Random, lighthearted reflections on living in Okinawa without  the ability to speak, read or write a word of Japanese.

    And there I was thinking you’d been disappeared in Okinawa…but no, you’d just migrated to a different blog WITHOUT TELLING ME! Hrrrr. xxx

    Your blog is beautiful, although I could do with a few less references to sea snakes.

    notice you have a trailer hooked to your k-truck. for your sail boat? total weight? what are the laws of trailering in japan? will be using a jetski or small rib to fish from. we will be retiring to Okinawa within the next few years and the area you picture is perfect. is it onna?

    I have a Tacoma, my second Toyota truck the first one a 96 Pre Runner. One month ago I to purchased a FWC, 2014 Fleet, and had lock nuts added to the turn buckle for insurance against loosing. I like the idea of adding chains to the tie down I bolts. Somewhere in your travels you mention your furnace failed but you never said why. I would be interested in how you fixed the problem! Pic of my rig below. I wonder around Southern California much as you do and one of my favorite “sand boxes” to camp is off 395 from Ridgecrest to Bishop. I knew Mike and Jody of Cerro Gordo many years before their passing. Our paths may yet cross someday. I might suggest getting a Ham Radio license for the back country when cell phones fail you. Email me if you like for more information.
