    Good point. But I don’t hate most big cities.

    One long day I have not seen dark in about 24 hrs as we followed the sun. Almost to my destination waiting on a plane in South Korea IMG_20190607_180138755.jpg IMG_20190607_182603038_HDR.jpg

    As some of you may have seen from my other thread, I went to Japan for a few days this week. I had a little time to wonder around and took way too many pictures. I really enjoyed Japan and could spend a couple weeks just exploring the greater Tokyo area. I’ll try not to go overboard here, or repeat food pictures from the other thread...

    I could have miss remembered, there were a lot of zeros and saki could have been involved.

    Edit: modern phone technology FTW! It is 6.9 million, not 69.

    It was a cool view and one of the few modern hotels that I have been at with a legit balcony on each room. Here’s the view looking the other direction

    Well it’s a good thing cause I thought maybe I had to much Saki when I looked up the exchange so I did again and yesterday was a better deal than today. But either way it’s less than that so hell, buy two or three at that price 6D9236CB-0028-4FC5-8CA2-9BC98B643CDB.png

    Man, that is a killer view. Would love to just walk around that area and explore.
    Have always thought Japan would be such a fun place to visit, with all the cool tech they have that they implement in just about everything.

    $63,680 is still a boat load of money to some people!

    Damn right it is. Both my wife’s and my diesel trucks were less than that combined! Either way your trip looked awesome and I’m definitely jealous of that phenomenal looking Sushi!!

    Have you been to the Lake Michigan shoreline? That’s like being in Texas and saying you’ll have a Coke. There’s no telling....
