    Thanks, Ron.
    My favorite are the one with me on the CAT and on my uncle's 430.
    I like the looks of the older Challengers with the flat track better than the newer ones.

    My question is why did Ron buy a underwater camera :laugh:

    What are you doing Ron going for a swim at public pools in Surrey :hammerhead:

    "Oh how I love to go swimmin' with bow legged women and swim between their legs, swim between their legs........."

    It's actually better for on the job site where it might get wet from rain or dusty, if it can survive a 10 foot deep plunk in the water, it should survive a little bit of West Coast liquid sunshine.
    I've been playing with it all afternoon, it really brings out my eyes. :laugh:

    if I can't find anything to do tomorrow, then I'll go out when the weather clears and grab some shots from my favourite view point.
    It's just a bit bigger than a credit card:

    $215 CAN, I saved $15.00 on the sticker price because I bought from Ontario through Ebay, the local camera store had these models here for $215 before tax.

    I love the zoom, it's still sharp and clear, but you can't zoom while in the video mode, that sucks, but it's still sharp.
    I have a video uploading currently of Dad's truck unloading at the road, and I am in the house, a distance of 130 feet, and the quality is still sharp.

    That isn't a bad price I thought you spent a good chunk of money. What you spent on the camera is less that what you used to spend in 5 minutes at the old Drake Hotel in East Van :laugh:

    I'am not into the video fetish. I watch you tube vids thou like Davids Farm and Corvairwild. On Davids farm its interesting. Also watch Pooter vids when I need a laugh. I don't even own a camera I need to borrow one if I take pictures.

    Then we have Wolfman Jack ie Ron Dejong

    For a good laugh any of these 3 guys are great: DominicFear, makemebad35, or the Gradualreport. A lot of their videos make little or no sense, basically their just random crap, (The swear a lot and can be a bit dirty) but they are hilarious!
    The Gradualreport is kinda an informative show but he does it in a hilarious way.
    Ron and me both think he's hilarious! *Note: The GR is suspended for a second time, under almost definitely stupid reasons, and his videos are currently unavailable to watch:(*

    Gravel Rat, Dave's Farm is about 50 miles from where I live. They are all nutbars. They make the local news once in awhile.
