When is the trip, start and end date. See you are leaving from CT... Does that mean the driver has to be from CT?

I do not think that should matter, but that the driver must present him / herself in CT in order to do the driving from there.

Would matter to me in a big way.. If I had to present myself in CT from Gauteng where I stay..

I am not being ungrateful in any way, and realise the magnitude of the opportunity presented here. But if I had the money to get to CT in the first place, I would have visited my mother three years ago. Sorry, I'm not trying to be sarcastic. I would love to do something like this, but seriously limited budget does not see me getting out of town, let alone out the country. But I would not want to take advantage of a person either.

Seems I would not qualify then. :sad:
