We took a short cab ride to a Hertz where our reserved
car awaited us, $365 for two weeks of unlimited mileage. I felt bad
about it but in my environmental calculus train + car = better than jet.
After one wrong turn and a sudden deluge we were on our way south.
Yosemite still closed for winter, we hoped to get across the pass on
stopped for gas and a snack in
but I put the
back when I saw they had expired. The toilet, too, was
past its prime.
