We changed our flight from Buffalo to LAX to Buffalo to Sacramento. It made more sense than driving all the way up and down the coast.
The guy selling the car (Ron) was actually selling it for a friend – both of whom were VW nuts.
I did my due diligence to make sure I was not walking into some kind of scam, and using my skills and the almost impossible to avoid internet footprint we all leave, was confident I knew who Ron was and that he was legit.
Ron offered to pick us up at the Sacramento airport, which meant I did not even have to rent a car.
So Sara and I drove my Ford Escape from our home north of Toronto to Buffalo Airport and boarded Southwest Flight #2073 to Sacramento via Phoenix, AZ
