Taking care of and giving MrJim back

Recommended Posts

So, with Jims truck in our hands now, I do not want take very long getting it back together and given back to Jim. As mentioned in other threads, I was think of incorperating a trail run with giving Jim his truck back. Im thinking the weekend of Sept 19th, at Tahuya. This gives us a month to finish. Personally, every other weekend I have something going on with family. The weekend of Sept 5-6(aka Labaor Day), Im free with no plans. If anyone would like to come down and help clean and prep his rig, that would be the best time for me.

 

Let me know what you fellow Northwesterners think.

*The day of the Tahuya run and giving Jims truck back has changed!! The new day is scheduled for October 3rd!*

Well, the interior is pretty dirty. Lots of things need cleaning. My plan is to aquire and possiby install as much as I can by then. Cleanup is going to take the longest. Need to buff and wax, pressurewash, clean the inside, wheels need polishing, so on and so fourth.

As we discussed when I was there today, I am good for Saturday, but I have to work Sunday. Should be K for at least part of the day Monday as well if that is an option. Kids start school Tuesday so not all of Monday won't be an option there.

 

I'll spend next weekend in the wrecking yards if need be :aok:

Goit a bunch of stuff done today. Came aross a few things that threw us some curveballs. Deal with those tomorrow. Found a lot of little things that needed attention, and a few bigger things. Still, cleaning this thing is going to take a while.

Well, we hit a bit of a setback. Not really, just everything has to be put on hold. Red found out that we needed to schedule a appoinment witht the state patrol to have Jims Pathinder inspected. The earliest time available is September 25th! Sheesh, what a pain. I figured, that after the inspection, if there is anything else that needs to be addressed, we can deal with it then. We are now offically changing the date of returning Jims truck, to October 3rd. This works for me, Red and Jim. Anyone who wants to come that couldnt before, here is your chance. Hopefully all will go well from here on.

Yeah the last time I had an inspection done it was a walk in (drive in?) basis, but now they have a 2 month backlog of appointments!! Luckily, they had some cancellations so the 25th it is.

How difficult is the 4x4 loop at Tahuya? I'm thinking about making the trip up from the 'couve. Just thought Id ask before I bring up my mostly stock rig. Thanks

Tahuya is pretty tame by most wheelers standards. I came up with this location because I knew people with stock rigs would like to go. I was just up there in July with a buddy. He broght his stock rig and did just fine. If he had issues, we either pulled him along or winched as needed. No man left behind. If you would like to see how he did, go to youtube and type in Wheelin Big Homie 2. His was the red pathfinder.
