One of the best things about Michigan is being surrounded by lakes. For those of you who have never been, it's an incredibly beautiful state with gorgeous bodies of water. I had the opportunity to spend a few weeks out there and met Paul DeLano, his beautiful wife Claire and their kids, Matt, 9, and Audrey, 12. spent some time with them on Baldwin Lake, near Union, Mich.

I'm going to use this story to give you some behind the scenes on PDB works. When someone is going to be traveling, we generally reach out to manufacturers and ask for their top dealers in the area. Once we get the dealer info, we ask them to put us in touch with their most memorable families so we can really experience the lifestyle. So when I knew I was going to be Michigan, I got in touch with Jeff Haradine, president of Wakeside Marine in Elkhart, Ind., to see if he had a family in mind.
