    Default Operation XJ Bumper tracking thread

    It has come to our attention that there is raffled XJ bumper from Camp MJ (Midwest) 2010 that, due to circumstance, has not completed it's journey to the winner. A mission to move this along is taking shape.

    This is where the status of said bumper can be followed as it proceeds on a Midwest tour in the coming weeks.

    rsq41 has made contact with HillBillE; arranging pick-up in northeastern Minnesota. Once that is complete, rsq41 will start movement south and coordinate with gearhead1985 for transfer in central Iowa.

    (edit: doh! can't remember proper 31C syntax!! Geez that was long time ago!)

    The bumper is on the move. Found HillBillE easy enough.

    Found HillBillE.jpg

    Bumper fit in the Grand Cherokee just fine. HillBille reported it is 66" x 34".

    Gotta work on my picture skills here... Microsoft told me this was a good web size... Micorsoft lies...

    Edit: Or maybe Microsoft tells the truth... Much better after posting thumbnail is overwritten...

    Sorry I did not catch the Wednesday vs. Thursday note sooner... Thursday re-confirmed...

    So one could call that snow... mostly just some leftover ice really... but...

    THIS would be snow.... Had to check some forest roads out to make it a proper road trip!
