Arrived here at Kawaguchiko yesterday afternoon and got to work right away location scouting and trying to get a feel for the area. First time I have rented a car and driven around the area. You really have to drive and look at a map to understand and truly get to know an area of this size. The upcoming UTMF race will cover 160 kilometer of trails! Today I did a big loop around Mt. Fuji checking out and logging all the Aid Stations into my trusty Car navigation system. I feel like I am ready to drive the course at night now and still be able to find my way around!
