I prefer to travel with a passenger; it helps to make airsoft more of a social activity. Having said that, there are certain protocols one should follow if catching a ride: offer to pay for gas, be sure to pack light, and be ready to go!
We have one local player who's always in need of a ride, but he'll never get another one from me. He never offered to help pay for gas or even buy a measly cup of coffee, he always kept me waiting while he ran around his house looking for some loose odds and ends, and, worst of all, he packs every bit of gear he owns into several large, rigid packing cases, which hogged every bit of available space in the car.
That kind of passenger we can all live without (and I hope he reads this, so he can get a clue as to why he's always left begging for a ride).
