If you’re a computer geek, you stay up late running raids in an online game, hanging out in chat rooms or seeking out the latest reviews on the hot gadgets. What about carseat geeks? Well, okay, we hang out in carseat chat rooms and read all the reviews on kids gear, too. We also drive hours to meet up at nice restaurants where we discuss the merits of the latest products.
Yesterday, we had just such a mini-conference. A half dozen moderators and long time members at the Car-Seat.Org forums got together in Paw Paw, Michigan. While I’m sure the area golfing was great, as the Golf Michigan commercials claim, we chose Paw Paw for another reason. It’s more or less midway between the western suburbs of Detroit and Chicago. Oh, and there was a Play Place!
Despite temperatures in the high 90s in the asphalt parking lot plus sweltering humidity, we managed to oogle some recently released products and try a few in vehicles, too. My wife will be most pleased that I returned with a few less carseats than I brought! I bet the next get together is near Vegas.
