Day at the Track

7 posts in this topic

I haven't posted too much lately, but I was able to get out today with the camera. More action photos. A couple of horses racing to the line. It was fun and a bit challenging today.

That's cool YF. I had thought about going there but wasn't sure if you could get in with your equipment. What lens did you use?

They didn't even check my bag at all. I had my 70-300 VR on the camera hand held. The races go by quick though. I was shooting raw, but that filled up the memory fast. Next time I think I'll shoot in JPEG to keep the camera from slowing as quickly. There is plenty of time between races to evaluate settings and make changes.

Here's one more at the line, a real photo finish wink

Another great shot. You could do double duty there. Maybe win enough money to buy some new equipment. I don't have that kind of luck so I usually stay away from those kinds of places.

Thanks for sharing

Thanks for the comments. I think the biggest bet we placed was a whopping 240, that's 2 dollars and 40 cents. Most of the bets were about 2 bucks with one winner picked that won 9 dollars. All in all over nine races we lost about 5 dollars.

    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....      
    • I am saying if you go mudding or off-roading you will plug any of the drain holes they could put in there anyway. Not much different from the weep holes they put in the rear fenderwells and rockers of trucks.  I suppose it may have benefit to those who stay on pavement.
    • They put holes in the sides of the frame, so salt and mud could get in, but no holes in the bottom so they could drain, so not sure if that was planned, or just p*ss poor engineering.  They probably didn't really care as long as they outlasted the warranty period.        
    • Drain holes just end up getting plugged with mud and debris anyway.
