Gaijin on the mountain.
Today we claimed Fujisan. Sarah, Melanie and I all made it to the summit. Michael and Kira wisely turned back at station 8. There is a good story here, but there is no way I am going to try to type it up before going to bed. A little part of me hopes I can get Sarah to do a guest blog about this adventure, but it seems unlikely.
Many people both strangers and friends gave us good advice for climbing Fuji. We ignored all of it. Except for the one thing that Richard said to us, “Make sure you have a flashlight.” We did. Thank you Richard.
