Next year I am splitting my year quarterly between LA, Tokyo, Marfa, and Amsterdam. I can live without a car in all but Marfa (LA is a bit annoying to not have a car in but is doable).
im trying to figure out my best option. Would anyone in Marfa be willing to share their car with me if I paid part of the mortgage? I don’t think I would need the car a ton. I’m a freelancer so I work from home and I like walking places. I might want to do a few small road trips (NM, etc) while I’m there.
car rental agencies and sites like Turo really add up if you look at renting a car for like 3 Months straight. Is the nearest car rental place Alpine? Could I maybe rent a car at the El Paso airport, return it to alpine, take a taxi back to Marfa, and then just take a taxi to alpine to rent a car anytime I needed one? I don’t mind living without a car day to day in Marfa as I’ll be staying central.
apologies for all the questions! Just trying to start sorting the details of Marfa portion of my year next year as it gets complicated. I’m mostly based/have my “hub” in LA but try to travel a lot and I love Marfa.
