    Expert? Absolutely not, but I have legitimately taken the time to read the actual research, which is far more than you have done.

    And I do have s Biology degree concentrated in Vertebrate Zoology & took several ornithology classes, but hey, your keyboard warrior skills & poor mathematical aptitude gotta' count for something.

    On a normal board, it would already have happened, but we dont really have "modding" here. Can only recall a few non spam advertisement bans ever.

    Nope, it's a juvenile European Starling. The beak turns yellow when it gets some age. I shoot every one of them one I see, it's one of 2 invasive species (House Sparrow) that wrecks havoc on our native bird populations. Nasty things, and really smart too.

    Oh good Lord. Dude, that bird is practically everywhere in the United States; you're not going to eradicate them by "shooting" individuals. So why would you do it?

    There will likely soon be a more guaranteed, and much cheaper, AWD solution for mountain vacation travel.

    LYFT is going after the rental car companies & will soon start car rentals. You get a $20 credit to take a Lyft to & from the renter. I'm sure UBER will soon copy that idea rather than risk being left behind in a new, potential market.

    I will 100% be doing this on future ski vacations rather than hoping I'm provided with AWD or 4WD.

    ive had good results with turo. its airbnb for cars essentially so it really depends on the person providing the car, but ive used it at least 5 times and never had an issue. using it in co over xmas. $400 for a nissan rogue awd for a week. rented by what seems to be a company and not a person (many vehicle listings, a company as the user instead of a person, excellent reviews across the board). the best is that i just go to the parking lot, use a lockbox, and pay $20 to get it out of the lot. no rental counter or taxi to off airport locaiton required.

    What happens if there's a mechanical issue with the car (not anybody's fault, say a flat tire or you lock your key in the car)? With regular rental car company, they either come with another key, or another car. And you're on your merry way to resume your vacation.

    What about accidents. Again, you'll get another car if you rent from most "regular" rental company. Does Turo have replacement cars ready to deliver to you?

    Also, do you take out collision waver or rely on your own policy (which typically covers rental cars)?

    I have AAA, which will tow my car to a garage if my car is disabled. But it won’t give me another car to continue my trip.

    What does Turo’s “Roadside assistances” covers?

    It had also happened once my rental car had one of its headlight burned out. I got another car at the nearest agency (different from the one I pick up my car).
