Looking ahead, I've discussed the possibility with my parents of going out to a few days early, by myself. My only worries are, how on earth could i get around. At 18, I'm not likely to get a rental car. The exception to age limits though, "Military or Government personnel on official orders renting at government rates may rent at 18 years of age," doubtful that would apply to me before I day. Is there public transportation in colorado springs? I'll be flying into colo. springs, likely, so i can get a taxi to my hotel. any other way to get around? then again, maybe I'll just run everywhere... Or: anyone have an experience like this?
