:blob2: fire!!! Nate needs to make an illuminating working cannon next.

Actually, the bluff I was on took a barrage of cannon balls from the other side of the river during the war of northern aggression. I learned what really happened in the south while reading literature in the gift shop of maurice's pork barbeque.

Joey, I'm a lazy arse. I found that if I take pics in jpeg, I don't have to create new folders and export to jpeg every time I want to share pics via email, facebook, website, etc. I used asa 400 equiv, so these should be okay for electronic stuff and just annoy your print media people.

The photo's are not photo-shopped or altered, just aligned when needed, so they have plenty of manipulation in them.

I was going to say that second pic of the islander looked like a pic from a Unique add. Nice job Mikey, Looks like a nice bay there, it is going to be tough to trade that paradise for some frozen tundra! Oh well, we all gotta do what we gotta do.

Amen. My wife and kids are in for a shocker. I'm like Harrison Ford in Mosquito Coast.

Teaching aside, I'm sticking with a business plan, paying to have my truck stored in Anchorage, post cards in spring. If biz is slow, I'll haul my family around AK for the summer and camp. If my plan comes together, the ground will be thawed by early May, just in time for the school year to end and the lighting season to begin. We'll see. Not a big risk since my salary and health insurance continue through the summer.

I'm only afraid that my wife is going to see the whole thing suspiciously resembles a big fishing vacation.

Thanks--it's worth the effort to promote these plus other specialty fixtures/mounting, etc., I've been doing what Joey said, get images of stuff that separates you from the basic add-on guys.
