Wait, Brian, something doesn't wash here (pun intended). You say in your note that you took the van to Virginia, parked it there, took the Metro into DC everyday, then drove the van back to Wilmington.
It takes 6 or 7 hours to get to Northern Virginia from here. So are you saying that you couldn't take the van out for less than 15 hours without getting it washed when you got back?
What did you do, throw Big Mac wrappers and Diet Coke bottles all over the back seat? Were there big orange Cheetos fingerprints all over the steering wheel?
I think most of us have rented a car in our lifetimes and were able to drive it for a few days, especially by ourselves, and return it as clean as we found it.
If you aren't able to do that spending less than 15 hours in a car, God help us all!
