The End !!

Hey Kids remember us ?
It’s been a while since we have posted & this will be The Final Post for Gettin’ Looped.

This morning we watched our baby sail off with her new owner, Micah Graber.
Micah is a music professor at Toledo University, who has every summer off work.
He plans to make Gettin’ Looped his summer cottage, stationed in Saugatuck Michigan.

It was a wonderful 4 years of ownership, with memories we will never forget.
We loved her & will miss the Gettin’ Looped like we miss our dog Chelsea !

But as everything in life, it’s time to turn the page.
The plan after The Loop always was, and still is – a 1 year motorhome trip to about 40 of 59 National Parks.
This trip will probably occur in 2021CY.

Farewell Gettin’ Looped, we love you !

    1. Greg,
      Send us your blog link when you take off.
      We need to live thru other Loopers now.
      Be aware – Illinois River closed spring of 2020, Lock Maintenance !
      It will affect all 2020 Loopers from our area of the country.
      Search the AGLCA daily forum website for “Illinois River Closure”.

    Did you wipe the tear from the corner of your eye as you watched her sail away?

    1. Brian,
      I remember it, like it was yesterday.
      South Haven was another favorite stop – Old Harbor Village was great.
      Captain Lou’s, Idler Riverboat, & the Mayweather/McGregor fight !
      We met you & Ken/Chris Smyth in South Haven.
