I am NOT a penny pincher.
I have no debt.
I like quality
In an effort to be a “team player” my transportation expectations have changed dramatically. For many years getting from the plane to the rental car and on the road has been SIMPLE. The cars have been new. And I drive with a smile.
The last two weeks have been dramatically different. Here is an accurate comparison
National Car Rental: Hertz:
A wait for a shuttle No wait
A long wait at the counter No wait
A long wait for a car (one hour)
Everything in reverse when returning car Drop car in walking distance of Delta
Shuttle back to airport
Why the story? I have ordered the Nikon 600mm F/4 VR lens. It’s the Hertz Gold card lens. Every review talks about it’s incredible tack sharp focus. Nano coated glass. Ultra quiet and fast focusing. The ‘king” for wildlife photography. No cutting corners or shuttle busses here. It’s the best of the best. I hope the wait is not a year or more. It’s very hard lens to get. September I will be walking the woods in yellowstone. I hope to see the lens at the end of the trees before then.
