A Week after the actual event and I'm still in awe of all the great things that we did in Detroit. Rouge Factory Tour took us to a working auto factory. This, I loved. We started with a quick Historical Movie about Henry Ford and raise to an auto powerhouse...... Followed by a "Making of the F150" interactive Movie with moving seats, wind and spraying water....next the factory look out. We gazed at the largest Green Roof in the world and learned how Ford was collecting fumes from the paint shop, compressing them into gas that was used to power a portion of the paint shop!!!!... then onto the actual factory floor...... As Beerman and I marvelled at the windshield placing robot, encouraging the kids to "look look, its going to do it again"....they urged us forward with exaggerated faces of extreme boredom...... While we were clearly impressed with the repetitiveness they were clearly hungry and looking forward to having lunch at the Wiener-mobile.
The Henry Ford Museum.......... two of the most notable things that I saw were this...... Wiener-mobile..... and the only existing Dymaxium House....... I want one...... (yes C, I know it's a Hippy Thing. I shall don my Birkenstocks, Macramé and smoke Pachouli.... and I shall live in my round, shiny, windowy house....... : )
