It was a good day. Everyone seemed to have a good time. Some of us took some minor damage but everyone drove out and they did so uninjured :aok:

Jim's truck ran great. As Derek pointed out at the end of the day, it was still not 100 percent on the drive up but had been showing improvement every time we or I took it out and drove it. Jim said it performed great which not only is what matters most, but is also a far cry from the hard start and rough idle in the yard, to the eventual non=start after we got it to Derek's. :aok:

As other said, it was way to dry, "Mud Lake" was bone dry, if you look up the Tahuya run form a few years ago I believe there are shots of 87pathy, MudBathFinder and/or packie88 going through the mud hole that is normally there.
I wish I had video running when Jim pulled up to his resting spot for lunch at Mud Lake, he stopped just in time and was still the truck tipped quit a ways before deciding to remain upright. And again while leaving, because Jim caught a little are with the front end. This was just before the pick showing the front of Jim's truck, the back of Derek's and the Chevy 350 powered Toyota)

Next year? You bet! s said, a years notice should be enough to make plans for any one close and maybe even a few a bit further away :beer:

Here are some pics from the day (I have video but that will have to wait some)

Derek's Steering poped whiling climbing a light hill, which he fixed there, then readjusted in a parking lot in Belfair on the way home.

I did not get a shot of the actual damage but he took a couple hits from the tree in that pic.

RedPath88:

Attempted to follow th Shane (Cherokee) through a couple threes & over a rock, but the lowr part of the ARB kept hitting the rock, I just could not get the angle I needed to get between the threes, that resulted when I slid a little to the right on the rock.

Clipped a rock on a hill climb

Took that gong down te same hill that nailed my rim P...
Unfortunately not everyone was was there for those pics. Morningwould and his buddy with the chevota had left earlier as did Silverpath.

More Pics can bee found here: First Annual MrJim Run

No real damage to mine! :) The truck was tilted far enough over that the tree hit right at the top of the door where the metal turns, so it took the impact surprisingly. Now that I cleaned it up, there's a slight scuff and I think I've *bent* the top of the door back enough for no worries. Thanks again Shane for the little tug out of that.

Note to self: don't do that. I took a different line farther over on the hill in 2wd trusting the locker to get me through, but I lost momentum at the top of the hill. I got it into 4low at that point, but the front end just slid out from under me and into that tree she went. Good times :togo:

Awesome pictures and videos! Hopefully I can make it up there next time. It's amazing to have Jim back with his Pathy and back to wheeling. :)

This is the beginning of my adventure, and it went downhill from there. My first time meeting Jim back in '02 was my first time wheeling my truck, and my first time being pulled out.... by Jim. I got in deep, chickened out due to my fresh K&N install, and got a bit tipsy trying to back out with an open diff and auto hubs.

Posted Image

Its fitting that only my 2nd time ever getting recovered was on this last run via Shane. Sheesh :blush:


So Jim, I recall you mentioning a Reiter's Pit run.........
