  1. Lookin like rain through the SJ Yuzawa webcam as well. But seems like it's dumpin through the Gala cam. Also seems like the lifts are closed, and the cats are going grooming!!!! WTF, must be the winds.

  3. LDP, Wasn't trying to lump you in with the rest, and I was a bit worried it would seem that way. Actually I sent you a mail the other day saying let's go ride!!
  4. Yup, you'll have an idea. Actually though I once bought one at Mr. Donuts for 1,000 yen, and there weren't any damn donuts in it!!! I think they're usually last years "outdated" steeze.

The fines that the family has to pay after one of their members dives in front of a train start from 10,000,000 ¥ and can go up to 100,000,000 depending on how long the trains were stopped if it was on rush hour etc. I heard that if someone jumps in front of a JR train that the family doesn't have to pay. I heard that the fee only applies to private lines. But of course I may be wrong. Whatever the case that is some heavy
  6. Alrighty then I'll work on the wife. Had a killer day in Kagura today. I'll post some pics in a bit.
  7. Wow, I hacked that quote up. Didn't mention that I too was once a member of the US forces. Hated every second of it till I got kicked out a short time after joining. Did meet a few good people there though whom I still keep in contact with but...

Actually it seems they were dressed like dogs, or various Marvel comic characters. Exactly, what can you expect. I've had problems with a couple of military kids before. Anytime I go to a concert and see Military personel they often make not only themselves look stupid but foreigners in general, especially Americans. I'm not saying all of them are like that cause there are some decent people in the armed forces. But, the way I see it is they come over here t
  9. Just discovered Google earth the other day. I know I'm always a bit behind. I keep telling people about it, and there like "Old news bro". I can't stop playing with it, I've been lookin for different mountains, my house, and work place. Pretty fun. Does anyone have the advanced one that you have to pay for?

  11. I know I can't believe she waited that long, she said she got there, saw the line going ALL THE WAY TO TOKYU HANDS and said "**** this", but she went and got a cup of coffee and sat on the ledge outside. Some folks walked out of KK, sat next to her and started muchin their donuts they just got. She said they let out an Ehhhhhh! Oisshhhhiiii!!! Cho Oishiii!, and then one of them started describing them, and comparing them to Mr.D's. After that she said the donuts were "calling her". SJA- Ah sorry about that. Don't forget to bring a fold up stadium chair if your gonna go jump in that
  12. Right on. I almost always go solo as well. Gala is the perfect place for that being so easy/fast to get to. I've never been there when it was crowded though. I love pow, but I don't mind groomers as well. I learned to ski in Michigan riding 300 vert ft. of blue ice with roots and rocks poking through so you'll never hear me complain about conditions.
  13. XilR8, Will all those trains go directly to Haneda ? Or just some of them? I remember when I lived in Shonan I ended up at Haneda instead of going to Yokohama a couple times (I'm a slow learner) just jumping on Keikyu without lookin, jammin on my headphones, and Shhiiitttt!!
  14. Looks sick! I expected bare spots. Did you go solo? Can't wait to drag myself out the covers at 4a.m. 2mrw. I decided to go to Kagura instead. Didn't expect any new snow, so I'm ****in stoked, even a dusting will be a blessing.
  15. Well, we now have Krispy Kreme in Japan. I saw it on the news the other day. I think this must be the only shop in Japan in Shinjuku across the bridge from Tokyu Hands second floor exit. I told my wife about them so she went there and had to wait in line for an hour and a half. It's just like the shops in the states with the little donut factory/assembly line in the window. Yummy They must be making a fortune on these things. I bet these would go for a mint on Yahoo auction too if anyone needs some extra cash.
  16. You could take the bus or the train. If it was me I would take the bus so I didn't have to transfer all my luggage. The bus will take you doorstep to doorstep, and you will still go right through Tokyo. But, the train will likely be right on time where the bus MAY be a bit late, but they are usually pretty damn close to schedule. If taking the bus, I would leave a hour and a half leeway to account for a late bus or check-in delays which I've never experienced at Haneda but...
  17. My wife buys those, but she isn't all into it. She usually only buys one or so, she doesn't wake up early to get to the shop first or nothing like her sister. It depends, Some of them you have no idea what so ever what's inside where others they will show you, or you can see through the bags a bit. Alot of them are quite pricey, but you usually get double or more of the price in merchandise. She got skunked last year. She bought one from a shop that she like's, but didn't like anything that was inside. Oh well she almost got her money back from Yahoo auctions by selling the
  18. Dayyyaaaammmmmnnnn!!!, I just read on TGR that Alyeska broke their record and got 721cm during Dec. 06 For the metric challenged that's almost 24' all!
  19. Really? Damn EBC you gots da skillz to match dem steeze huh?
  20. Sweet, I'm prolly gonna ride Sun. or Mon. too, but I'm not 100% sure yet. I tweaked my knee a bit in Hakuba last week, so I gotta see how thinks go on Fri.
  21. Ah, I'm on that train Fri. Just before the snows supposed to start to fall. If it was earlier I'd change the plans and go 2mrw. since I'm going solo Fri.
