This was the long awaited, camp and trail ride. I was really looking forward to this. I got a chance to hang out with some great people and do some offroading. Although I was not driving a Jimny, I think my Toyota Hilux Surf (4Runner), held up rather nicely.

Once again, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. I’ve been staying extremely busy. I’m taking 2 more classes, as I’ve mentioned before and the Algebra class is whoopin’ my buttocks. I thought I was good in math but guess not that good. Alot has happened since my last post. I’m also working on another website for the LRS Spouse Group. http://www.35lrsspouse.com I’ve almost got template done, just need to finish it up and add content, then troubleshoot any errors.
First of all, I recently got rid of my Pajero. Guy payed me 10,000 yen ($100) and drove it away to a junk yard. Same week, I found a 1992 Toyota Surf (4Runner) and paid $1500 for it. It’s an awesome vehicle, but the v6 uses more fuel than my previous 4 cylinder diesel.
Our new Baby Audrey is growing like a weed. She’s over 1 month now and is eating more, pooping more, and sometimes crying more. She was recently diagnosed with craniosynostosis, which is where (basically) the skull grows back too fast and causes deformity. Now, luckily Audrey’s condition isn’t too bad, where it affects her brain, but still requires surgery. I have an appointment in Trippler Army Medical Center in Hawaii in July. The Government only pays for one person to fly over, which is going to be me, so if my wife goes, we’re going to have to pay for it out of our pocket. I can’t really afford it, but I’m going to try my best to get this done. Enough abou that.
Planning an offroad adventure / camping trip this weekend… Just an over nighter in the mountains. Can’t wait to get out there. The kids are really looking forward to going, and to be honest, so am I.
Enough for now. I’m tired of typing…
