Looking for travel partners
« on: March 15, 2021, 12:08:24 PM »
Looking to possibly join up with other kosher travelers on future trips. Is there a way, possibly through whatsapp, FB, that people could find others who are planning a trip to have others join. Or possibly others looking to add another to their group. Maybe to get to a minimum number, make a minyan, help with the organizing, dont feel like doing another solo trip, split the transportation cost  etc.   I realize there are kosher tours out there but this would be for DIY'ers.

Start with a local DO of like minded DDFers?

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

How about think of a specific place and tentative dates, define your needs/wants, and post on DDF to see if you can get others to join? Iíve done that a few times on DDF and managed to form minyanim in random places, Sefer Torah and all. I guess this can be the dedicated thread for it moving forward.

I don't know the usernames of the DDFers I've traveled with, but you booked Delta glitch flights to LAX or Etihad glitch flights to JNB. You were ok, but some of you were way too noisy

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

The first 2 don't count.
Obviously. They were the first jj/mom on DDF and yet they somehow got to 1000.

I just posted this in the Motorhomes Adventure thread. Guess it wouldn't hurt to try here as well:

RV Trip planned for the week beginning Monday 6/28, the day after 17 Taamuz.

Hoping to find 2-3 families looking to do a similar itinerary so we can have minyanim Mon-Thu. We are 3 who are 13+.
Mon - Landing in LAS around 10:30AM, P/U RV (RVShare.com NOT one of the rental Cos.), Drive to Zion National Park
Tues - Bryce Canyon
Wed - Lake Powell
Thu/Fri - Antelope Canyon/Horseshoe Bend

Shabbos 7/2-7/3 is actually planned for Chabad Flagstaff, who offer full RV hookup.
So, meals & tefilos in Chabad with sleeping in RV.

Then Sun 7/4 (Grand Canyon) & Mon 7/5 (Grand Canyon AM then drive back to LAS to return RV and red-eye flight back to East Coast).
I recently became an avel and have to say kaddish, so hoping to still salvage this trip vs scrapping it.

Mom earned 1k status before she was mom, JJ was born a 1k. Both have maintained lifetime 1k status since

*DDFer goes on Trip with DDF stranger*
*Reports back with Positive feedback*
"Smooth trip with @..."
*Other DDF members use thread references to join other trips*
I try to sound as intelligent as possible.
