If you were going to rent a car that'd comfortably hold 4 adults, 2 toddlers, and all associated luggage for those people, would you rent a big honker SUV or a mini-van?
More importantly, why don't I know anyone with a mini-van I can trade with for a weekend? I can't believe how expensive those things are to rent for a weekend, man. I need to make friends with more people who have a ton of kids. Because if you can't take advantage of your friends, who CAN you take advantage of?
Maybe I could borrow my stepdad's extended-cab truck, put the kids in the back, and put my friends in the truck bed. It's only a 3-hour ride to New Orleans. Plus, they're Yankees. They need the full Southern experience.
