    Sorry for reviving the old thread, but it's a slow day at the office and I was just reminiscing about our move and decided to revisit. As we near our the end of our first summer I just wanna say the furnace never got too bad for us. Everyone said it will be like being in the north in the winter; you'll be trapped inside with the a/c because it will be too hot to do anything outside. Well we never let the heat stop us and it honestly never bothered us. We take walks or bike rides nearly every night and short of the 2 weekends we we're visiting Michigan, we have been at the boat EVERY weekend since we got here in March. It's warm, yes. But it's no furnace. Anyone that has considered this move but is scared of the heat, I wouldn't let it stop you. And by the way, after re-reading this...THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of you who followed, subscribed and commented. As I've had a bit of time to get settled in and reflect, the encouragement from this forum played a huge role in us having the confidence to follow our dream. I didn't realize how much so until going back and re-reading. So again, THANKS!!! :thumbsup:

    No need to apologize. It was a great thread that had a lot of members following it. It's great to be reminded that good things still happen to good people.

    Sorry to bring up the old thread, but it's 6:30am and I can't sleep, so was looking at CSR and, after seeing a few Florida posts, decided to to read through this one again and re-read all of your helpful and encouraging posts. Then I just came across this one, which I honestly didn't remember. Might be a little more than a year later, but exactly as stated by Rusty in this quote, I am reading it again with a huge smile on my face comparing things to what we've done, where we've been and what I know now. :) Slightly delayed, our best friends are finally moving down from Michigan as well. I am receiving and docking their boat for them from the hauler this Monday and they will be here a week from today. My is good! (Except for that sunburn peeling on my forehead;)

    Thanks for reposting Captain Rusty's well written epistle. His disclaimer is still oh so true!

    Thanks for reviving this thread! It put a smile on my face as well. Truer words were never been spoken, thanks Capt. Rusty! I have said it takes more than a smooth landing to be a good pilot. I love how those of us here on CSR really take the safety and fun of boating seriously. Very thankful to be a part of this community.
