I'm booked on the Magic on 12/4 and the transportation costs from IAH to Galveston are scaring me. One because they are expensive and 2 because it seems so wasteful to take a 'limo' service by myself. I'm arriving at 3:30pm
Perhaps someone here is also sailing and might be coming in on the 3rd and we can car share?
Galveston is one of those ports that it's not best to come a day early, mainly because of the transportation limitations. Also the airports rarely are closed or delayed so if one can get an early flight on the day of sailing that's the way to go.
Rental cars are not an easy option as no one is open in Galveston on a Sunday. I believe Enterprise has a drop off though. I'd think with the larger ships now coming to Galveston that a car rental agency would take advantage of the business--we'll see.
@Bonnie--I still have my S&S bubba mug and drink tea from it quite often. Nelly still owns the Mayan Pearl and also a shop next to the 7-11 just off the main square. I still get my haircut just down the street at Antonio's. My new hangout in that area is Wet Wendys.

As I type,I am eating Boston Baked Beans candy....that would bring a smile from home
Love Boston Baked Beans Candy. Another thing would be Fluff which was created and still made here as are Necco wafers.
I was messaging with the gal and mentioned New England Style Hot dog rolls & she said she might want some of those. When my niece graduated boot camp in Missouri I had to bring 8 packages of the things. I'm sure the TSA folks were scratching there heads at a suitcase with nothing but hot dog rolls

As I flew home from Ohio my bags were searched b/c they saw something in my bag under xray. They got a kick out of finding a 5 pound chub of trail bologna that I was bringing home for Liz. Its her fav! It can only be found in a particular Amish community.
We have recently furnished a CM buddy with hard to find bagels. USPS has delivered 2 packages to Georgia.
