    For anyone in the Rock Hill/Charlotte area, I'll be at the York County Museum for Rock Hill's Earth Day Birthday celebration. Since this year's theme is "Energy," I decided to get a table on behalf of PriusChat to demonstrate Hybrid Automotive websites and provide information about hybrid cars - mainly the Prius. If anyone is interested in stopping by and chatting, I should be there from 10am-2pm.

    Map of where the heck Rock Hill, South Carolina is - Driving directions to the York County Museum can be found on their homepage

    I commend you for setting up a table at the Earth Day Birthday celebration. It's great that you are showing how Priuschat disseminates incredibly useful information of all kinds to people interested in the Prius. I wish I could join, but I'll be committed this Saturday. I think it's ironic that you chose Rock Hill of all places--- I was there this August on the way down to Florida. I stayed in McConnells with some folks, very nice area. I wish you the best of luck; hopefully you can post some good pictures!

    This should be a fun event...there will be a 2005 Prius onsite for people to look at. Danny is going to be setup inside with Internet access and several laptops for people to peruse websites, including LCD projector to catch people's attention too. Stop by if you're in the's free!
