We took a short cab ride to a Hertz where our reserved mid-size
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. 120 through
Yosemite still closed for winter, we hoped to get across the pass on 180. We
stopped for gas and a snack in Modesto but I put the PowerBars
back when I saw they had expired. The toilet, too, was
past its prime.
