System
Not much time to organize everything, so simple again! Reserve rooms 1 week before. Pay on the train from Shinjuku or at Ome station. We make a menu on the train and go shopping in groups for each dish/ drinks at Ome station. I pay at the register (done before and its the best way), get back on the train and deliver the stuff to the campsite using the campsite tractor cart.
Relax - go hiking ... after a couple of hours prepare for dinner.

People who don’t come on the train will have some other job to do- hard ones!
Also possible penalties.

Activities
Rock climbing at the Butress and Tenno Iwa.
Two or 3 different hikes organized by other people.

Things to Bring
Need warm clothes at night - bring a jacket or fleece, gloves and hat, thermal underwear (100yen shop).
OCJ women always seem to be cold at night!
Torch useful
Small bathing costume for bath
Things for cooking/eating, drinking.
Hiking gear or climbing gear if you join one of the events

More details later - please sign up ASAP.
