  1. Looks great in the shots, hope it stays that way!! We arrive next Friday!!
  2. We hired a Toyota 'Voxy' which is about HiAce size, from TooCoo at Narita last January and drove through Tokyo and up to Hakuba. There were 5 of us and there was enough room for all our gear, with the ski bags being pushed under the rear seats. It was fantastic to have car at Hakuba and we will be doing it again next Jan when we return. Having a vehicle made trips to other resorts and places such as Jusco shopping trips, laudromat trips and the Monkey Onsen easy. Yes, it was probably more expensive than the shink & bus option (which we had done on previous trips) but the con
  3. I'll be back again for a little over 2 weeks next year. I wish I could stay longer but work dictates the duration unfortunately!! Sucks to be self employed sometimes!!! Looking forward to catching up with Creek Boy, Ewok and a host of others!!

Summers here are rough Hey CB, I haven't been around much here lately, I've been really busy with work and other stuff and to add to the pressure, we are flying to Peru on Friday for a quick work-ish (for Caz) related trip, which includes a few days at Machu Pichu taking loads of shots!!

RAW takes more fiddling, because you are not leaving the WB, etc up to the camera. So you have to manually go back and set it yourself. More time consuming. So I wanna have a good workflow down pat befor
  8. Yes CB, back in Oz and trying to get back into work mode but finding it very difficult!! I seem to have spent most of my spare time back compiling video moofies and sorting photos rather than working!!! I might post a few shots later.

This another one of your kick backs Tj? Every statement has and subliminal advert eh , be it coffee, free internet access, snow on car comps........boring.... We call it networking! I also know the guy he speaks of, and yes, he certainly does know his stuff!! In fact, he is one of the most obliging and helpful people you could ever meet! Looking forward to seeing you in about 8 days TJ.
  11. Ease up Sarge, the kid was just being funny I thought it was quite good and smirked to myself!
  12. C-mo, it's a failry straight forward excercise, catch the Narita Express to Tokyo, follow the green train symbol signs to platforms 21/22/23/24 dowstairs, catch the Shink to Nagano then taxi, if you get in late. Downside is it will be fairly expensive that way. If you're on a tight budget, the overnight bus would be the go but then again, the Shink is a great experience!
