Pickup Car Tomorrow

Pickup Car Tomorrow

I pickup the car tomorrow.  Knowing this has quelled my anxieties a bit.  Tomorrow night I start putting stuff in the rental car.  We leave on Monday for Route 66.

Our networking meeting today was a wash.  Our speaker didn’t show up.  The cage needs rattling again.  If you live in West Wayne County, or anywhere close, consider joining us.  It is a great way to find new clients and customers.

Packing

Progress is made.  I found a couple of missing batteries.  The other memory cards appeared. My missing battery pouch were under a protective padding in my camera bag.  As a result, things are looking better.

Many of the bags require better organization.  Right now, things are thrown in and not organized.  Elizabethe is really good at doing that stuff.  Perhaps we’ll watch a show while she organizes bags.

Unlike going on a normal trip, we need to bring power strips, various chargers, USB cords, laptops, in addition to our camera equipment.  My camera bags are fairly organized.  The bags with the cords and miscellaneous stuff are my concern.

Lego Lens Keeper

I am gluing lego lens keepers to my tripods.  Basically, you glue a Lego to your lens caps and tripods.  When you remove a lens cap, you attach it to the Lego.  As a result, you do not lose your lens cap while shooting.

The idea isn’t mine.  I saw it in a magazine years ago.  I am just getting around to implementing it.

As an added bonus, it covers the camera logo on the lens caps.  Why advertise for a company that isn’t compensating you in some degree.

John Kidd

I called my friend John Kidd.  We talked for a while.  He’s making pens and I told him he can have all the black walnut he wants.  I also have maple and who knows what else.

He asked if I could bring a chunk as I pass through that area.  If we have room in the car, I will.  It can be cool to have a pen made from wood from my property.

We talked about working in the temple, things that don’t change based on where you live, and other stuff.  Of course, we talked about camera stuff.  He joked that he was told he needed a hobby, as if photography wasn’t enough.
