Amagi Camp Event

Hi everyone, how was your weekend? Last weekend we were supposed to go to Kurogami mountain but were invited to join Matsumoto san from Southern Works to help teach outdoor skills at a camping event in Amagi. It was a great chance to try out my new Hillberg tent with Manachan, it`s a 2 person 4 season tent with a huge vestibule for gear and the girl!, she seemed to like it!!

We taught the members to how to set up tents and how to prepare some simple meals. After that we were up late listening to Dave and Matsumoto san on the guitars. A great way to spend the weekend!!

After we reached our destination, Mizobe Park, we had a quick lunch and then the kids learned about the basics of compass navigation. The kids caught on really fast and they did a really great job!

Nakadake Tour

To the top of Kyushu, Nakadake Day trip

Nakadake trail head

Hey everyone, how was your wet Friday? Today we had a tour to Nakadake, the highest mountain on Kyushu. The mountain is located in the Kyushu highlands of Oita Prefecture.

We started our hike from the Makinoto pass, and as we worked our way up the path we were joined by a stray dog who followed us for the rest of the trip. Apparently he has been in the area for the about 3 weeks, he`s shy with people but he and Mana had a lot of fun together.

We stopped at the mountain hut for a lunch of somen before working our way up to the top.

IMG_1893.jpg IMG_1896.jpg IMG_1899.jpg

The view from the top was almost completely white with only a few breaks in the clouds where we caught a glimpse of the valley below. The weather wasn`t the best but it was still a great day at the top of Kyushu.

Mountain Rescue Training in Kumamoto

Mountain Rescue Training in Kumamoto

IMG_1869.jpg

Hey everyone, How`s it going? Today was a really cool day because I had the chance to participate in some Mountain Rescue training in the Aso mountain range in Kumamoto.
Early Wednesday morning I headed south to meet up with other members of the Kyushu Rescue Dog Association and the Aso Fire Department Mountain Rescue branch. The objective of the exercise was to practice working together with the Mountain Rescue Branch in Searching for a missing hiker in the Aso area.

A member of the Aso Fire Department acted as the missing hiker and we conducted a search using the SAR Dogs. The hiker was located on a steep ledge suffering from a broken leg and other injuries. The Fire department rappelled down to the victim and administered first aid and a rescue helicopter was brought in to evacuate the victim.

The mountain Rescue team lower the victim to an area for easier evacuation
and then the heli lifted the victim and transported them to hospital.

IMG_1855.jpg IMG_1857.jpg

It was a great chance to get some practical training in mountain rescue ops and we developed a great relationship between the Aso Mountain rescue and the Kyushu Rescue Dog Association and I`m REALLY looking forward to developing more relationships like this with other fire rescue services throughout Kyushu.

Kurogami Day Hike

IMG_1706.jpg

Hi everyone how`s the Obon holiday going? I just got back from a dive trip in Kagoshima, the diving was great blue water and sunny skies! Before I went to Kagoshima I took a day and hiked up Mt. Kurogami. The mountain is located just outside of Takao city in Saga prefecture and what a great hike! With most of the hike under the cover of the forest canopy even on the hottest day you can still make the hike comfortably.

IMG_1661.jpg IMG_1717.jpgIMG_1700.jpg IMG_1708.jpg

As you work your way up the mountain you follow a cool stream and some great rock formations and as you head up you reach a ridgeline that you traverse as you head up to the top. The view from the top is fantastic but you have to do a short climb to reach it.

IMG_1701.jpg IMG_1710.jpg IMG_1721.jpg

The start of the way down is a little steep and you need to use some ropes and ladders but once you clear those the way down is really smooth with some great view points along the way. Even though the mountain is only 516 metres high it is still a great day hike! Amarok`s next trip to this area is on Sunday August 31st, join us on this terrific hike send an email for details.

Until next time….

Shime Machi Kids Outdoor English Event

Shime Machi Kids Outdoor English Event

IMG_1743.jpgHey everyone how are your plans for obon? From the 13th to the 15th I`ll be diving in Kagoshima!

Today I want to write about a cool event that happened last week. Last week I had the chance to teach a 3 day Kids English communication and outdoor skills course at the Shime city office.

During this event the kids learned how to introduce themselves and also how to use a map and compass.
It was the first time for them to use a compass and they all did really well, by the end of the event they could set and follow a heading and navigate a multi heading course. They all did great and I had a great time with them.


IMG_1737.jpg IMG_1746.jpg IMG_1747.jpg

For all the parents out there I really recommend that you provide an opportunity for your children to learn the basics of the outdoors. During this summer vacation take your kids and go play outside!!

Unitl next time....
