Maybe your car is older and has a lot of miles on it, but it’s been a dependable and loyal “steed.” You’re not ready to buy a new car or to make monthly car payments. Your car has several more years in it but it doesn’t make sense to put unnecessary miles on it. You don’t want to put anymore wear and tear on it than you have to.
It’s autumn and you’d like to see the changing of the leaves in all their beauty and splendor. There’s a scenic route to the mountains that you’ve dreamed of taking for years, but you’ve always found reasons why you don’t have the time or you’ve put it off until before you know it, the leaves have fallen from the trees and winter has arrived.
You’ve made a decision that this year you’re going to do it. Still, a drive up the mountain would be hard on your little 4-cylinder car and you would find it stressful to drive in the mountains given the number of miles on your car. It might seem like more worry than it’s worth. Maybe you should wait another year.
Don’t put it off again. Why not rent a car? You can see the beautiful autumn leaves; take lots of photos; and do something for yourself that you’ve been putting off for years. Now is the time; seize the moment. Of course, nothing says you can’t plan ahead, look online and find the best deals.
Rent whatever car suits your needs. You may be on a budget and just want to rent the compact size for a day, pack a lunch and go. Maybe you can splurge a little, rent an SUV or another car with a big engine that will easily get up those mountain roads. No matter what kind of car you decide to rent, with a little planning and minimal investment, you can drive a scenic byway up the mountain and see all the majestic beauty that autumn nature has to offer.
The best part of all is that you won’t have a care in the world. The only thing you’ll have to worry about is finding the best possible, most scenic route. You’ll have done something you’ve always wanted to do and feel great for it. Bring your camera and take lots of photos, not that you’ll need them to remember. The beautiful colors will be permanently etched in your mind.
You can plan on making your trip an annual tradition. Each and every year you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the amber, saffron, goldenrod, xanthous, burnt sienna, crimson colors, each year distinguishing the subtle differences a little more, until you can view them as only an aesthete would. In other words, you’ve always wanted to see the gorgeous colors that only nature can create and having the opportunity to see them close up might just bring out the artist in you.
Who knew that something so enriching could be obtained by renting a car? Renting a car isn’t just for the businessman who needs it when he gets off an airplane in the city of his destination. You may not have realized it, but there are endless reasons why renting a car not only makes sense but can simplify and enhance your world. So, the next time you are reluctant to drive your car because of concerns of the toll it will take in terms of mileage and structural integrity of your car, just remember you can rent a car and depending on your needs, time and budget, you can do just about whatever you want.
