Northern Michigan Pick of the Week - January 2000 - The 1st Pick of the year 2000! Congratulations on having a page selected as the latest Northern Michigan Site of the Week.
They say that on the Internet, you can find a page about anything. Looking at our first pick of 2000, you would have to agree with them. It's a very long page loaded with photos from Northern Michigan's strangest winter race (you may want to visit your outhouse while it loads). Forget skis, snowmobiles, snowboards and the like. In Trenary (located 19 miles north of Gladstone in the UP), they're racing outhouses! The site was prepared by (no joke) "John", who also operates the Outhouse Tour. Resisting the urge to make any more outhouse cracks, we'll just tell you to...
Computer Credible Magazine The Outhouses of America Tour made one of the Internet Hot Spots March 1999 picks. Each issue, HotSpots takes a look at Internet sites that are attracting visitors by the millions. Here is what it said about the Outhouses of America Tour...
The Outhouses of America Tour provides us a little comic relief in our browsing. This site shows pictures from the annual outhouse races from Trenary, Michigan. Dozens of outhouses are shown (color photos). From the Canadian poop deck, to the flower potty, you’ll be amazed by the colorful outhouses. Some, like the telephone booth outhouse, seemed impractical, while others, like the scratch ‘n’ sniff outhouse, were simply unbelievable. Like the site says, if you’re in a hurry to go, select the outhouse of your choice.
The Outhouses of America Tour was featured in the Spring 1998 edition of the magazine Country Collectibles on Page 40. Look for a copy at your favorite book store, newstand or your local public library.

"Mac's Picks of the Week" is a labor of love; a page which recommends sites I have found after searching the net for interesting, useful, and just plain fun sites to visit. It is published each Wednesday morning (New Zealand time, which is GMT plus 12 hours). Your site is featured the week of January 7, 1998.

Did you know that "Outhouses Are In?" On page 38 you can enter the strange world of outhouse collectors and get ideas on starting a collection of your own. The Outhouses of America Tour is mentioned on page 40.
Yahoo!'s Pick of the Week (3-10-97)Okay, here's the poop on the next site: There have been plenty of movements in architecture, but none so utilitarian as the outhouse. Number one, it's practical. Number two, it's something everyone can relate to. So, we offer you Outhouses of America. Frankly, we're flushed with excitement. While perusing photographs, commentary, trivia, and folklore, we learned that there is a two story outhouse in Oran, Iowa - a daring experiment that previously we hadn't been privy to.
USA Today! USA Today actually picked my site for one of it's awards. Take a quick visit to their site to check out other winners.

"Bob's Groovy Napkin Award" for extreme grooviness in a web page.
