    I have a long trip to my niece's wedding this weekend. Hope to see at least one along the way.

    12-12-18, driving north on the 5 Freeway approaching the 55 freeway, was surrounded by two other Primes in adjacent Lanes! Threesomes are SOOOO common!! But owners that I've encountered in this neck of the woods are just not car enthusiasts; they rarely acknowledge my frantic waving, horn, or lights flashing. I guess they'll be perfect candidates for stupid driverless cars, God help us!! I can see it now, a terrifying view of freeways filled with Stupid Useless Vehicles, trucks, and other land barges, with no drivers!! Aaaaaawwwwww, "somebody hep me" !!!

    Alas, massive disappointment. Long trip to wedding and back and no sighting of any Prime at all. Santa may be real to Virginia but I don't think even she believes that Primes exist.

    Don't feel bad, I see more Teslas than all the other plug-ins combined.

    Pulled in behind a very pretty red Prime and followed for a few miles on GA Hwy 140 from Crabapple to Hickory Flat, in suburban Atlanta.

    I think my 2 dogs in the back must have scared them.

    Seeing the other Blue Mag (or several once each; I am not taking license plates) going down the Morongo Grade from Yucca valley yesterday. Still haven't seen or met the driver!

    Also, I just suggested to my CEO that she consider installing charging stations. I think SCE has a generous grant program for health clinics. And among the doctors, we drive a Prime, a Volt, and two Teslas. I also expect more patients will show up drivign plug-ins in coming years, and people tend to park at a health clinic for an hour or two. Perfect situation for charging.

    My only significant experience was at a post office when unbeknownst to me a gentleman came up to me and we had a nice chat in the parking lot. Somehow I can’t seem to make eye contact on the roads though. Lol

    Saw a Red Prime 4 cars ahead of me exiting towards the American Airlines area of Highway 360/183 in Fort Worth. I wonder if it's my previous car since it's been sold from AutoNation Lewisville recently. Hmm

    I saw a blue Prime disabled on the side of Hwy 62 today; the driver was out of the car and on the phone-- I'm not sure there is even cell phone service where he was. I wanted to stop but it was an unsafe area (he couldn't even get his car all the way out of the right lane).

    I hope he got out okay. Anything other than a flat and he probably could have coasted to a safer spot (it was downhill).

    Let's hope that it was as simple as a flat and that he's OK.

    Saw a brand new Red Prime at the Dairy Queen in Frankston Texas on Friday night 3/22! My mom and I had driven her car and as we were leaving I spotted this Prime in the parking lot. I had to circle it to look at the license plate to make sure mine didn't get stolen! LOL
