    I've got good news and bad news.
    The good news is that the Wife and I are moving back to Grand Rapids, Minnesota at the end of the month.
    The bad news is that the nearest hobby shop is in Duluth, 86 miles away.

    But, I HAVE A BASEMENT!!! :D :D :D

    Let the layout building begin!! :D

    Congrats. You may not have a train store nearby but there is always the internet. It is much cheaper.

    ya, I would rather have a basement and no nearby hobby store than having a hobby store nearby and no place to put the layout;)

    Good Luck on your move, Dan!! Did u happen to catch
    the Dateline special on moving scams and ripoffs last night??
    What a nightmare!! :mad: :mad: They say do your homework
    on the moving company before hiring and get a price before

    (or move yourself, groan, groan)

    I'll bet you're gonna have a ball in that basement!!

    Wife's brother who is a OTR trucker is going to move us. We just have to pay him for the use of the trailer. It's a 53' so we should be able to get everything into it :)
    The only down side? We have to do the loading and unloading.:(

    Good luck on your move and don't put your back out moving the furniture.
    I went through all of that back in September and I still haven't finished unpacking all those boxes.:(
    On the bright side, I too aquired a large basement for my new layout, although I still go into a state of shock:eek: every time I see all that space:D.
    Take care and have fun:)
