I bought a Classic Prius (hybrid-electric, fuel-efficient, super-ultra-low-emission vehicle) back on 9/9/2000 and drove it in Minnesota until I replaced it on 10/23/2003 with an Iconic Prius (which was even cleaner and more efficient).  Then on 5/26/2009, I upgraded to a 2010 Prius (for amazing efficiency).  Following that on 2/29/2012, I got my first plug-in model (pushing MPG significantly higher).  The big upgrade happened 4/01/2017, when I replaced the PHV with a Prime, trading 11 miles of EV driving for 25.  The great driving experience continues, after all that time...

This website is loaded with lots of photos & information about that technological wonder I drive.  The links below highlight recent things I've done, and the  Site Map  provides an illustrated summary of everything else.  Have fun exploring all of it.
