VDI and Mt Fuji
Both components of the previous VDI and TK mountain teams were in Japan for the IRMMW-THz Conference in Nagoya and had the pleasure (!) of climbing Mt. Fuji in a storm with winds >50 km a hour. So it was not surprising that we were all soaked through when we arrived at the summit:
Left to right...Lucy Wylde, Jeffrey Hesler, Tom Crowe and Richard Wylde.... Lucy had sensoble boots and dry feet.... the other not so lucky.
There is a Japanese proverb about climbing Mt. Fuji: “He who climbs Mt. Fuji is a wise man; he who climbs twice is a fool.”
