Looks like RSVP's have taken just about all of them. BTW, they wanted people to RSVP, but now that's on hold. Don't drive up there unless you can get a RSVP which might be hard now.
UPDATE (06/11/2019 – 8:22am):
We have paused the RSVP because we’re nearing the limit of how many of these are available. Please keep an eye on this blog for more updates and we’ll coordinate with people who have RSVP’d to send additional questions and confirmation. If people drop-off from the RSVP list, we may open it up again closer towards the day. Apologies if not everyone was able to sign up at the moment. Hopefully we will be able to accommodate everyone and try to do this again in the future. The logistics are tricky though.
Also according to this reddit thread there is a limit on two person.

Yev here -> HELLO FOLKS!
We will likely be instituting an RSVP
form (keep an on the blog - and I will be in here posting a link to it once we have it) to make sure that everyone gets a chance. There will likely be a soft-limit of 2 pods per person
. What's a soft limit? If you don't mind waiting and we have some left over at the end of the day, we'll round-robin them.
Folks thinking about picking them up
for a friend and shipping
them: these weigh about 45-50lbs. We have shipped them w/ FedEx before, and it was around $100-$110 or so, but might be more if international.
*Update -> The RSVP form has been added to the blog post: Storage Pod Giveaway
*Update 2 -> This form is now CLOSED
- we're a bit oversubscribed so I will need to take stock and make sure that we can take care of as many people as possible. Please follow along on the blog for updates.
