    I'll organize it, sure! But it must happen somewhere between my home town and 14 miles away from my home town, or I might need to use some gasoline. Eeeek! Actually, the Chicago suburbs aren't all that far from the exact geographic center of the lower 48 states. How's April? Pretty sure I won't spot another Prime by then, anyway. Some place with a lot of open parking spaces, live music, and... beer!

    I volunteer my little town in Nebraska. The middle for everyone. We have sites to see as well. Oldest court house in the state, Arbor Day started here so lots of trees to see, and a big ball of string.

    That's a mere 6h 6m, 411 mile drive for me.

    I thought the string moved to Kansas?

    Shhh, I'm trying to win them over here. Planning on a bait and switch. Big ball of yarn instead.

    Plastic worm or crank bait? ;)

    Real question is does the Lied Lodge allow us to plug in?

    Wow, you know about the Lied Lodge? I am impressed. No plug in there but I am only 4 blocks from there so all of you can plug in at my place. There is a charge point in the fire station parking lot for public use.

    I remember you mentioned it once here. Good memory eh?:p It made me curious because I thought the name was a typo.

    Instead of a "drive-in", have a "plug-in" !

    I've seen teo on the orad since I bought my blue mag six months ago. Both blue mags.

    One was close to the Catherdal Ciry dealership so it may have been on a test drive.

    One was on Hwy 62 between Palm Springs and Joshua Tree.

    I wish whoever owns it would sign up.

    I just had four Autel MX programmable sensors installed today at Tire Rack in South Bend Indiana. I bought the tool to program them and they installed them and mounted new tires for my summer wheels. After buying the $50 tools you can read your old ones and I cloned the new ones so I can change tires back and forth and keep the TPMS system happy. Trouble is if you have a dead sensor you are out of luck.
    When you start the car it looks for all four sensor ID's and if the pressures are right the light goes out.

    Saw my second today!

    A white one driving West in Yucca Valley this morning. Probably a weekender from LA heading home from Joshua Tree. Was it one of you guys?

    We were in our V so it was pointless to hank and wave.

    I was the only one in Chapel Hill/Carrboro, NC AFAIK for the first 6 months. But lately I've seen two others around town. This is Prius Central (seems like every third car is a Prius), so I've been surprised it took that long. They'd sell a zillion of 'em here if NC dealers could stock them...

    Maybe they bought it from Pauly Toyota in Crystal Lake. That's where I got my Gen 4.
