    Thanks. We're hoping so.

    I'll still have a lot of major room issues to deal with - patio doors, coffered ceiling, and the Great Room set-up (with a Gathering Room, Kitchen, and Dining Room, plus the Living Room all in one space ...). But I'll address those in time.

    Hi,

    Treviso Bay is beautiful and is in what we call South Naples. I'm approximately 20+ minutes north at the Greyhawk of the Everglades - https://www.pulte.com/homes/florida/...rglades-209447

    Nice gear...gratz! I have some family in the area, out near Marco Island. Grand Parents moved there in the '60s and some aunts and uncles followed. I have not been there since 1975 but been over to visit my sister in Ocala last year.

    Thanks Randy. Yes, Ocala is well north of us, but Marco Island is a beautiful area - and just down the street per se. It's closer to Treviso Bay (see above) than we're. Though we moved here just 6 years ago, I understand the area has grown immensely from the 70s.

    We probably have nearly 100 or so golf courses in the county with some designed by the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Arthur Hills, Arnold Palmer, and Robert Trent Jones. From what I understand there are more holes per capita here than any other area in the world.

    But it is still a very small quiet town. Marco Island is even smaller - loaded up with a lot of very nice real estate.

    Buddy,

    That's like 6 minutes away.

    We will have to get together soon. Presently, we are still moving in - moved two weeks ago from downtown near the Mall. When we get everything ready - and Mike delivers my system - we will need to meet!
