October 16, 2011, Santa Monica, California
What an impressive gathering today. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 electric vehicles gathered in Santa Monica for one of many
nationwide National Plug In Day events. It certainly looks like a shift has been made and we are all responsible to keep the momentum going.
After several heart-felt speeches on national security and reliance on foreign energy sources, the masses of real, average plug-in vehicle owners
mounted their steeds and galloped down Main Street. Couldn't help laugh at this quiet protest rolling down the street. It was great.
One spectator asked how long it takes to charge and what we do when we are taking a long trip.
I have had months now to come up with the right answer, "I take my Prius."
