Getting into trad...need a partner

I want to start trad climbing this spring. I think it's way cooler than the sport climbing I've been doing. I'd like it if someone could help me get started - teach me about gear placements and such. I'm 26, been climbing indoors 2 years, and leading sport outside for 1 year. I'm comfortable on 5.10 - 5.11 (sport) - but I'm expecting to climb 5.8 -5.9 on gear. I really want to check out crest creek! don't have a car - put happy to pay for gas. I'm free all weekends and pretty much whenever (I'm a grad student and I make my own schedule).
