Hi all. I hope this is okay to post here - not sure how many people we have on this list now. This is Mera Colling (as you probably noticed by the email address.) One of my goals was to get a small, fuel-efficient car and last winter the process was speeded up when my van was totalled. (It was parked at the time, no injuries, I guess the universe wanted me to get a smaller car right away.) Now that I have one, about once per month I need more butt-spots than my car can hold. I can take three passengers in my car comfortably, or four if the three in the backseat are comfortable with physical contact. About once or rarely twice per month on a Sunday or Saturday afternoon, I transport a bunch of teenage boys to a mentoring group that meets in various places in the twin cities, and this is when I wish I had a little more room because there are five guys so if they all go I can't squeeze them in, or take along either of my younger children which is sometimes convenient. What I'm wondering is if there are people who are interested in renting their minivan on an occasional basis, for a more reasonable price than the auto rental places offer. I have never had a speeding ticket, or any ticket for that matter, and the two accidents I've had were the one above (when the vehicle was parked) and a second one when a deer ran into my drivers side door in South Dakota - so overall I'm a good, safe driver. I also generally will not drive on icy roads if I can help it at all, and would not drive your vehicle on ice either. My kids want me to get a minivan again, but at this point paying for the second vehicle and insurance just to use it one day per month seems silly. I am willing to ay cash for the privilege, no freebies, because I want it to be a win-win. I can also do community exchange if you are on there and prefer payment that way! I also wondered if others on this list would be interested in using vehicles more efficiently and helping each other out with that from time to time. -Mera.
