Ok, two pairs of snow tyres!

As for the baseball, we wandered into the Nagano stadium after a previous event, and there was a game in progress. A Jr. Highschool in Niigata vs the same from Nagano. Some high school championship, I think. It was hot and sunny, and both kids seemed to enjoy it, so we sat down to watch. South facing stadium, so I even managed to get a bit of a sunburn!

Hey Seemore. Been doing my own thing mate, just lots of work in the NT on long rosters etc, burying friends, girlfriends coming and going and generally just living life. Nothing too exciting although a couple surf trips to PNG, Indo etc and some epic adventure style riding across Australia. Got back into hot rods and Harleys again which has been great and bringing one of my chops over to ride in spring. Booking into both AST1 and AST2 this season if that's what you meant mate and may finish off the second Master degree but really need some time off. Will pass on your regards to the guys, everyone is well and yeah TJ is doing really well. Looking forward to settling in and having an awesome season. Looking at buying a bar too but that's a whole other story :)

 

Here's a couple pics for those that may be interested
