Right now we speak to you from the Roadhouse at the base of Mount Fuji. What a day! We've technically been alert and moving for about 30 hours now and are now just winding the evening down with double-tall Jack & Cokes. Our equipment is lazily lying about the stage for tomorrow night and 28 Days Later is playing on every TV. We're the only ones here save for a few Marines and the bar tender. Dad, he says we should be able to get your request at the PX. So look forward to your ribbons and stuff! We shudder to think what you may have gotten up to when you were here last. Some slot machines have come up winners and the winnings are fueling the evening nicely.

They've put us up in the kickin' Mountain View Inn, where we each have our own room and have had a shower each to clean the 15 hour trans-pacific funk away. Driving from the airport through Tokyo and to the base of Mount Fuji has been a most surreal experience. The mountain literally dominates the skyline and any picture we've seen of it before can't compare to the way it towers over our heads. The air is crisp, cold and fresh.

We set out to the SNACK BAR SEXY located off base for a few nightcaps. What, you thought we'd be good little boys and sleep? PLEASE!

The room was small, and the karaoke was intense. Matt could barely sit on the stool without his knees hitting him the face. The only ladies were those behind the bar, and they treated us very well. We picked up a little Japanese, but can't seem to remember this morning just what we learned.
We do remember one thing however: We love it here.
