    We just got the news this evening. Details to follow as they become available.
    It might have taken longer than expected but as long as it lead to a great location it is worth the patience.

    Re: Career Change in Progress

    Early in this thread I promised to provide gym location info once a lease was signed. To fulfill that promise I am providing this link to our newly established Port Orange Anytime Fitness Facebook page. The address and phone number are there and gym details will be posted on an ongoing basis.

    Expediters who are interested in our progress and in the gym itself are invited to like this Facebook page or sign up for email notifications (address given on the Facebook page).

    This is an expediting forum. Because it is, I prefer to not talk much about the gym here. Now that the Facebook page is up, gym chatter can happen there.

    Diane and I are home for Christmas now. Depending on developments with the gym, we may head down there to focus 100% on it, or we may yet haul some freight to generate cash. The gym will be open in two to three months and our truck will be sold sometime after that.

    The new owner of this truck is of course free to chart his or her own course, but I think the way to make the best money with this truck is to buy it at a nice, used-truck price, let the truck pay for itself in a fairly short time, run it for the next several hundred thousand miles that the truck has left in it, and then build a new truck while taking the sleeper off the old truck with you.

    That 132" ARI sleeper has been one of the best things on the truck over the years and it is in excellent condition today. It would cost at least $70,000 to build that sleeper today. By putting this used sleeper on a new truck, you could save that much money when your new truck time comes.

    Congrats Phil. Since Port Orange is between our place in Lake City and Cocoa where all of our relatives live I'll be sure to stop in and see it.

    How much you looking to get out of your truck if you don't have a buyer for it?

    DO not agree on a price just yet.
    2 rezones:
    *CARB already announced they are considering allowing a 5,000 mil a year trip permit, & allowing that trip permit for 5 years instead of the current 1,000 mi. for 2 years.
    ** OOIDA filed a lawsuit against this CARB rule, claiming the CARB rule violate commerce laws.
    the suit was filed in a Sacramento FEDERAL court- which mean the court have the authority to delay implantation of the state rule.
    your truck just might worth a whole lot more then previously expected.

    Re: Career Change in Progress

    Moose, the trip permit is to allow trucks that do 5000 TOTAL miles per year to not update.
    Farm trucks, antiques, etc.

    Unless they've come out with something new.

    I wonder what took OOIDA so long..
    Nothing like waiting until the last minute .

    While several people have expressed interest, we do not have a buyer yet as it is too early to sell. We want to get the club up and running first and then sell the truck. That will take 2 to 3 months at least. Price-wise, we of course want to get the best price that the market will bear. All we can do at this point is wait to see what the asking price will be in the future. As Moose correctly points out a number of factors are in play.
