Ready for Spring

Sat Feb 15, 2014 9:23 pm

I've been traveling a bunch lately for work. I was Denver this week from Sunday till Thursday. Thursday night was spent in the O'Hare Hilton for $379 because flights to ALB were all cancelled. United kindly booked me for a 7.30 PM Saturday evening flight :lol: . So Friday I went over to Hertz and rented a car one way from ORD to ALB. Made the drive in 14h arriving home at 12.30 AM Saturday morning.

It might actually be warm enough for me to work in the shop a bit. Rex '48 and me need some bonding time.

I AM READY FOR SPRING.

Oh man, you passed within 2 miles of my house on your way home!! Wish I would have know, we could have had a mini-Cubfest!! I would have even put you up for the night if needed and I would have only charged you $300. :lol: :lol:

How much snow did you come home to??

Only $300 per night awesome. I bet you would have rented me your car for $600. Hertz charged me $715 for a one-way rental. Would have been awesome to have met you for a mini-cubfest. :D

Wow, I hope the company picked up the Tab on the room and car rental.

Forgot to say I came home to a fresh 30" of snow. It's a winter wonderland for sure.

For $600 I would have driven you home and bought you lunch on the way. :lol:

I work for a pretty good company. My manager said just do what you need to do to get home. I'm pretty sure Hertz was less than kind with their rate. They'd not let me rent one-day, they'd not let me use the IBM rate which I use all the time and they would not rent me an SUV one-way. In the end when I got the car - I saw why ----- they wanted me to drive the Dodge Avenger back closer to where it was licensed in the state of MA.
