  1. Snohomish county in Washington is apparently a haven for car thieves.  

     

    Now my 1988 Pathfinder has been stolen, partially stripped and damaged.  I got it back, but it was no longer drivable. The radiator was blown apart and a bunch of wiring was torn out of engine compartment.  I had insurance coverage through state farm, but they are doing all they can to get out of paying for the claim.  They sent Kim Robinson to talk with me about the claim this week, but it was really a 2 hour interrogation and not at all intended to resolve the claim.   I was insuring a lot through State Farm until that meeting.  My monthly premiums were over $400 for my Carver Yacht, 2006 Truck, the Pathfinder, and renters insurance.  Now everything has been moved to Progressive and Metro Mile Insurance companies.  

     

    She asked me stuff like how long I worked for my employer, why I chose to not insure some of my vehicles for periods of time. Why I owned some vehicles that I didnt drive daily. Essentially, she was convinced I am trying to do something shady and she is on a fishing expedition to find out what exactly.

      Damn Jim, sort to hear... again!  :(Maybe on the next one.. and any current vehicles... invest in a full featured alarm. Along with GPS Tracking. Trust me it's worth it, though I doubt I need to justify it, too you, now.

      This is awful news! Can't believe you got this kind of luck again, sucks big time about insurance trying to screw you over too. Good luck with the situation, at least this time the rig was found quickly and there's some degree of resolution.

  2. Hi all, i am happy to see NPORA still powering on 17 years after its inception and I would love to go to this event, but I am in the middle of a huge move this month and I most likely won’t make it. I won’t say there is zero chance, but the odds aren’t good. I’m doing moving sales every weekend and packing daily. If I don’t make it, have a great time and post lots of videos! MrJim member # 001
  3. I am so saddened to have learned that Mike Conard (Mr Pickles) passed away yesterday from liver failure. It is such a shock. Those of you who knew Mike know how great of a guy he was. He always had a smile on his face and never had a bad word to say about anyone. This is such a terrible loss. He leaves a little boy and his wife Lyndsey behind and my heart goes out to them. It is truly a great loss to NPORA and the rest of the world too.
  4. I wouldn't need help... I went looking for blood the first day I found the truck. Ask Steve Quigley. I think I made him nervous. I searched every inch of the abandoned drug house in the dark looking for the guy.
  5. It was very sad for me. It felt like I was going to retrieve the body of a dead friend to bring it home to be laid to rest. There was a lot of history in that rig. I am glad to be able to move on now though and the loser who stole it is still in jail for various crap. I'm sure that loser will always be in and out of jail. Moron. I have lots of pics on my Facebook page www.facebook.com/anacortesjim of my 88 Pathfinder and my 78 Ford F250 if anyone is curious.
  6. I'm sure you're right. I don't care though. It's very much worth it.
  7. Damned Tweakers is right. I was so angry about how it was handled. I wanted to just beat the a hole down myself, but he is still in jail for a variety of other crap. Loser... I needed the closure though. Not knowing where it vanished to was really annoying too. It hurt to see what they did to it, but now I know and I can move forward. The 88 that I built to replace it is a little bad@ss and I like it. The 78' F250 is a lot of fun. I'm sure it probably gets 7 or 8 mpg, but I don't even care. It is a powerful machine that looks pretty sexy and always gets positive feedback where ever I go.
  8. Hi all, I just wanted to give you an update on things. One of our own NPORA members Steve Quigley spotted what was left of my 94 MrJim Pathfinder 2 years after stolen sitting in a meth head's house in field beside the house. I have never seen a vehicle so stripped. The cops didn't charge him with anything, because he was already in jail for assaulting a woman by hitting her in the head with a hammer. Just injustice in this world. After sitting in my garage for a year, I finally signed it over to Steve this past week and I took it to him on a tow dolly this past Monday. It was a year and a day coincidentally after it was found. It still has Billstein shocks all around, body panels, body lift, calmini torsion bars, taillights, etc.that he can use in his own Pathy. I know he wants to create some Jeep style cut down doors for the trails. There are pics on the NPORA Facebook page if you want to see. The 88 Pathfinder I bought 6 months before recovering the 94, is doing very well and it it looking great still. I haven't been on the trails as often as I'd like this past year. Too many other projects. I bought a beautiful 1978 4x4 black Ford Highboy F-250 that has kept me really busy since I got it. Overall it was in great shape, but my goal is to restore it to perfection. It has Flowmaster 3" dual exhaust, Big block 460 cu in, Edelbrock intake, Holley double pumper 750 carb, and a full race cam. I have no words to describe the beautiful loping rumble this bad boy makes when you fire it up. Love it!
  9. I got tied up in Oregon for work, so I'm not gonna make it either.
  10. I think I'd like to join you with my friend Joe in his built Wrangler. I want to take my 78 F250 this time so I can play a bit with it.
  11. Download an app called Row52. It will lead you to the rigs you want.
  12. Hey guys, I have been posting on the Facebook page asking for others to go to Tahuya on March 11. I have a friend with a Rubicon Wrangler who wants to go and I'm gonna actually take my F-250 that day to play a bit in it. My Pathfinder is slightly down at the moment for a other tie rod issue. Not a big deal, but it's been either too rainy, 30 degrees, and/or snowing lately making it difficult to work on.
  13. I wish I could. My Pathfinder is down as I wait for better weather to finish some front end work I started. I just bought a sweet 78 F250 4x4 beast that I would really love to get off-road to play with, but like you said Eibe is certainly not full size friendly. I do live that place though.
