Julie wants to shop and loves malls and there is stuff all around town we want to do. I need a car with room for 3. Mine is a is good for 2 peops only.They arrive the afternoon of Saturday, July 4. They leave the afternoon of Tuesday, July 8. So I need passenger wheels for 3 days.
Zipcar has cards in the garage just across the street from my garage. I could, conceivably join Zipcar and reserve a car for those 3 days. That would be a lovely solution as it would mean I could just leave my own car in it's own spot in my garage. But, if I can't get one of those cars, the next closest ones are not nearly as handy. And the whole thing, joining and renting for 3 days, would run me about $400.
A regular rental car would cost about half of that in car rental but the only car rental places open on July 4 are at the airport and even if I wanted to haul out to the airport on July 4, it would cost as much to leave my car parked there for the duration.
GRRRRR. This is really bugging me. I thought by writing it out, a solution would find me. Didn't work.
