    Thank you so much for sharing your pictures and memories! It was a wonderful time! We missed you on the ride! I sure hope that this will be a tradition for many years to come. We so enjoyed learning more about the Prius and we met such wonderful people!

    Thanks Rodney. I wish this event was a little closer to Oregon. It sure looks like the attendees had a great time !
    Any chance of moving north a little ? Say Santa Rosa ( or even San Jose ). Much more doable for those of us residing in the Pacific N.W.

    Hey there Schroeder Family !!!

    It is because of Great Events like this that bring us together that makes it special !!!

    I wish I could have joined you for the Caravan, but spent Sunday with my Family for Father's Day !!!

    Maybe I'll see you all at TGB4 2.0 ??!!!

    :):):):)

    Rodney

    Rodney

    Hey there Cycledrum !!!

    Well the benefit to the Air Runner Air Suspension system is that it allows me to adjust the height of the vehicle with the touch of a switch !!!

    :):):):)

    Rodney

    Hey there Jaymac !!!

    Maybe for TGB4 2.0 ??!!

    Finding a location that can best accommodate the majority can be quite a task but I am sure the Co-Founders take much into consideration !!!

    Hope to see ya soon !!!

    Ah, air suspension came to mind before asking. Makes sense. Have to go over speed bumps sometimes. Very unique Prius you have :)

    Used to live in SoCal until 11 years ago when I moved to SC. Wish I could have been there, but it's a long haul from the east coast! Maybe a future TGB4 could be in a more central location?
