  1. What are accommodations doing right now re: overseas guests. Offering free cancellations up until late year if you book or something? Can we wake up from this soon?
  2. What a really great idea! I'm going to enjoy going through all that. Thanks for putting it together. I'd love to see photos from way back when these places were open. Or even from places that are still open, of course. (Realise that would probably be very difficult).

    Looking beyond Hokkaido... (towards Nagano)

    PeatGround Welcome. Let us know what you loved about Hokkaido and bits you maybe didn't. That will help! I'm sure you'll love Nagano, it's a great region.

    SSAWS (Chiba)

    Blast from the past! I wish I had made it there. Obviously, real snow on real mountains wins out but if you live over there. That one in Dubai looks nuts.
  5. By Minakami, I mean the tourism office or whatever - they seem to include Naeba in their reports of the ski resorts. Naeba is in Yuzawa, right? Why not include Kagura or GALA or others in Yuzawa? It comes over as being kind of misleading. Not going to lose sleep over it, I'm just curious!

    Trying to lose weight SUCKS

    Been doing well. BUT. Big party last night and I could not resist the beer and food on offer. Feel like I've stepped back a week with just one evening!

    2014- the year of jogging

    Few more rides for me before I am out of here for the summer. Feel good but don't seem to have visibily slimmed down that much.

    Summer Flight Watch 2014

    Out of Japan on Monday for 3+ weeks. Really looking forward to it. Didn't slim down anywhere near as much as I wanted to, oh well.

    Mine gets changed usually when I go out of the country. New one when I come back. Just seems to work out that way. Usually twice a year. Doesn't seem to be bad condition even so.

    World Cup

    For the footie fans out there, as good as the WC has been so far (right?) is it safe to say that all 4 teams that are in the semis are nowhere near "the best" those teams have been in the past?

    Joking, right?

    Went on an 80km ride yesterday, was great. A good long soak in the bath with a beer at the end of the day. Great stuff.

    2014- the year of jogging

    Back on the bike myself. I couldn't keep up with the jogging. Make my knees complain too much. Doing 30km or so 4-5 times a week, so not doing too bad. Though not slimming as much as I'd like.

    This warmer weather has actually got me out more. Not keen on putting layers on to go out in an evening, much easier to if it's t-shirt and shorts.
