so we're moving

so it looks as thought we'll be picking up and moving from Waterloo, ON, Canada to the Grand Rapids area of Michigan. We'll be moving mid-May.

Going to import the echo...so if you see me around Michigan, you know its me.

Congrats.

In respect to importing the Echo, everything I've read from guys around here has pointed to importing being a nightmare. Is your Echo past the required age for nightmare status, or?

Look me up when you get here!

I've seen a 1st gen HB in GR with Michigan plates, so it shouldn't be impossible. It falls under grey market importing, if I'm not mistaken. http://www.michigan.gov/sos/0,4670,7...823--F,00.html

Wife got a chuckle out of how, in this time of Americans crashing Canadian immigration and real estate sites, you're going the other way.

Congrats Annie!

Nice! I just graduated from GVSU in '14. I'm currently in Grand Haven, but it's only about 30 minutes to GR, less to Allendale.
