backerman: Two meerkittens being cute (Default)

I want to hit In-N-Out and the Computer History Museum before heading to the con. The problem is that doesn't seem particularly doable on public transit. I can deal with the trip to the hotel to drop off my luggage, but then it's 90 minutes each way out to Mountain View.

Take a cab? Sounded like a good idea, at least one way, but from downtown to Mountain View would be $50 plus tip. That's not quite London-expensive, but a bit more than Boston.

So... pulled up the Hertz website, and for $60 plus gas I can have a car for the day, including LDW and the at-airport surcharge extortion. Drive to lunch and the museum; return at the downtown Hertz location, conveniently located in none other than the con hotel. Bonus: two hours of my life back. I think we've got a deal.
