helpful. i dont have the option to just not move, so whatever i need to do to make this happen, be it leave everything i own behind, be it pay more than i can reasonably afford, i have to do it.

Do you know anyone in NY? That might be another option for help. Or you could do a halvsies thing where the MI person meets up with a NY person half way, thus cutting down on overnighting and wear and tear expenses for each person.

Aye Im looking into that stuff too. Also checking the CL rideshare areas for things west of me, have found a few people starting in chicago and going to NY, but they are leaving today/tomorrow

did some price quoting on rental cars if i can get someone to drive the rental for me, and thats over $300 one way by itself, even for a little ford focus/chevy spark/etc. this would be bloody easier if i had a car myself but i dont and i cant.

How long/why are you moving? Is getting your license an option (although I wouldn't recommend a new driver drive from MI to NY...but...)?

Are you moving tomorrow? Because you can get your license in a day, at least a temporary.
