It seems Sandi you found what make me who I am. I'm more at home in the forest then anywhere less. Ingrained deep in my blood. I also invented a hot water system that you could create a hot tub wherever there was water. Taking many bath in the forest even in the snow. The faces of other hikers as they pass by in their snow shoe seeing us setting there only in shorts is priceless. This is an amazingly beautiful shot Sandi but I was wondering if the Japanese call the forest bathing "Shinrin Yokin", what is the Japanese term and meaning for Dwight Yoakam ? As the Japanese seem to have a term for everything :o) Like / Favorite

Sandi Mikuse replied:

LOL! Hey, Ken, I hope you have patented your mobile hot tub idea! Sounds great! :)))) I am not sure what the Japanese call Dwight Yokam...do you think they have even heard of him?!!!!! Great to see you stop by, by the way my friend! :)
