When I come to Portland, I can usually get around by using TriMet and an occasional loaner ride from my Son's Mother. This time around, I needed to be in Lake Oswego for a Parent-Teachers Conference on Friday, attend a Memorial Service for the Father of one of my Son's friends at Portland Community College on Sunday, and otherwise spend some quality time with the Kid, all while schlepping him around on some of his Weekend activities. Hence, a car hire was in order. Do I wish I actually lived here, so I could again be a more integral part of his life? Absolutely.
I got lucky with an advance reservation that cost me slightly less than $40 for 3 days worth of driving (including all the taxes, but not gasoline). I expected and got the full court sales press to buy insurance, upgrade my reservation, pre-pay for gas, blah blah blah. However, I politely declined and soon was on my way with a nice Toyota that didn't feel or drive like an Economy choice. The Weekend was very nice, the car drove like a champ, the return was straightforward, and I'm sure that Dollar and I will meet again.
