    Default get/take

    I wonder if there is any difference between (1) and (2).
    1. Let's get a taxi. It's too far to walk home from here.
    2. Let's take a taxi. It's too far to walk home from here.

    Thank you in advance.

    In that context, they both mean, to carry. The taxi will carry us from here to there.

    "take" means, to carry, whereas "get" means to obtain and carry.
