Default Count Down Is On!

Well its just 4 days days until Terry and I will be flying into Miami to pick up the 83 PT40 that we bought and start the 875 mile trip back to Decatur Al. We are excited but a little nervous. I know the coach has a good history but I'm sure it will still be an adventure. We both took a week off from work so we won't be rushed. I will post the good the bad and the ugly, hopefully not to much of the ugly.

Don't know if you are planning on going across Alligator Ally and up the west side of the state or heading up 95 and crossing around the middle of the state. If the latter you can cut thru Deland as part of your trip. You are welcome to stop if you have the time. Easy to get to 75 by Ocala.

We just might do that. The diesel mechanic that I used when I had my trucking business has his shop in Deland. Hopefully I won't need him.

Its Ultra Truck and Trailer Repair. The owner and mechanic name is Ted. Address is 1673 N Spring Garden Ave, Deland, FL. He works on big trucks and I've seen coaches in there from time to time. If you do talk to him tell him I sent you.

Thanks Al, I know were stopping in Okeechobee, that's where Terry's parents live and probably in Sanford because we have a daughter and son-in-law there. After that we haven't made any plans.

Yes I know Ted - He did some work on my coach when I first got it - compressor hoses - alternator belts - air dryer etc. I have referred others to him.
BTW I live off S. Spring Garden

If your first stop is in Okeechobee, won't you be going north on Hwy 27? I posted in the first thread on this coach that I live in Broward county (Ft Laud) and could provide some logistic support to anyone coming to Miami to buy this one. Unfortunately, this is my Saturday to work. I'm sure the owners are picking you up at MIA and getting you set to go at least out of Dade County, but if anything goes wrong, I'll do whatever I can to help.
