On June 17th, 2011 I started my 2011 summer tour. My wife drove me up to Yreka where I picked up the Hertz rental. I had requested a Corolla but was given a Mazda M3 instead. This turned out to be fortuitous because I could load the whole Rivendell into the car without removing any wheels! The rear seats fold down completely flat and create a rear cargo area bigger than my Rav4 - at least in length.
