Wanted: Tucson to Grand Canyon (Tucson)

ride wanted

Hi All,
I’ll be visiting Tucson between December 6-16.

If anyone is driving from Tucson to the Grand Canyon, may I pool with you?
Please only serious responses.
I’m harmless.
I am not looking for a love connection, just a rideshare.
I will help with gas.
