Troy got back today from his latest adventure, a month long trip to Mainland Japan.
He went to Camp Fuji for some training where he acted as the Fire Support Coordinator. In regular-people-talk, he helped tell people what stuff to blow up. Sounds fun, right?
As you can guess from the name of the camp, he was near Mount Fuji. As a matter of fact, he was in the shadow of the tallest mountain in Japan the entire time. While he was there, he made an overnight trip to Tokyo (play, not work), spent over a week in the field (no showers, eww!), took a white water rafting trip, and hiked to an altitude of more than 12,000 feet.
While I am usually supportive of his work adventures, I was certainly jealous this time around! Troy promises he will take me to Tokyo soon to make up for it. I can deal with that. :)
Enjoy some pics and commentary from his most eventful adventure yet.
|Look very closely... can you see Fuji-san?|
|Work, work, work. How can he see through that fog?|
|The "office". Think they have ergonomic chairs in there?|
|"Home"- Small but a great location!|
|Not the Japan we are used to experiencing!|
|It was not all work.. Troy relaxing before a white water rafting adventure!|
|A trip to Tokyo made me extra jealous! Look at all that shopping. *drool*|
|Troy hiked up the tallest mountain in Japan with nothing but a stick!|
|At each pit stop, stamps were branded onto the stick to commemorate having made it up the mountain.|
|They hiked through the night, and got to see the sun rise from the top.|
|The trip took 9 hours round trip!|
|Troy was sure to leave his mark at the top.|
|My personal favorite- the view landing in Okinawa and coming home to me. :)|
Tune in soon as we get more visitors and continue our adventures! Thanks for reading!
