My 7-day Avis rental isn’t exorbitant but I’d rather pay less. I hate the idea of shelling out $700 or thereabouts (including gas) for two six-hour drives (Albuquerque to Telluride and back again) with the car just plotzing in a parking lot for six days (Wednesday afternoon, 8.30 to Tuesday morning, 9.5). The 50th annual Telluride Film Festival runs five days this year — starting Thursday, 8.31 and ending on the evening of Monday, 9.4.

Yesterday I thought I’d post an offer on Ride.Guru. What the hell.
