Need advice on Storage.
Howdy all. I was going to post this in the ///m forum, but you guys are quicker, and I need a good, informed response that is quick.
I'm starting a new job this week. Unfortunately, this means I am training for 6.5 weeks. The unfortunate part comes in in that it would benefit me financially (and chronologically) to take the train on a daily basis for the 6.5 weeks.
Now, the problem is that I do not want my car to sit out on the street (where I park) unused for 6.5 weeks. There is the danger it will be broken into, towed, ticketed, and all that jazz.
The potential solution: To drive the car to my gf's parents' house (I do not trust my parents) and keep it there, unused, for 6.5 weeks. Recently, due to a month long fixup, my car's battery died (got it back at the beginning of february) putting some strain on the alternator. So I am reluctant to let it sit for an extended period of time.
Another potential solution: I have places to go that can keep me driving this weekend, and the next two weekends. That will put my car through a tiny bit of mileage - maybe 300 miles total in three weeks (I used to drive 400 weekly). Then I can drive it to my gf's parents' and have it sit there for about 3-4 weeks; something a bit more bearable.
Any tips, suggestions for "long-term" storage? Should I just suck it up and keep it at my gf's parents' for 6.5 weeks, or should I keep it around to drive for the next few weekends and then leave it?
I appreciate your help. Thanks guys.
