My profile uses my middle name since I'm signed in using my Google account. My first name is Kathryn and that's what is on my license.
I currently own a beat-up 2004 Chevy Cavalier, I lovingly refer to as, "Betty." She is best friends with my boyfriend's 2005 Nissan Altima who has been named, "Veronica." Bonus points if you know who these names are referring to.
I love driving and taking road trips. However, Betty was owned by two musicians before I bought her and while she's reliable and gets me from point A to point B, which she helps me do for my work as a mobile massage therapist, I wouldn't feel comfortable driving her for hours on end because I worry endurance might not be her strongest trait in her old age.
A few examples of my road trip experiences include:
July 2018, I drove around Arizona going from Benson, AZ, to Sierra Vista, AZ, then Safford, AZ and finished in Clifton, AZ before heading back to the pHoenix area.
In August 2018 my best friend and I drove to D.C. People think we're crazy because we drove straight through for 38 hours.
Christmas 2018 I drove 12 hours in one shot to see my family in Folsom, CA.
In October 2020, I drove four hours to Clifton, AZ to introduce my boyfriend to my dad. Damn was my boyfriend nervous knowing he was meeting my gunsmith father!
Without Turo, I would not have been able to take those trips and I am so thankful for all the wonderful people who rent out their cars on this site.
