One very big highlight for this trip was meeting the people involved.
I arrived a day early because of my time zone differences so I was rested and waiting at the airport for the rest of the troops. And then they came. It was an awesome feeling watching my blog life meet reality! Finally meeting the bloggers I had been online friends with so long and the GMC team we’d been talking to so much lately, it felt like coming home to family.
And then we went to pick up our rides.. at GMC headquarters and OnStar in Detroit Michigan!
The building and programs were so impressive! So you know the cameras had to come out.
We toured the entire facility and received info on what the GMC Yukons and OnStar offered.
I’m totally going to tell you more about both soon, however here’s a quick glimpse.
Everywhere you looked was gorgeous!
We first received info about OnStar. OnStar is a program you load up via a rear view mirror that offers roadside navigation, hands free calling, and so much more.
We also got a peek into the OnStar Command Center where all the action happens. Amazing.
And then we picked up our rides! Oh my gosh… wait till I share some features with you!
We aren’t finished the tour yet, so we’re still learning about everything. Trust me when I say, we are well taken care of in every way and that is due to the features of the Yukon and what OnStar offers. More on this soon!
After our training, we head on down to do a little shopping. The local Habitat for Humanity Metro ReStore opened their doors wide open so we could do a little extra head start shopping for our chosen family’s home.
See, we’re doing this yard sale for several reasons:
To try out the features of the GMC Yukon.
Try out OnStar with a real road trip requiring real travel needs
Take the trial on the road while shopping for a family in need, decorating their brand new home built for them by Habitat for Humanity
The bloggers were chosen to pick out what we thought could enhance a single mom’s home with our finds. Isn’t it amazing what can be done when a group of folks come together with a plan?
Each blogger drew a room to decorate. I’m working on the master bedroom for a lovely single mom. Fun!
Traci scored a great mirror…
and Brooke already had a vision when she landed this adorable shelf.
Actually, everyone brought something out of ReStore!
Even I lucked out! I found a cool lamp and lovely vintage styled dresser for the bedroom.
And then it was time for to head for dinner. And what a delightful drive we had.
Detroit is loaded with historic buildings. It was so hard to leave.
And this was across the road from where we had dinner. What you see is Canada! Isn’t that crazy?
It was nearly like I never left home. 🙂
