    I will be renting a car at the Albany Airport to drive to Stockbridge and would be happy to take people from and/or back to the airport if their flights are scheduled around the same time as mine. I’ll be arriving at Albany at 2 pm on June 7th and leaving Stockbridge around 8 am on Saturday the 10th. I could take 3 people in each trip.
