Negative, sir. I'm already too popular or wanted, up there. Take your pick, I'm sure either is accurate.

Couple of NBs I haven't seen before at the Skyline lookout, Friday night around 1 or 2 am—anybody here?

Also, a general word of warning: do not go to the 9 lookout after hours, rangers have been busting people like crazy up there.

Well yeah... I mean, what do you expect when you go and hang out on "the most dangerous highway in Northern California", especially at a "known drug cartel drop point". You deserve to go to prison just for being there. Now bend over.

He wasn't lying, Logan. I saw some suspicious characters up there the other day.

Saw my first live BMW i8 today, going the other way on a highway in Sonoma. Before I spotted the roundel, I thought "what is that really ugly supercar?" As in kit car ugly.

I keep seeing swarms of the tiny Smart-Car sized electric BMWs going back and forth between Sebastapol and Rohnert Park...

I keep seeing a few Miatas in S.SJ by my house/work. All hellaflushed out. A white '93 with a light green rollbar, a silver NB1 with the same color rollbar and a white NA with black hardtop that drifted around a corner next to my work. All driven by children.

I was in traffic next to another red NA, piloted by an older man. He said "I didn't know people as young as you drove these cars."

The Miata has really just become the go-to cheap sports car, something my demographic looks for.
