Dare we say, we’re very brave. VERY brave. Braver than all the Disney princes combined.
After splitting a large pepperoni and sausage pizza between the two of us in Yosemite Valley, we dared to drive through a blizzard back to San Francisco. We listened to Lana Del Rey, Chris bawled silently, we drove over black ice, only seeing snow pelt our windshield — it was INVIGORATING, LIFE-THREATENING and altogether eye-opening to see how silent Chris could be in a car (that’s never happened before).
But, let’s back up a bit.
We worked with Getaround for the entirety of this trip, meaning, they reached out to us, asked us if we’d like to partner up, and we were all like:
Ummm, do you have a Jeep? We really want to drive a Jeep. We really want to feel macho… like, Indiana Jones… but boyfriend Indiana Joneses… like the two of us are both Indiana Jones and dating each other. So cool.
And yes, they did have a Jeep (they actually have the largest selection of cars for an instant car rental service we’ve ever seen…).
BUT, SEE?! We drove a Jeep. SO MACHO.
Other than the sludge that is New York City in the winter, we’d never been to the snow with each other. Four and a half years together, the name, “Yummertime,” just doesn’t seem to draw up visions of snowmen and snowball fights, you know?
We rented this exact Jeep (via the Getaround app), grabbed two breakfast sandwiches from Starbucks and drove three and a half hours to Yosemite to “play” in the snow, all to realize, we still don’t really like the snow.
WHERE’S THE BEACH?!
