We get a lot of rentals.
I use them in my work for the diocese. It makes sense as the cost of the rental & gas is less than paying me the federal tax mileage rate – and there’s no wear and tear on our van. Ginger uses rentals when she has business trips – again it saves wear and tear.
I don’t mind trying different vehicles, I’m more concerned with comfort, ergonomics, and gas mileage than prestige. This time though, I think I might have been short-changed. This is supposed to be an intermediate vehicle, seems to be more on the compact side to my eye. And speaking of my eye, I think this is an ugly beast, and to add insult to injury it had a very poor gas mileage too.
The reason for this weekend’s rental was a trip to the Small Church Summit in at Calvary Episcopal Church in Sedalia today, and a visit to one of our churches – St. Stephen’s in Monett tomorrow.
I was back renting on Tuesday as I had a trip to Kansas City for a staff meeting this week. After Saturday’s green ugly bug, even Ginger liked the deep metallic burgundy color of this one.
