Hey friends. Been a while so I figured I should pop on here and say 'hi' to everyone. Hope all is well!

My wife traded her Countryman on a new four door Hardtop S. She's really liking it.

Doing well over here, wandrur. Wish I could say the same about the weather, though. Been very windy lately and I just don't sleep so well when it's like that.
I'm getting ready to head to my sister's place in TX for the holidays. Hoping to test drive a Paceman S All4 when I'm down there.

How are things on your side of the world?

I'd be enjoying every minute of that. Sure it's nice to be back in your own car, especially if that car is a MINI...but it's also quite nice to try stuff out that most of us here in the states will only read about.

Got any pics of any interesting cars you've seen or driven in Japan?

I do, but they're on my laptop at home (TDY to a different part of Japan right now). I'll post some up when I get home next week

Vivi! Wandrur! Everyone! Happy New Year!

Cool pics there, Mike. Glad I'm not the only one who takes pictures of cars when overseas. Sometimes I wish our importation laws weren't so strict. It would be nice to bring something different home. In my case, a Suzuki Jimny and Toyota Hilux would work quite nicely where I live.

Really? 2129 PAGES of random thoughts? That's pretty impressive. Is this sticky?

Yeah. Used to be a place where a bunch of us would just post random stuff on a daily basis...but it seems FB has replaced this thread.
