    I'm tempted to drive up there, but I don't think I'll do the drive this time around. I'm waiting for the brewers game for my next trip up for a hybrid meeting.

    Hi Tom:

    ___Although I could not say if I will be off or not, if I am, I would be game. I missed the last Milwaukee meet so I feel we kind of owe it to the Madisonite’s at least ;)

    ___Good Luck

    Hi All:

    ___Another excellent meet to get together with old friends and meet new ones. I hope Justin was taking the meeting minutes because Tom and I arrived about an hour late. Whoops, somebody forgot to set their alarm is all ;)

    ___We had a new Prius owning couple who had a 57 mpg first tank from their brand new Prius II! Another Prius I owner is about to become a Prius II w/ NAVI owner and a third new owner/member was there to help with the details of the Prius II’s inner working’s. Smart young man if I do say so myself! Bradlee and Justin were there of course and Linda of Hybridfest 2006 fame showed up in her brand spanking new Formula Red Insight!

    ___Tom nailed down a 51.8 mpg segment out in his HCH-I while we were averaging darn near 70 mph! Can you tell someone was late? On the way home with a head wind, medium heavy rain, and 50 - 51 degree temps, he nailed down a solid 59.0 mpg as he pulled into my drive. I wish we could at least have have that drive out over again :(

    ___Justin should be along in short order to pass on even more details.

    So your now saying that Tom's HCH I will do over 50 MPH? ;)

    Not Bad at all for going 70 MPH. :)

    Pretty New Insight I think. Red is in.

    I did not see you in your Ball Cap?

    Hi Terry:

    ___We might just have to get you up here for a Group Meet before Hybridfest! I know you would love it is just a good time all around.

    ___As for the ball cap, I was wearing my Powered by Honda hat which was a gift from Billy during Sebring last month. It’s a real nice hat too ;) Tom and I tried to bring you up to date while on our way home but your phone was turned off :(

    ___Good Luck

    Thanks for the updates.
    I was really bummed I could not make it, but I spent the morning coaching soccer and then spent the rest of the day installing a sink in Milwaukee. Just got back. Whew!

    Linda, nice looking Insight! Bradlee and Justin, I always love to see the Citrus Insight!

    I'll have to catch up with everyone later.

    Wayne and I had a great time. We missed most of the meeting because I woke up late, but we talked with Bradlee and others after the meeting for a good long time.
