Lovin Japan ~ Suicide Ally

This is Suicide Ally.  I have discovered this route cuts time off my trip to base. One friend had his mirror clipped on this road. I know folks who pull their mirrors in at the start of Suicide Ally. I think of Christi L every time I ride on this road. She was the one who introduced me to this adrenaline rush. 

On either side of the road is an irrigation ditch like thing...small narrow concrete ditch. If your tires veer into this you will do damage to your vehicle.  This field to the left was a FOREST last year....

Look carefully at the width of the road...there are bikes on either side of the road and cars going both ways on the road.

Driving this road has provided many fun memories. I've made it a game to be able to face oncoming traffic without the natives of Misawa.  Last week an AMERICAN SIZE semi met us on this road - the DRIVER was sweating and flinching. I considered it a personal triumph to appear totally nonchalant. It was my true blood Japanese card. I belong.

When the snow melts....we discover the patch jobs from last year are in need of repair....big sink holes....amazing pot's a sign of spring.

Choosing Joy!
