Getting ready for winter
Today I switched the car tires on two cars to winter tires, the studless ones. I didn’t know this was a thing until I came here, it had just never crossed my mind and I also hadn’t owned a car before.
It’s funny how many things we just don’t realise are a thing because of our experiences. It’s also a good reason why we should travel.
This is but a small part of getting ready for winter. For us, it’s about the biggest thing to do besides switching to a winter wardrobe and clearing up things outside. That and getting used to digging and driving on metres of snow (no exaggeration).
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.
I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.
On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
