    HiQueen!! or HiPrincess!! ( I do not greet males)

    Here we go...

    ACHTUNG: DO NOT RATE THESE PAGES!!!!
    at least you think they offer information that you cannot access in Encyclopaedia Brittannica. and other serious sources.

    Going up to Mt. Tsukuba

    The story is rather simple and it was told to my VTFriends; those who came and rated this series of pictures were called clowns by someone who eats from our efforts in bringing a human side to this virtuality.

    I came back from a long trip spanning three continents. The first weekend with my family after the trip I decided to go hiking, and i have not doing this for more than 10 years. The closest thing I did with regularity was Heinekken.
    We went by car to the the cable car station of Mount Tsukuba. Parking is free.

    PS: It seems that taken my VTfriends to walk with me up to the Tsukuba summit is not enough sport tip. HQ does not consider Tsukuba-san hiking a tip cause they are expert in Tsukuba. and the visitors are not going to be interested in the most important hiking spot in the whole area. REading trough these 92 steps to Tsukuba summit will tell you lot of things about Japan, the Japanese and our experience of 20 years in Japan.

    "equipment")

    Smile now...you will cry later.

    Ivanics is a kind of photography -very similar to what Annamation is in videos- where you should be able to have a picture of you and a pretty girl without asking anybody to take the picture. This was taken at the TOOSANGUCHI and the reason
    because I was not smiling can be tracked to not being that innocent: hard work ahead.
    .
    *For Ivanics and Annamation refers to VTMembers that are friend of mine...See my list*

    Equipment: If you want to drink something at real prices, bring it with you...

    Equipment: Chocolats!!! yes chocolats...

    From the grass

    - Ok, honey! I will wait for you. Take a rest....

    The picture shown my comrade as seen from my
    natural bed. A very serious recomendation for all of you serious beer drinkers is: Take it easy at he begining. You don't need to demonstrate noone that you are able to go up in no time. Take that steppy segment as easy as possible and soon you will be rewarded by the beautiful nature of Tsukuba-san...By now, you should know I am not talking about a girl called Tsukuba. SAN stands for mountain...Like in San Francisco.

    Equipment: a pillow.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A hiking day can not start without the photo in front
    of the TOOSANGUCHI. By now, you are an expert in the Japanese vocabulary. TOO means climb,
    SAN means mountain and GUCHI is competitor
    of Louis Viton.
    Cheese!!!!

    Equipment: Think of something that can give you energy....
    Metaphysical stuff not included

    850 mts to go

    by manuelEB Updated Jun 15, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Now we are at 700 meters over the sea level. I think they are not adding the 15000 of the sea level at the Marianas bottom...
    Another very looooooong 850 mets to get to the pinnacle.

    Equipment: Getting better. No as thirsty as before. My tank still has gasoline. Bring with you one of those books of auto-help. You can leave it in the trash up there.

    Traffic

    by manuelEB Updated Jun 15, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There still no traffic jams here but signal light could be a must in "difficult" paths. It was wet here and there. So careful was required.

    Equipment: A logic extension to the previous papragraphs.
    Put some care in your backpack.

    Flowers

    by manuelEB Updated Jun 15, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If hiking is a sport activiy, playing with the light is an intellectual activity. "Mente sana en cuerpo mas o menos sano" is an old Sapnish saying that perhaps is not Spanish, and perhaps is not a saying...

    Equipment: Bring ideas. Lot of ways to capture the nature.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Asking what kind of flowers are these? It is more or less the begining of a conversation with
    fellow hickers. I asked why didn't we take the cable car up? They saw my face and understood very well the question...

    Equipment: I mentioned the towel already. Bring another one.
