  1. Amazing. I thought I was the only one to keep track of this type of data. I checked and during the 2007-2008 snow-season our total elevation climbed was 41,500m, total distance hiked was 422 km. My wife burst out laughing when I told her Hana put in more than twice the elevation and distance. Super-doggie indeed!

  2. Compared with the minute-by-minute records of some Japanese hikers detailing even how many calories they ate where and when, I think we’re relatively sane.

    Your distances/heights in the winter are amazing as plowing up through fresh snow is surely far harder than hiking on dry rock.

  3. It certainly feels good without the self-inflicted pressure of going out every weekend, but I don’t think we’ll be getting fat any time soon! With such a great forecast, I’ll take Hana for a run up Iodake early tomorrow morning – the colours are spectacular right now.

    I’m looking forward to more photographs and stories of your mad exploits this winter.

  4. Not as we know it! I’m not going to start blogging about cafe food and other trivia, but it would be a shame to lose touch with readers. So, the dog and I will just have to find some other mountains to climb.

    I hope to start another blog, which I’ll link to from here. Will let you know when it’s ready.

    PS: Thanks, Capt’n, for your post about Weston being back in print – it was a fascinating read. I’ll have to hire some coolies next year.

  5. Great to hear there’s another blog in the works, we always enjoyed following your and Hana’s adventures in the mountains.

    By the way, we started our snow season this past Thurs. We went to Hakuba, hiked up Daisekkei and enjoyed some turns down. Really nice to get back out there on snow! The mountains around Yuzawa got a pretty good dusting of snow as well.
