霧氷ハイキング

Winter hiking has begun!!!

Top_20111219132958.jpg

We can all feel how cold it has been the last week or so and while most people may complain about it, we LOVE IT!! With the cold comes the beauty of the winter hiking season and we decided to get started right away with 2 great tours back to back.

On Saturday we headed to the Aso area of Kumamoto to hike up Mt. Eboshi, a great little hike with a spectacular view of the Aso Volcano and the surrounding landscape.

This trip was our latest adventure with the H Plus store Fukuoka and once we got a little higher everyone got the chance to see the “Muhyo” or Rime frost covering the windward side of everything in sight. It was a great intro to winter hiking and I’m looking forward to taking them all out again.

The following day we headed this time to the Kuju Highlands to climb its namesake, Mt. Kuju. We started from the Makinoto pass trailhead and as the elevation is a few hundred meters higher the Aso area we were quickly surrounded by Muhyo and the higher we went the more beautiful it became.

The weather for both days was really nice, but on Sunday afternoon clouds rolled in and the wind picked up so the temperature dropped so much that the water in hose Daves hydration pack froze!!

On the way back down we stopped to do a quick training session with Manachan before heading down. In the video can you find Dave before Mana does??



It was absolutely the best way to spend the weekend and I can’t wait until our next trip. On the 30th and 31st of December we’ll be holding a year-end camping event in the Kurume area. If you would like to join us, drop me an email and if you don’t yet have a proper sleeping bag of tent we have a few here.

Weather depending we will also be going on a “初日の出” or first sunrise hike on January 1st. We will be starting in the dark and we plan to have everyone back home by late morning.

For more detail on these 2 fun events see the Amarok schedule for more details

忘年会!!

Amarok Bonenkai

Top_20111212151451.jpg

Last Saturday was a great day at Amarok, and we didn’t even go anywhere!

土曜日はアマロックにかんしてはすごくいい日でした! けどどこでも行ってない!!

It was our first Bonenkai in the shop, and it was a huge success with over 20 people from the Amarok family coming to take part.

土曜日はアマロックの初忘年会で20人以上の仲間が集まりました!
ものすごく楽しい時間でした!

The only downside to the party was the cloudy skies, we all wanted to see the Lunar eclipse at 11:30 but the weather had a different plan. Even without the eclipse was still all had a great time!

残念だけど月食は見れなかった!

I want to thank everyone who came for making it such a wonderful time and on top of that I also want to thank everyone who has taken part in an Amarok event since the beginning of this journey.

アマロックに来てくれたみんな本当にありがとうございました!感謝してます!来年もよろしくお願いします。

As this year winds down we’re left with only 3 more outdoor adventures. See the Amarok schedule for info on these events.

Have a great holiday season and lets go outside and play again next year!!
