The hardest part of full-timing for me would be getting rid of all my tools and machines. I have a workshop in my backyard where I work on my vehicles and build stuff out of wood: bookshelves, stereo cabinets, etc. I'll take a look at Sundance 1.

Is Grand Ledge in the Lansing area? I graduated from MSU and it sounds familiar. Do you ever get to this neck of the woods? It might be fun to get a cup of coffee and swap stories.

That's a pretty hard thing to do, we have our toys to work with and most of it has to go, or be put in storage when we become full timers. When we were gone from here for 6 months this year (Nov to May 25) we didn't miss a thing that was here at home. but when we got home last week we found that all the weeds found out they could grow at will and get away with it.. Wow!! Neighbor had cut my lawn 3 times before we got home.
Full timing would eliminate all that hassle.

Grand Ledge is on M-43 just west of Lansing, it's called Saginaw Hwy. and becomes M-43 as you come West out of Grand Ledge.

We probably won't get to GR this year unless we need some work on the 5er, because I take it to American RV at Camping World there on 76th street.. think that's what it's called, just off 131. I do go there in Oct for wheel packing and rig check before we start our 2,200 mile trip to AZ.
Have you given the Goshen Rally any thought? It's Aug 4th -10th in Goshen IN. It's the FROG rally. (Forest River Owners Group) We'll be there. Check the Rally threads on here to see it all.
It would be nice to meet you over coffee or something. We'll have to work on that.

It is American RV (Camping World). I'm usually there at least every couple of weeks during the camping season. I had them do my wheel bearings this spring.

I just saw the Goshen rally information yesterday. I don't know if we would be able to make it, maybe for the weekend. My wife has a sister that lives in Elkhart, and we usually camp at the Elkhart Campground when we are down there. Maybe we could 'commute' to the rally for at least some of the events. I'll keep you posted if we are able to get down there. It sounds like a good time. If we happen to get over in your neck of the woods, I'll be sure to give you a shout.

Good, that would be swell. Keep us posted.
