Out of the Blue

Yesterday was doctor day for us, as MrsBlue and I had our annual physicals. I got a clean bill of health, and a couple of my test results were better this year than last, which is fine by me. MrsBlue's testing was also fine except for one value that did not compute at all, to the extent that there seems to have been an error, so they threw out the whole batch of results and are starting over. The good news for her is that we also visited her orthopedist, who told her she would no longer be required to wear a splint for her injured finger, so she has emerged from that without requiring physical therapy, much less surgery.

Wow, we got dumped on last night and it looks like a quite a bit of snow in the next week or two. I'm going to do extended test drives on the Crosstrek and Sportwagen next week so it'll be putting those AWDs to the test. I really wish there was somewhere where I could just rent them for a few days each. I'm definitely leaning more toward the Sportwagen now but the drives will be the true test.


You mean like Enterprise/Budget/Alamo or the 100 other rental companies?

Also, once you go AWD you'll never go back, because you'll hate it if you do.


I've looked at all of them and none rent those specific vehicles. Most only seem to rent domestics by and large. It's weird you'd think they'd be renting what's popular instead.

I'm guessing whatever I'm driving probably won't have snow tires on so that may limit my impression somewhat. I tend to drive for longer more than often so comfort and noise are my big concerns. The Sonata I drive now is fine for city driving but it is not comfortable for road trips after 2 hours plus getting out of it is like, 'Goddamn, I'm sore!' Whereas the Accord I had prior to it was way more comfortable and quiet. Of course getting older may have something to do with that. Which reminds me, I'd still love to drive a Rolls one day as they say they're still the world's most comfortable car.
