So I begin in a few minutes the final phase of my journey into the heart of darkness of Japan. Fukushima. I have no regrets or doubt about going. I took yesterday to reflect and do my last minute preparations. I am ready... 4 months of intense training, 3 months of taking supplements from Planet Minerals to counter radiation, Geiger Counter generously provided by International Medcom to measure radiation (and I have been taking measurements everywhere I go), Light weight insect repellant clothes from Exofficio, Water purifier, Maps and clothing from Distant Lands, Samys Camera, Sans Disk, LowePro and Fleet Street Sports for helping make the walk a little easier on my feet. Lastly to Mrs. Koike andthe supportive Staff at the Kitano Arms in Tokyo. All these people and companies have made this moment possible. I couldn't ask for more.
I am ready. Thank you for reading my blog. See you all back in Tokyo.
