Assault on Kyushu + Shikoku

The plan was to see what was physically possible in a few days, sharing the driving in a small rented car. I often slept after each climb while Kin drove to the base of the next mountain, but we had agreed not to drive through the night this time. After all, it was supposed to be a holiday of sorts.

Dogs get royal treatment on planes, hand-carried separately from the luggage and put into the pressurized, heated hold. Upon arrival, they are taken out of the hold first in a special truck, and appear before the luggage carousel even starts moving. Certainly more comfortable than the unbearable heat within the cabin on a full flight.
