    Technically, that was a business trip. So no riding until after the rally.

    Also, there may have been some indulgence or dispensation involved at the border, as I was told to not try crossing at Baja.

    And you should still be jealous. It was still excellent.

    Go mobile for a few years 'till shit settles down.

    Then buy if you have to.

    Or two trailers, one up here, the other down there, and rent them out when you are not in them.

    Well, if your real estate has benefited from the massive value jumps in the past 22 years that have happened throughout much of the PNW, you're in a good place. I hope so.

    I won't go into detail much, but this property has a limited use aspect. Grandfathered in the city zoning as a machine shop, and must remain in that capacity.
    What things I need to move all weigh tons each, this ain't just 'pack yer dishes and roll down the road'. Wanna buy a horizontal boring mill?

    Screw moving that heavy stuff...https://www.mvriggingcrating.com/rigging

    Don't know the above guys, but last time I moved my shop I think it was close to grand to have a rigging company move the 10 big heavy items, but was money well spent.

    Oh!,Hey Scott,,I'll for sure need to hire some movers at some point. even the little stuff needs a forklift at least. I have an old Mobilift "Mighty Midget" that I can load pallets with, after it is resurrected, hasn't been run in years.
    Al, don't know about donating, but I for sure will sell for a very low price. Anyone buying anything will be responsible for moving it. Most of this old equipment ain't worth a whole lot to anyone but an old timer,,,at least the steam up guys might have someone old enuff to know how to run them.

    A turn key shop has a lot of appeal to the right person or persons.
    Just get rid of the dead wood if you have any and leave it all in place.
    Feature it as working hobby shop.
    A lot of us don't have room at home for a machine shop or use for it on a daily use, but it sure is nice to have access to a shop.
    Get some more buds to make club dues to flip your bills.
    Then stay put and manage it, as in point fingers.

    Evicted, eh.
    Hope you have some one advising you on ways to avoid giving any of your hard earned money to the tax man. Are you listening?
    Better!

    Wow, you have to move everything out? :eekers I hope they're paying a lot! If ever there is a year to sell, this is it, so good on you! So, like Scott says, get someone else to remove the equipment. Keep all the receipts and use it to write off against your big tax bill. How much time to close? You might have to donate a bunch of the stuff, if you're in a hurry. But then, I'm terrible at selling stuff. Hmmm, there's a tax write-off in donations, too, but who takes that kind of equipment for donation, I wonder.

    I know some of the people at Antique Powerland. I just reached out to them for a contact person. They may or may not have any interest in the machines. I know they already have a fair collection already.

    WOW!,,looking at a possible camp trailer rental for a short time (couple/3 months)
    They want more $$ per night than some motel rooms! :eek7

    I am presently awaiting formal paperwork to begin "the eviction of peterman" process and I'm thinking I'll need a place to hide while I'm moving and my new shop is being built, but,,,,WOW! :becca.

    If you have the space and don't need to move a lot it would be much better to buy an old 5th wheel to live in.

    ^^Have you got one for sale cheap? internet prices to buy are extreme,,build my shop or buy a 5th wheel? can find the spot to park it, don't intend to move it, just live in it when I am on the jobsite until the construction is completed.
    Anybody got a sawmill for sale? woodmizer or better.

    How about a 38ft Class A diesel RV for $28k? These are pretty decent rigs.
