It is Saturday morning, you are lying in bed, looking out the window at fog that comes all the way to your window, what do you do? Well on Saturday we had planned to go hiking on Cougar Mountain, but with fog all the way to the window and so thick that you couldn’t see a single thing, that was off. It was a little bit dangerous. It seemed to be fogged in just about everywhere in Seattle. Friday night it was really foggy as well so it looked like it was going to stick around. Heidi & I just had no idea what to do and were bouncing ideas off each other. I didn’t really want to be cooped up inside the apartment all day so suggested about getting out of town. Neither of us wanted to drive our car though, purely because the truck eats so much gas it isn’t funny and Heidi hates putting unnecessary miles on the Mazda (totally agree with that purpose too). But then what do we do? I had a free day from our Honeymoon with National Car Rental (they gave us a freebie for the hell of it and we never applied it). Well thank you National because we used it! We both agreed a free car rental for the day would be fun and grabbing something sporty from the Executive Line would be fun. If it failed, we could just cancel the reservation on my phone and walk away from it, nothing lost.
So Heidi dropped me at the SeaTac Rental Facility and parked just down the Street at the big park and ride (where we could return later that night to grab Heidi’s car back) and after a while of waiting, the National staff were able to bring around a nice Black/Grey Challenger for us. Now back during our Honeymoon Heidi had told me she wanted to drive a Challenger and that is what I tried to get for her. Unfortunately LAX at the time had none at all in attendance, and they checked everywhere. So unfortunately we had to settle with the 300C (which was a fantastic car anyway). But I was able to deliver the Challenger for her and she loved every minute of it. The car was fun to drive and we had a blast in a nice little two door car for the day (be it in the fog and cold for part of it). We headed off down to the coast south of Aberdeen down towards Long Beach and over the border into Oregon (not to Portland).
We spent more time in the car than out of it at times, but it was still fun anyway. We finished off the day back in Seattle at Federal Way for dinner and then doing the grocery shopping with the Challenger. It was a fun day and many laughs were had. We dropped the Ghost back on Sunday morning before doing some of our morning chores (Heidi was happy she got to drive the truck since she wanted me to return the Challenger) and I was sad to see it go. Maybe when I have my Mid Life crisis I can have a Challenger?
