Response to My November 2001 trip
Great effort Steve! It is interesting to check out the auto rental agencies' claims and nothing does it like a highpointing trip. On our outing we made a side trip in the middle of a rainy Louisiana night near the LA highpoint. We wanted to visit the shoot-out site of Bonny and Clyde which is in the vicinity of the hp. Turns out we were driving a bit (actually a way bit) too fast and came around a corner only to find our big ol' Lincoln rental car airborne after hitting some terrible, unseen train tracks. We tore some big (but apparently unessential) module off the bottom of the car, bent an alloy wheel, etc. But, a call to the rental agency (Hertz, I believe) caused them to have another copy waiting at the next, big-city airport. I'm surprised the rental agencies don't have a watch-list of highpointers at their desks.
