Just got home.... Long drive but totally worth it. Only touched my rocker panel once... and I'm never following a Jeep into the thick brush again :tongue: I have a few days of buffing to do. All kidding aside, was great meeting everyone and good luck Jim. Hope to see you all next time!

Everything went pretty good. Great day for off-roading. Too bad everything wasnt a bit more wet. But we had fun!!!

Okay, what a great day today was!!! First, my Pathfinder looked and ran amazing. I was speechless when I saw it come into the parking lot and hear that familiar roar of its engine. I can't believe what a great job the guys did on it. The paint looked like new and so did the interior. The guys added a nice CB radio for the trail chatter, along with an antenna, as well as a PA speaker. They also installed a nice stereo too. They covered so many small details to make it just right and it was just right.

It felt like home to climb into the drivers seat and I could not wait to get on the trails again. I confess that it took me an hour or so to feel comfortable enough in it again to start cutting loose a bit. The trail was really dry and we were all disappointed in that, but atleast it made the cleanup easier at the end of the day.

We had a great time though and had our hands full with a number of challenging hill climbs. The Cherokee really gave us a run for our money all day long. Damn him. :) He set the bar high with his lifted, locked, winched Jeep, but he was also sure to rib us hourly (in fun) about how Jeeps are superior to our Pathfinders. We ribbed right back too though pointing out how his unibody "car" was not a real truck without a frame.

We had lunch in the waterless mud pits posed on every high rock or mound we could find. The Jeep ended up going into a really severe rock pit hillside and he had a hell of a time getting out again. The whole Pathfinder crew helped by placing rocks under tires and spotting him until he was free. Gutsy move though with no sliders on his rig.

It was a blast (water or not) and we got allot of photos and videos. I hope to see a few videos shot of my rig posted soon. I have lots of photos and footage to post, but probably won't get to all of it tonight. I will add some photos though. Hope you enjoy them. By the way, thank you everyone for this amazing gift. Words cannot say how deeply I am moved by the generosity and good will of all of you who helped to make today possible...

This was talked about in great detail. I think it was agreed that either the last weekend in September or the first weekend in October will now be know as the MrJim Run Weekend. Will we do it again next year? Absolutly!!! Is a years notice enough for anyone who is a bit further away?

Who all attended?? Nice to see someone representing the R50's for us. :aok:

Looks like a great day, and MrJim looks great -- nice work guys! Congrats, Jim, on the reunion!

Lets see if I remember everyone....

Jim
Redpath88
Mr. Pickles
5523pathfinder
DaOz
Morningwould
Silverpath
The toyevy(I cant remember his name)
Dan(another pathfinder we met on the trail, and will probably be a new member soon)
Shane (jeep cherokee)
We all had family and friends riding with us.

I think thats it, but I will double check. I was a great day. We had a few interesting moments, but was easily worked out.
