    Edit
    Things have moved along since I started this, post # 15 has updated list. I'll try to work out the best way to post emerging info.

    Original post:

    [color=][/color]We spoke a little about this in the Puglia dinner thread a few weeks ago.

    Have phoned & can get us a stretch hummer for $291 + 20%tip + toll. Will take 14 passengers + 6 large suitcases in the boot. Hand luggage can be inside. So around $26 - 30, depending on toll ( I have assumed around $10 for simplicity) Or if we have 10 passengers, could be around $36 pp. Estimated a bit.

    Alternately they have a van that will be $159+ tip + toll, for 14 passengers + 9 suitcases. Around $20 pp for 10.

    They also do a car for $58 + tip + toll, 4 passengers, 3 large suitcases.

    I quite fancy the hummer, so please post interest in the thread stating interest in hummer or van or either, as well as how many large suitcases.

    It is possible that we will end up with one of each. Or maybe a fleet of stretch hummers!!

    We can fine tune the details of time later. I want to get to JFK in time to enjoy everything.

    So, I am a) hummer b) van or car + 1 suitcase

    As much as I swore i'd only ever drive in a stretch hummer (and it would have to be a bright pink one) in Las Vegas, put me down for the Hummer. Why the heck not. Good way to start a F TATL ;)

    I am in for the Hummer ride with carry-on size bags (roller-board+backpack). I'm likely staying uptown (Upper East Side), but will make my way to the Andaz if this pans out (unless of course ya'll want to pick me up :p).

    If it only ends up being a van or standard car I'll pass and make my own way.

    We would certainly want to take the most scenic route possible, which may incidentally also bypass some tolls.

    Carry-on size bags only

    At half the cost preference to the van/car.

    Count me in with one roller board and one smaller laptop bag. I'd prefer the cheaper van/car, but will help fill the Hummer as needed.

    Count me in too - Hummer or van is fine with me. I will be at the Andaz and I will have one roll aboard and one laptop bag.

    I'm in with a roll-a-board and one laptop bag/backpack.

    Edit: I'm fine with a Van or Hummer. I would opt for the scenic route regardless. Van holds more luggage so maybe that's best? Everyone seems to have a roll-a-board and a 2nd pack and that's going to add up!

    At the moment we only have 1 or 2 large suitcases, so should be ok with the luggage,but I do get what you say.
    Hummer is my choice, just for the fun of it. :D :cool: And with the UD just rising back to 104 US cents, what a pity they can't do the boobie pink hummer!!

    My friend here with me in Hawkes Bay now used to work in the limo industry in NYC, and may be able to get us a good deal* if we haven't booked already? I'll see if he knows anyone with a pink stretch hummer, after all, we are doing this trip for Komen, right? ;)

    (*that is, when he wakes up... it's 6am here :p)
