Odds & Ends From Detroit

Home sweet home!  I’m back in Texas now and still reveling from all of the excitement of the last couple of days.  I didn’t know whether I should post another blog about my trip or not (you know, me constantly over thinking everything again), but I decided to go ahead and do so because there were a couple of cool little things I didn’t get to show you before.  Plus it would give our trip together a conclusion 🙂

So here we go:

This is how cold it was in Detroit. The sewers were smoking.
image
One of the few decent shots of downtown I was able to snap in between all of the craziness.
image
Someone was nice enough to take this picture. Thank you sir!
image
We didn't get to see any of these dummies crash, but they are still pretty awesome.
image
Tan sufrido! I sent this pic to Anjelica to make her jealous, lol! She didn't find it as amusing as me for some reason.
image
Can I say Ford's World Headquarters were pretty impressive. So many buildings. It's like a city within a city.
image
The company uses natural products like hemp - yes I said hemp - to experiment with sustainable auto parts. But don't go tearing your car apart just yet, lol... most of these products are still prototypes.
image
The Human Occupant Package Simulator (HOPS), one of the most interesting things we got to see at Ford's research labs. They use the same type of CG technology the film industry uses to make movies like Avatar to make decisions about driver saftey and comfort. I wanted to wear those sensors!
image
And finally, everything comes together in simulated experiences like this one. We didn't have time to ride the thing otherwise I'd be in the picture luego, luego!
image
At last, the sad moment came where our Ford Fantasy Camp was over. Everyone on the shuttle was exhausted, but we were very happy for the experience.
Y'all know me, if there is one thing I am, it's "bien codo", jaja! These are the tees I bought Edgar and Anjelica. Seventy five percent off! Anjelica was like "good job babe!"

Thank you to the folks at Ford for making this experience such a wonderful and exciting one for me and all of the other bloggers in Detroit the last three days.  It was really cool hanging out with people from literally every corner of the world!  Para ustedes, I hope I did a decent job of taking you all along for the adventure.  It was very fun sharing this experience with you.

  2. Ladies, thank you all for the comments and for coming along virtually with me on this trip! Leslie and Tracy, you’re right… I don’t understand why Anjelica didn’t appreciate that picture of me in the bed 🙂
