We made our way down some classic Okinawan back roads until we came upon Miyagi Junkyard... maybe that wasn't the real name, but they all seem to have names similar to that. As we found the Pajero "section" (ie. two old Pajeros), I noticed something that Matt has been wanting for pretty much as long as we've had the truck - one of those ladders that go on the back so you can climb up and use the roof-rack easier. It was attached to a decomposing Pajero with no wheels, but it was actually in pretty great shape!
Thrilled with our find, we then tried to haggle with the owners of the junkyard (who spoke no English of course). They apparently wanted Y3000 for it (about $34) which wasn't happening - mainly, because we didn't have that much yen on us. I'm still not sure what we ended up paying for it, but we just gave them whatever yen and dollars we could scrounge up out of my purse and Matt's car seats. After 20 minutes of haggling, removing it and reattaching to our Pajero, we now are the proud owners of a new-ish ladder!
Thanks for following!
