Well, today I took the old beater camera and headed out for a bike ride. This shot was taken at the mile 20 mark. Wish I could take my good camera. Weird not having control over the shutter speed, the focus or the aperture. I rode from Big Rapids to Reed City and back. Got all the way to RC and just about crashed into a 1960's Camero. Seams they were having a car show and it was on rails to trails! I rode around for a little, some sweet cars showed up. I then rode east and saw a sign for the Crossroads 5k. I was not happy. Wished I would have had my Nike's with me. Reed City is a smaller town, and I was thinking there would not be a lot of runners. Maybe I could finish in the top 20, if only 20 showed up! But since I had no running shoes I road south to the truck. This 10 mile stop was a very boring place, well unless you like pictures of pioson ivy! So I sat the camera down and snapped this shot. I'll work on getting better! This camera has been all over the country. Dropped on Mount Si, kicked down a steep rock cover hill called Mount Rainer. It has survived Geo-Caching the the 100+degree heat of San Antonio Texas. So I was shocked it actuly worked. It is hard to get use to. Going from a camera that will take a picture within one second of being turned on, also taking 6-8 pictures a second. This Kodak CX4230 takes like 30 seconds to turn on and will take about 2 pictures a minute. I LOVE my DSLR. Ok, it's time to take the family out to eat. See ya tomorrow. LIVESTRONG. Oh Ya Congrats to Lance for winning the Leadville race.

    Yep, once you get a Dslr no other camera will ever compare unless you get a newer dslr to play with ;). Really wish I would have made it to San antonio when you were there speaking of which, when you gonna come back to Texas and come hunting with me.
