I was thinking a easy run like Tahuya, so guys with stock rigs can come out also. Plus, This will have to get thrown together pretty quick. But I like the name!

Awesome. Totally awesome. So I have a question for Jim or anyone here, are you interested in having this make the local (or national) news? I ask because my Aunt Terry used to be an anchor for Komo 4 news and she is friends with a current anchor, Kathie Goertzen. I can email the link to MrJim's story to my Aunt and see where it goes from there.

Just a thought that my mom brought up at dinner tonight.



I would love for NPORA to get some recognition over this. It an amazing inspiring story that is much better than 90% of the stuff you usually see on the news. This is not just a local story of something nice happening. It is a story of people around the globe bound only by good intentions all coming together to do something amazing for someone they do not even know. I am so overwhelmed by it all that I do not even know what to say. Life has not been easy for me in the last few years, but I have always kept going forward knowing that life is a journey of ups and downs. When things are down, you just have to look forward to the great things that are surely ahead of you. The folks at the salvage yard wanted to invite me to come back and show them "mrJim" again when it was officially back on the road. Even they felt proud to be a part of such a huge effort of seeing people at their very best. This is a global undertaking and I can tell you that when you hold this up in comparison to the negative things I have undergone -- this outshines it all by far and I can only feel good about everything overall.

Thank you all for your part in this incredible act of kindness. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I do want to send a special thanks to Scott, Derek, and Shane for being on the road at daybreak to drive all the way up to get the Pathfinder so they could take it back to Derek's to be gone over. I was really happy to have had the opportunity to meet them personally.

Thank you NPORA!!!!!

MrJim

Well, just got done with a good inspection of MrJim. For the most part, he is in pretty good shape. I havet checked brakes and powertrain fluids yet, but probably later this week. Red should be here in a few with some stuff he got at the wrecking yard. Ive got a small list of stuff that he needs and few that he could use, but not necessary. I will post up that list in a little while. Others may be contacted by me or Red about some other stuff.

I will keep everyone updated as we move along.

The "MY News" (thats what they call it) story that I posted a week or so ago at KOMO 4 News can be seen at http://www.komonews....s/53043907.html.

Thank again to everyone at NPORA. I hope you are all having a great weekend, but I bet its not as good as mine has been because of all of this! ;)

This is one of the most beautiful things i've seen on the net. this is how you can tell NPORA is a real community,and not just a forum. i just wish my finances were such that i could have helped with the rebuild.
