Recently, Jason picked up an active duty young man enlisted in the Air Force who was going home on leave - to Traverse City. This was Jason’s longest ride to date. The passenger was not 25 years old yet, and was denied the ability to rent a car. It seems the rental companies are not making it easy to rent a vehicle these days.
He wasn’t even able to walk straight as he came towards the vehicle... That should have been my first clue!
Last spring, I picked up a very inebriated college student from downtown Grand Rapids. He needed to get back to Grand Valley State University student housing in Allendale. When I stopped to pick him up, it took him awhile to find me, and even longer to get into my vehicle.
Recently, I took a very pleasant group of people to a small city by the water. Their final destination was approximately 50 minutes away. I picked them up at the airport. They were here in Michigan to spend the week of July 4th by the water.
