Irregularly Repeating Appointments

Wahoo Suze asked for advice on managing appointments that repeat at longer length intervals or somewhat irregularly:

I’ve been reading all your awesome tricks for using google calendar to manage life, and using some of them.

I just had to renew my vehicle registration last month, and I’m set for the next 2 years.

But the province is saving money now by not mailing out reminders. I can sign up with the registries office for a reminder email, but it got me thinking.

There are things that need to be renewed every several years, so putting a recurring appointment on a calendar won’t work.

Like, my passport is good for 5 years. My vehicle registration for 2 years. My driver’s license for 7 years.

Do you know of a way to make google calendar remember that for me? Or some other (free) app?
