Hometown: Yokohama, Japan
August 3, 2011
I'm originally from Yokohama, Japan. 65+ years old and I have three grown children, three granddaughters, and two granddogs.
It has been over six months since I joined this club. I wanted to thank a few people that made this experience life-changing: Thanks to Rose Cupelli for finding this group for me; Thanks to Diego for helping me during my second hike in DC (without his kindness I may not have continued); Last but not least, thanks to Kellie for doing a wonderful job organizing and leading different hikes for the group.
I like a little bit of everthing: sneaker walks, trail-blazing, scrambling...I love it all! My goal is to participate in strenuous hikes that are rewarded with gorgeous views and amazing experiences.
Broken ankle ouch! I broke my right ankle two years ago falling off my bike, LOL! But I was back in the saddle after 8 weeks, then I trained for five weeks for the Seagull Century. Cycling is one of the best rehab you can do for your ankle because it has no impact. Get well and hope to see you soon.

Thanks for joining GII, if you are looking for some great cycling rides in this area you have joined the right group. Hope to see you soon on our rides.
Hi Yoshi! It was good to see you again yesterday. I joined the meetup group you recommended and am "preparing" to do the bike ride next week! I'm looking forward to it. Thanks for the info :)
You won't need any tools. Trail is not as littered as I feared.
Hi Yoshi, It was great meeting you yesterday! You are lots of fun and full of adventure!! See you at the next meetup!
よしこさん！メッセージありがとうございます！また来週Rock Creek Parkでお会いできますよ！楽しみにしていますね！
Welcome to Washington Kayak Club. Most of our meetups have ended for the season, but some of us paddle all winter with wet suits or dry suits. Your kayak will do great on most of our meetups (just a few meetups per year require a longer sea kayak). Let us know how we can help you. So glad you can join us!
It was fabulous meeting you today- can't wait to see you again!
