Re: 1979 International...
I wish I was a drinker cause I could then chalk this up to a bad stooper. But the reality is I jumped in with both feet... into quicksand without fully looking where I was jumping. Fortunately for me, my name is not on this title yet. Tomorrow (Tuesday) I will send overnight the title to the towing company so they will have it Wednesday. Once I track they have it, I will notify the Pastor and he will mail both checks: 1 to me and 1 to the towing company. If there were more funds available, I would have driven back the 150 miles to where it is, have it bailed out and towed (30 miles) into the Walmart parking lot next to the auto parts store and go to town with it. The reality of it is I have been out of work most of 2008. The wife has been the only one employed. Thats why the tax refund check was used. It wasn't part of any monies planned to move with and is the other reason I was going to use it as a moving truck as its first venture. And once we get moved back to Florida, I can restart my lawn maintenance company while working a part time job somewhere. Once I am bringing in some income, I will come back for the wife here in Roanoke. That way somebody is working. We are going to relocate her into a less expensive residence here since out lease is up (we pay $1100 a month now for rent) in May.
Both of our minds have been going in many directions since the other day. We have finally agreed between us to send the title, cut our losses, finish up our (1970 Shasta 17') travel trailer and I will head to Fla. with that to live in a camp ground until I get settled there. Will have to wait for the Pastors check to clear and use that to finish up the camper. We both said that if the money is there before the final move of her to Fla, maybe we could find another bus (have it checked out professionally) and use it still. If not, we will wait until after the final move and look then. Either way, we both don't want to give up on this bus project. Its going to be a rough year with me in Fla. and her in Roanoke but with visits, we need to do what we need to do.
You guys are like me in so many ways. If the bus was stolen or in a major wreck (not my fault) and you offered me funds, I probably would have accepted them (and in most cases if I was working donated to others myself) but this was my fault.
