Our cross country inspiration... A Japanese tourist?

I'd like to introduce you to a good friend...


Love the 'Mug Shot'

While I was busy working, for the last 7 years, at Komatsu, I met this crazy guy from Japan. He liked to THINK he was working here in the U.S., but to be quite honest, mostly all he did was play.

- Snowboarding
- Fishing
- Mountain biking

- Driving his Ford over practically every inch of the entire west coast

Taku's amazing trips were one of the biggest reasons I even wanted to make this driving trek with Christy and the little Chits.

Here's a small sampling of some of his past adventures...

Thanks Taku-san, for all the killer snowboarding trips and the memories!

Hey Al, long time no see!
I'm really proud of you because you have driven lots of place.
Also thanks for introduce me, I liked your comment especially "to be quite honest, mostly all he did was play." :)
I think everything is okay on your new place, and I will visit there in someday. Pls send me a letter some time!
