Was thinking about Jim this week, probably because the last time I remember running into him was a similarly-humid August weekend after doing the Book (and NOT in good style, mind you) with sweat dripping into my pits.
Anyone in the know about how his recovery has gone? Fully-healed? Climbing again? Racing motocross? MMA fighting?
ETA: thanks very much for the update, Dave; even tough guys take time to mend. Will touch base FMI and ask folks to keep sending good vibes (although if he's any kinda engineer at all, Jim wouldn't believe in empirical ephemera like 'vibes', right?). Dale
