MAN ON A DESERTED ISLAND -- Waiting for the Three Girls at Maeda Flats to Come Rescue Him

Well, this is another fine mess I've gotten myself into. Where in the heck are those three girls I met at Maeda Flats the other day ?

 

I called them on my cell phone and asked them to come up to this deserted mountain road and save me from myself...and they PROMISED to get back to me.

 

COPY OF THEIR TEXT MESSAGE REPLY :

 

"....You want us to WHAT ? Uh-huh.... yeah... right. Ummm.... uhhh...Listen, we'll get back to you...."

 

Jeez.. I'm still waiting for them to get back to me. Where in the heck are they ???

This road-slide / washout occurred on the road connecting Highway 58 at OKUMA, and the main OKUNI-RINDO [Forest Road] above HIJI FALLS.

 

I have posted a similar type of washout that happened about 4.5 miles (6.5 km) to the south HERE :

Both that photo and the one above show road-slide damage that occurred on Saturday, August 26th, 2012 when the powerful eye of TYPHOON BOLAVEN (Japanese Typhoon #15) passed over this area.
