The loop is in our plans too. Probably 2016 as things look now. No later than 2017. There's quite a world to be explored on the loop and we look forward to it all. I'm sure you've started reading blogs and guides and are already getting excited about it.
Who will be looping with you or will it be alone?
We lived in NC as well before moving to Fort Lauderdale in 2012 upon our retirement or semi-retirement or whatever it is we've done.
