Default Texas Bus

We should think of starting this thread to organize bus rides from Texas. If we use U.S. Coachways, which is in most major cities, we could potentially have buses leave from the major metros (Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin) or two or more buses leaving Houston and San Antonio in the south and picking up more people as they make their way north to Dallas and Austin. Beyond Texas, the buses could also pick people up in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, etc, or other states depending on the routes. Also, a great and reliable local Dallas bus company is "Buses by Bill"

Any thoughts guys?

Default Where are the other 48 people who will ride this bus?

The problem is that everyone (I mean those who haven't decided yet) wants to sit and watch, so no matter IV provides free flights/ free buses, they will still sit and watch the movie.

There IS such a thing as a FREE LUNCH, if only you would make the effort to eat it.

Default We did work on this

Folks:

We did work on this. The price of chartering a bus would run into approx. $200-$250 per person (for a 57 seater) which is pretty much the same as IV buying flight tickets for everyone, not to mention the journey time.

Consider this:
---------------
Money and Time spent on staying legal
a. Holding on to your H1B status - $5,000 (Including extensions/renewals/out of country trips etc. and the time spent)
b. GC Application route till I-485 - $10,000 (Time lost in productive billing hours etc.)

Total expenditure - $15,000 ( And I am being very conservative here).


I don't understand why people can't spend 2% of this cost to attend this rally.

Thats 2% folks.

Please think twice and attend this rally.
