We are having the time of our lives! These people have welcomed us in and we have made dozens of new friends in just a few days, it is extraordinary. This group has blossomed as a result of an online Newmar motorhome chat forum that I participate in. Three years ago they decided to get together once a year to meet face to face and this year we have joined the group on the shores of Lake Michigan for HOOTS 3.
The group has a few seminars, some social events, a tour of motorhomes, and an in depth meeting with the corporate management team from Newmar.
We also have some free time to tour the beautiful Northern Michigan area. A top down car trip up to Charlevoix gives us the opportunity to photograph this quaint marina community and its unique "Mushroom Houses". On our return trip we had to stop for a true Clark Griswold moment as we jumped out of the car and got a photo with the "Worlds Largest Cherry Pie".
We are looking forward to meeting up again next year for HOOTS 4.
