Today's trip is no big deal but when I transpose it onto CES, I'm in a world of hurt. So I caved and rented a scooter.
A couple of years ago when I went to CES by myself and was coming off pneumonia, I rented one and it was nice to have then. I think it will be good this time, too. At least I won't have to worry about whether or not I can make it and whether or not my feet will last.
I went to the CES website and clicked through to the scooter rental place and started the reservation... $198 for 3 days. Pick up at the convention center. Last time they delivered it to the hotel and I really wanted to get it Monday instead of Tuesday... So I called them and found out that they will deliver it to the hotel on Monday before I get there, then I keep it until Thursday night and drop it off at the bell hop's desk. $125 total!! I saved a ton on the hotel by going through CES but not on the scooter. So glad I called.
Anyway, yeah, decision made. I warned my brother. I think it would be a pain to hang out with someone in a scooter but it would be far worse to hang with me not breathing. He was very gracious about it.
