冬前の峠①

A friend of many people and local visitor of the touge had set up a small event for a handful of people to attend.  Mainly to gather friends and have a blast before the un-drivable  snow covered roads of winter came.   However, this event also marked his last day or night on the mountains with a specific car.

Better late than never ~ My experience at Chiba Damashi 2013

Back on the 27th, well let’s start on the 26th.  A Friday, long after school had ended I was back at home twiddling my thumbs and dilly dallying on the internet, wasting time, and in spite of the excitement waiting for me just around the corner on the weekend I still hadn’t gathered my tools and dropped them into a bag.
