I finished porting the software for my robot from the OOPic to PICBasic Pro. I am happy with the improved speed of the code. I had a problem with the ADCin command, so I had to do it manually. I feel this was probably a good thing as it forced me to deal directly with the PIC registers and read the datasheet.
Next I need to build a better chassis. The current one was just for testing and is held together with double sided tape and velcro.

My most recent robot is controlled by an OOPIC II and will wander around my house trying not to get stuck. He has three front mounted sharp range finders, and two front bump sensors.
I would consider it a good starting point for me. I have recently started learning to program with PICBasic Pro. I am working on porting the software from the OOPIC to a PIC 16F874 for practice.
