Moving to the country
« on: February 19, 2018, 08:10:54 PM »
Hi Guys,
Just want to let you all know after two year of looking for a house I finally found one. It is about 35 miles of I-5, mid Oregon, with just over an acre with water front. All I need now is a shop so I can get out of the two warehouses I lease. So, in the coming weeks I will be selling some of my prime extra parts that I have collected over the years. I'm also interested if someone wants to buy my huge lot of armor bolts. I've made some good money selling them but don't have the room anymore. Again, I need to build a shop. I will miss the MVPA convention this year and will miss seeing you guys but the future is bright for going to future conventions.

Congratulations Steve! Did the guy finally come around or is it a different place than the one we spoke about the other day?

Awesome Steve! I'm on the 3 year plan to achieve the same goal. The 2 car garage needs to go away.
Will be PMing you with a bolt order if that helps take the load off a little.

My guess is someone who he lent space to so he could rebuild his HT.  :o

Congrats Steve!

Thanks guys for the kind comments. I hope to be posting a mother load of parts tomorrow evening that is if the hosting sit is cooperative. I fond some stuff I didn't even know I had. I did hear some rumors of a guy in my area that has small tractors, scrapers and a crane to boot. I will have to get permission from his boss though.

Congrats on achieving your goal. I did the same thing in 2001. Now the city has grown up around me and it looks like I'll have to do it again. I really want to leave FL just need to figure out where to go.

Congrats Steve,
It's great when your dreams start coming together!  More room means more HMV's?
