Economy Car: Hummer!

I checked my name on the "Blue Chip" list at the Thrifty Car Rentals (Denver Airport), and it directed me to stall T21. There sat my "economy" car, a Hummer, for tooling around Boulder, Colorado....

One observation, this H3 baby drinks gasoline. It is kind of fun to drive, though. And I figure with all the miles we're putting on the Prius, maybe a Hummer rental isn't so bad, after all. Well, the rental is economy, even if the gas consumption isn't. I personally apologize to Boulder for my outsize carbon footprint for March 4, 5, and 6.
