As many readers know, I'm going to be at the University of Chicago in the fall. Driving from Austin is more hassle than it's worth, so I am wondering whether any readers in the Chicago area who might be on leave themselves in the fall, or who have an extra car, would be willing to "rent" me a vehicle for local use. (Because I'll be commuting back and forth at various intervals between Chicago and Austin, I won't even be using a car continuously while there.) If so, please e-mail me. Many thanks.
UPDATE: Someone suggested shipping the car, or getting it driven (try www.autodriveaway.com, which does both), which is what I may end up doing, though for a variety of reasons not worth boring folks with, leaving the car in Austin is preferable.
