HokkaidoWilds.org author Chris explains that “the novel corona virus had not been kind to my body. I landed into KIX for some business meetings, maybe not carrying the full Covid-19, but certainly a solid Covid 8 ½ on my waistline.”
The pressure and obligation he felt towards skiing the tens of meters of Niseko powder snow was weighing on his mind.
“The idea of slogging, trudging, plodding; one ski touring boot-ski in front of the other, hundreds… and hundreds of vertical meters up into the hills felt such a stretch from bumming about on the couch watching Anthony Fauchi re-runs for the past couple of years,” he explained.
Therefore, here at HokkaidoWilds.org, we had been discussing for some time the ways in which we might revolutionize and diversify the audience here at HokkaidoWilds.org.
We would look to broaden the site to encompass new audiences by embracing a panoply of new perspectives from across the political and recreational spectrum. An all new, mixed demographic, less excited by our more traditional low-impact human powered adventures in the Hokkaido Wilds.
Rather we would aim to deliver content that we know will appeal to those committed to the wholesale embrace of all that is modern, a section of the site to lay itself upon the alter of hydrocarbon enhanced activities, from [motor]bikes to snow[mobiles], jet skis, jet boats, jet packs (if we can get our hands on one) and [budget permitting] some jet A-1 fueled flying squirrels; a section we would entitle “Braaaap”.
This all-new content- and mechanization-rich section of HokkaidoWilds.org will be live shortly. We hope to see you (and hear you) in the hills!
@ROB – TODO (as of 31 Mar)
Can we delete these photos below? I added them in the draft post but need to delete before going live. Not sure how to do that. Cheers mate – Chris.
@CHRIS – Roger that. They probably make us look like amateurs, so I’ll make sure to get rid of them before going live on the 1st! – Rob
