Last week was GVSU's spring break. First time I've been able to go down
to my mom's place in FL for anything other than a long weekend in 12 years of
tax seasons. Usually when I fly for a speaking engagement, Mary or Carolyn
runs me to the airport, because they (Carolyn) want my car when I'm gone.
This time I flew down with William on Monday, with Mary and the two high
schoolers coming down on Wednesday.
So instead of paying $12 a day for LT parking, I decided to give the guys Ron
recommended a try (his original email is below).
Worked out great. They've recently moved to a place on Eastern, just
north of 36th street. Mary & the kids drove there on Wednesday
morning, a very nice gal drove them to the airport and dropped them off.
When we got back to the GR airport I had a voicemail message waiting telling me
where in the short term parking to find my car. They must have just
dropped it off, because it cost me $2 to get it out. Couldn't be easier.
They did a great job detailing the car, and I was even able to get my
windshield replaced while it was there. And when I take 5 1/2 days of
long term parking that I didn't have to pay off the bill, the price is even
Ron's right, this was a great idea. Don't be afraid to give it a try.
