Rental Car from Enterprise

Aloha Everyone,

My sister gave us a ride to the Enterprise Car Rental near our hotel. J.J. had filled in all rental paperwork online but still it took us nearly 40 minutes to actually get a car, including rental staff washed and cleaned exterior and interior. We also went over any scratches, dents and I took photos of them.

We are renting for 1 months which is $50 per day inclusive of California taxes. J.J. said that the brakes are sensitive.  He is an excellent driver. The car is Chevy Malibu. The first place we drove was to Walmart to purchase some provisions.

Having the rental car occupying Honu’s old stall will help me accept that we’ve entered a next stage of travel adventures.

Aloha -- Cathi

Big News About Honu

Aloha Everyone,

J.J. and I delivered Honu to the Irvine facility of CarMax. The drive took us 48 minutes. We were both silent, each immersed in our own thoughts. Another updated appraisal by the Irvine staff before we completed the paperwork.

I had mixed feeling. We knew eventually things will change but the reality is harder to accept. I have hollow feelings in my stomach. 

We purchased Honu April 2014. After a decade, the era with Honu has come to an end.

Aloha Everyone,

Our friends who has been assisting us in doing interior repair/maintenance work on Honu informed us that we have a written appraisal from a local office of CarMax. Here is a company website that explains how their business operates.

Honu is Under Contract

Aloha Everyone,

Our friend did all the foot work so it took us a matter of an hour to go over the contract and agreed to the terms.

J.J. and I have two days to clear any remaining personal items from Honu.

Aloha -- Cathi
