I came across this tale of moving a collection of vintage DEC equipment from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to the west coast, using a Budget truck. Quite a parallel experience, even down to the choice of one overnight stop (Laramie, Wyoming). However, where my problems with Budget were restricted to slow fueling and missing hand trucks at pickup, in this story we have a nightmare of delays and truck breakdowns.

This was too good a story and too much of a warning to not share.
