      thanks, 24 mile B-group ride on Wednesday so I need to take tomorrow off to save my legs.

      We got 4 chicks and my brother got 6, so we'll have 10 chicks here for a couple weeks.

      Yes, good idea.

      I know you have some time before it's necessary, but did you get the tractor coop completed?

      Went to work.
      Stopped at Best Buy on the way home for some 16g wire.
      Snagged some Chick-fil-a
      Ate said Chick-fil-a
      Started digging new beds in the backyard until dark.
      Unpacked and temporarily rewired my Bose cubes. I had to snip the wires from my old house, which were run through the wall. They work, but those wires look like crap.

      The printed plans are sitting on my kitchen table, I was in NYC all weekend for work and my brother is in Indonesia until the 9th, so we're going to build both when he comes back.

      I pretty much do the same thing every weekday; work, gym, guitar.. Today I had a couple of random things thrown in.

      Work from 8-4:30 in front of my computer, doing CAD, making phone calls and sending emails
      Gym for an hour or so
      Helped a buddy move a couple things into his new place
      Played guitar for about 2hrs

      I guess the most exciting thing I did today was booked a flight to the Montreal Grand Prix in June!

      Went to work for 5 hours, picked up some stuff for the baby room, went to dinner with the girlfriend, got the oil on the Subby changed, confirmed my urologist appointment for tomorrow, napped 4 hours, woke up in intense pain and here I am- 5:25 AM and wide awake with throbbing pain.

      Spent the vast majority of the day breaking in our hotel room.

      I've got a bunch of high end vintage audio gear I'm clearing out, restored Marantz 4270 - better than new condition; Pioneer SX-5590, 8/10; Concept 16.5, 8/10 cosmetically - 10/10 function. Various high end vintage speakers: Rectilinear Research, AR, Kenwood, Infinity, McIntosh, Leslie 251. PM me for details, clearing out to finance home theater upgrade.

      went to the bank in the morning and sealed the deal on a DBP Mk4 R32, then went to work (currently second shift) until around 11:40pm, then stopped at the grocery store for a few things i didn't get last (too hung over). currently eating some spaghetti and waiting on my laundry to finish while watching Conan (TBS West Coast!).

      Also, what's your goal? See car stuff, or see historic Japan?

      The best way to travel is to get a JR pass: http://www.japanrailpass.net/eng/en001.html

      It's expensive up front, but it gives you unlimited access to their train system, including their bullet trains (with some limited exceptions), which is actually one of my favorite ways to travel.

      For a 1 week trip, I'd do something like:
      Fly into Tokyo
      Spend 2 days there
      Take Bullet train to Kyoto
      3 days in Kyoto
      Visit Osaka for a day (it's super close to Kyoto)
      Then head back towards Tokyo, but stop at Atami for a night of wonderful hot spring action.



      Feel free to email me for more detailed answers: colin@kcmachine.com

      Thanks for the info. That sounds like a good plan.

      I'll be there about 10 days. I'm not really into cars. I'll be there for a little business and then to explore and have some fun in the cities. It is several months away. I'll have plenty of time to do some research, but still might ask you for some recommendations later. Thanks
