"But what about the tree?" Asks JohnB (among others).
Did we 'drive thru' it? Well, no, actually.
Had we snaked up Hwy 1 from Mendocino all windswept and glamorous in something low and impractical with the top down, it would have happened. As it was, due to a mismatch of expectation with Hertz over what constitutes 'medium sized' we were pretty lucky not to have been driving a tank.
The robust vehicle we eventually ended up with served our purpose very well, but unfortunately (on Driving Day 2 anyway) there was no way it was fitting through that trunk.
We stood around for a bit watching everyone else drive thru (or not), helped out with the photographs and shared the I can't believe I paid $5 to do this, what-the-heck shrug & smile of people who'd driven 100 miles out of their way for the moment. Then we hit the road again.
When we go back we're going in a smaller car.
