Rental Car - we should have enough transportation but,
Enterprise, Avis and Hertz (online reservations) will bring a car to the airport if you want a rental.  You can hand the keys to the FBO on Sunday and it should all work out.  FBO suggests Enterprise because they have a "contract" with them (no discount that I can find though).
