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 !

Hopefully we see you guys in the near future.
Thx for following the trip.
Fast 4 years. Our loop starts June 1st 2020 or sooner.
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.

Thanks for sharing a wonderful chapter in your lives Mike & Jonell. I looked forward to each post.
Did you wipe the tear from the corner of your eye as you watched her sail away?
Thx so much Georgi !
You were also one of our devoted blog followers.
I do regret that of our 36 visitors, we did not have you guys out !
What an adventure you had and shared with all of us. While Gettin’ Looped has a new home the memories you had with her will last a lifetime.
See you at the Regatta (in Scapini’s Vessel) !
I know that hurt your heart mike!!!!!
Yes, it made me sad (and relieved at the same time).
But, your sister was actually more emotional about the boat going bye-bye than I !
Congrats guys! What a journey – thanks for taking us with you!! We feel your bittersweet emotions for sure
You guys were among the special friends we made along the way !
Appreciate all the time you spent following the blog.
Sad day buddy!

Met you in South Haven, MI
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.
