Camping in parks, on beaches and other semi-legal spots up and down Japan for more than 10 years.
Has biked, hiked, boated and otherwise locomoted through 40 countries across 6 continents (including an illegal entry into Vietnam that, surprisingly, did not end in a prison cell).
Used to cycle and travel like crazy, now has his hands full with 3 small children who keep demanding to be fed.
Favorite spots in Japan include coastal campgrounds in Hokkaido, a ramen shop in Fukushima City and any mountain with a trail.
