Room For Rent
Hi,

My name is Scott, I work at UMass and I'm looking for a place to live. A friend forwarded this listing to me and it sounds great. I've worked part-time at UHS in the BASICS program for over 10 years and am looking for a room/studio with bus access to UMass. The house I'd been living in for several years got sold and the new owners wanted to turn it over to a family. I'm a pretty quiet guy with a passion for nature photography and I'd love to hear from you if the room is still available. You can reach me by replying to this email or by calling me at 413-687-8213.

Thanks,
Scott Rasmussen

Looking For Someone Drive Cross Country With
Hello,

I have plans to drive my car back to California in mid-August and am looking for someone to travel with. I would prefer someone who is younger, no older than 40, responsible but easygoing to share the ride with. Men are prefered as it would make me feel safer, but i open to female companions, if we get along. Again, this would be for mid august, looking to leave around the 15th. Persons with travel experience, esp across the Midwest is a plus.
Please email jfdzialo@gmail.com or call 413-474-0754 and ask for Julie. I will ask potential candidates to meet in person beforehand.

Thank you.
