Thanks! This knowledge can be advantageous, but also create havoc in my mind, as I try to decide what all to do.

Have fun putting it all together ,

Thanks. Owning and Escape trailer is a good thing, but it is how it enables you to get you that makes it great.

Thanks. The Mid Atlantic, and many other destinations will be in the works into the future. These purchases might cause a bit of delay to permanent retirement though. I do plan on doing the cork sometime in the future, though seeing how long my list of mods already is, who knows when it all will happen.

Thanks, Donna. It has been in the works for a while now, I just decided to come clean with my intentions.

Jim,
Good to hear you are making your dreams come true. Sometimes it's a little scary taking big jumps a little later in life. I think you are on the right path by right sizing now and setting up for the foreseeable future.
Welcome pad is always out here in Eastern Iowa, not if, but when you come this way. Cold Beer, big campfires, and shoot guns off the porch if you'd like, here in Benton County Iowa. Live the dream, it's only money, you can make more.

Thanks for the offer Dave, I certainly hope to take you up on it some day in the not too distant future.

It actually has been in the works for a while, I just slowly let the cat out of the bag in my siggy. I think it was when I took the 19 off that folks actually took notice.
