Epic road trip; Cock-eyed optimism

Well, our little trip to Mito the other weekend was just a practice run for a real epic road trip Yoko and me and the baby are taking over Christmas break. We're seeing all the big sites. The whole Southern half of Japan, basically. Here's a rundown.

EpicRoadtrip
  1. From Niigata to Fukuii Prefecture. This is on an overnight ferry where we can ride and sleep, the best of both worlds. We will arrive in Fukuii well rested and ready for the longest portion of the trip.
  2. From Fukuii to Fukuoka. This is something like 750 km and will take about 10 hours I think. The baby will be crying, Yoko and I will be irritated with each othe, but if the sun shines on us/ the god's are pleased, we will arrive in Fukuoka in time for a Christmas Eve Service at my old church.
  3. From Fukuoka to Kochi. This involves another ferry and some scenic driving.
  4. From Kochi to Nishinomiya. This is to see Yoko's grandmother for a couple of days.
  5. From Nishinomiya to Niigata. Through the snowy Japanese Alps, back in time for a class at 4:15 on January 4th.

Only those who attempt greatness can succeed in becoming great. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
