Up at 5am, taxi at 6am, at the gate at 7am, boarded at 8am, arrived at LAX at 11:15 am, as advertised.
Shuttled to Avis, where I picked up the car I booked through rentalcar.com the night before. Not the Ford Focus I requested, but its "equivalent": a copper-coloured Ford Veruca (or some such name) with Nevada plates.
Up Sepulveda, a right on Pico, then a left on Beverly, eventually to the Sunland foothills. Ruscha to Sultan to Sergio Leone.
