  1. Thanks, I have been doing some research and found out that you can use Garmin or Magellan in asia but there won't be many details unless you buy it here or install the software like you said. Anyways, I decided to go with a V.I.O. POV 1 as my xmas present to myself rather than a gps.
  2. I'm looking for a handheld GPS system that has preloaded worldwide maps. I want to be able to use it in North America, Asia, and Europe. Any GPS gurus here that can point me in the right direction?
  3. My bro lives in VT and picked up a copy when he was in Kingston last week. He says its sick, he's ripping me a copy, should be here in a week or so. My copies of Claim and UTI will tide me over but I am really looking forward to Reasons.
  4. This is one of the very few times where one can actually see how backwards Japan can be. As a gaijin living in Kanagawa I have been turned down entrance to various establishments because I am not Japanese. I have even seen signs on doors that say "Japanese Only".

THAT is how people get caught up in disasters that could have been avoided.

  6. I don't think my PMs work anymore. I think I still have your number in my phone though, you still got the same number?
  7. 3500 TB, Do you know what size you are? These are Large I believe. Brand new!
  8. This is simple. There is no such thing as avalanches in Niseko
  9. they don't do it in feb and march because of the river. you get lowered into a raft on the river so when its rageing they can't do it.
  10. Just got back from my second time bungy jumping. Both times have been great so I wanted to throw up a post. The guys that run Bungy Japan in Minikami are really cool, they do a fantastic job. I have gone there with 2 different groups and both times everyone came home super stoked. I am hooked now and will be going back for more. It’s a 42 meter high bridge over a river. Today we were treated to a group of rafters capsizing and scrambling to rescue themselves while we were harnessing up. If you have any questions about it feel free to ask. I highly recommend it for eve
  11. Watched the newest Rambo movie this week, it was freaking badass. None stop action, no BS, he rips out a guys throat with his bare hand, and he vaporizes a guy with a 50 cal at point blank range. If you like violence this move is a must see.
