I will be driving from Pittsburgh, PA to Indianapolis, IN around July 22/23. I have to be in Indianapolis by 6 pm. At 1 am on July 23 (in the middle of the night), I have to pick up Justin at the Columbus airport.
The A/C stopped working on my car and since it's an old R12 system, will be prohibitively expensive for me to fix. Therefore, it makes a lot of sense for me to just drive with the windows open, or drive at night.
Since the one person I know in Columbus is not answering her calls at the moment, we don't have a place to stay there, Justin hates camping, and neither of us can afford a hotel. No couchsurfers are calling us back, and I'd hate to impose a "1 am sudden visitor" expectation on anyone. There are no other flights into Columbus. I'm thinking I might sleep all day on the 22nd and then pick Justin up, make him sleep in the car, and finish the drive to Indianapolis that night before it gets super hot, then hang around getting exhausted in Indianapolis.
My other options as I see 'em are to try and a) find a couchsurfer who doesn't mind another person showing up in the middle of the night (and will answer my requests for help) and suffer the heat of the drive, or b) try to make justin change his flight to indianapolis and drive all night without him.
Help! Need more brains! And not in a zombie way!
