    Quick edit this arvo. Well short of the original. After losing it twice & more software crashes than I can imagine. After being totally over it & going from 13 to 1 song. Sorry for the mostly head cam job but rest & stills kept glitching out.

    Yeh think your on it tele but think it is backwards so mountains of big snow.
    Damo feel free to chime in.
    Klet nice indeed overhead in the morning hence the vid white outs.
    Sorry Brian no 80's. Was thinking of some wedding cake island for the Noosa vid to get in the mood for the chick in the turquoise thong.

    Yeah nah as they say in NZ, "daisetsuzan" literally translates to, "big snow(y) mountains". "Mountains of big snow" translated into Japanese is "oki na yuki no yama". The give away is "..no yama" which means "mountains of..". "Yama" and "san" are the "kun yomi" and "on yomi "readings of the kanji for mountains. In the case of "daisetsusan" the kanji "dai" or "big" refers to the mountains not the snow.
