An Ongoing Debate: What's Your Opinion?

We are packing up 8 trunks to fly with us to Scotland. The dimensions of the trunks are 31x17x13. We will fly into Edinburgh and Angus, the pastor of the church we will be working with, is kindly picking us up to make the 4.5 hour drive up to Dornoch. If you are familiar with European cars, you'll know they are all VERY SMALL. Last time we were in Scotland, we saw one pick-up truck and were astounded: it looked huge compared to the normal vehicle. We even saw a three wheeled car, and it wasn't abnormal to the locals. Europe is not an SUV and mini-van dominated society.

Seven of our Eight trunks, with Owen for size reference.

The debate: I think that there is no way our 8 trunks will fit in the car Angus will be picking us up in. Even though they have purchased a new larger car since we've been there (we don't know the exact size), I still don't think it will work. James is convinced it will.

I envision us renting a second car, not a huge deal, just easier if we are prepared for it.

Let me know what you think, and stay tuned for the results as soon as we get internet access in Scotland.

Better to rent a car and not need it than to need it and not be able to get one at the last minute.

That's my 2 cents (I was going to do a "cents" symbol, but there wasn't one on the keyboard...hmmmm never noticed that before, okay, okay, I really have too much time on my hand)

I think the only way they'll fit is if you strap James to the roof.
