Bumping this old thread and looking for any Taxi/Shared Van updates or experiences during last December's Hukilau.

First timer here. Holly and I arrive many hours apart on the 13th, so I'll be heading to the hotel solo. Many in this thread state about a $15 plus tip Taxi ride. Is that still the case?

I'm leaning toward the Taxi ride, as it looks to be only about a 15 minute trip from FLL to the Yankee. Don't like the idea of spending an hour or more crammed in a shared ride van for what would normally be a 15-20 minute trip.

So, I'm looking for advise and your experiences from the last Hukilau.

Also...my arrival at FLL is scheduled at 4:00pm on June 13th, and headed to the Yankee Clipper. If anyone else is getting in around that time and wants to connect up at the airport and share a Taxi...give a shout and maybe we can hook up and split the ride costs and save some money for drinks!

Ditto for Holly, who's scheduled into FLL at 8:05pm, also on the 13th.

Mahalo!

I am flying in on the 13th (wednesday) around 6 pm and driving from Miami Airport directly to the Maikai. Who is on the same track and needs a lift?

Hey Prem-Ex!

I'd due to arrive at the Ft. L airport also on Wed the 13th, but at 4:58 on Continental.
If you feel like hanging out for another hour after your 4:00 arrival in order to split a ride, I'm game!
But I completely understand if you wanna start gettin' your Huki on ASAP.

I had fun running into King Kuke last year, who hopped in the car with me and my swell roomie Sandra who'd rented a car for the event. See y'all soon!

Just got an email from Southwest Airlines that they're having a sale to Greater Fort Lauderdale. The fares require a 14-day advance purchase, so if you live in an area that Southwest serves, haven't bought your plane tickets yet, and can do it in the next day or two, you might find yourself a deal!

Here's a link to the specials.

Thanks! But I'm afraid it will have more to do with getting my jammies on!

Normally, I would be more than happy to wait the hour for your flight to arrive. But earlier that morning I have to get up at 3am to catch my LAX-DEN-FLL connecting flight from Hell...and knowing that I won't get much sleep the night before and can't sleep on airplanes...I think I'd rather head to the Clipper straight away so that I can get a couple of hours sleep before Holly arrives from Houston. Otherwise...I'm not going to be worth poop for the rest of the evening. For me...it's going to be a loooong travel day!

But if my flight should be late in arriving and yours is not late...then maybe we can still share? I'll PM you with my cell and flight numbers and all that.

Mahalo!
