Tomorrow I go to Hokkaido with Jerome (and many other friends) for the early Friday morning start of the Hokkaido 1200, Asia's most storied 1200 kilometer Audax event. This is a "revenge" effort after the 2014 version was cancelled mid-event due to road closures from a typhoon. This time (hope I do not jinx it) the weather forecast looks much better. Stay tuned. The blog is about to come back to life. And I hope not as a zombie!
