Pulled the trigger

5 posts in this topic

Thanks to all who chimed in when I was asking about different lenses. I pulled the trigger and ordered a Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.5-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom from Canoga. It is backordered, but should get sent out Monday or Tuesday.

This lens is one that fit the budget most comfortably. That will leave a little extra for my youngest daughter's 14th birthday, Father's Day, and hubby's 40th - all this month. smile

Again, thanks for all the input!

Cool deal, chicks! Have fun with the new tool. And golly, with all those events coming up, you'll have a lot to use that tool on!

Congrats on the new toy. I'll be anxious to see what kind of shots you get with it. BTW, how did things go for you at the piano recital a few weeks ago?

I forgot to mention the reason hubby gave the green light. He is testing for his master's degree (4th degree) black belt in Tae Kwon Do at the end of June. The spectators are encouraged to take pictures. I usually am a nervous wreck watching him test, so this will be a good diversion. smirk

Woo Hoo! I just received notification that my new lens was shipped today. Now it will be like anticipating Christmas until it gets here! grin

X-tackleman- the piano recital went ok. The lighting was horrible, though. Black curtain within a foot of a black grand piano, students with blonde hair wearing black shirts, and one with black hair and a white shirt. I am not nearly experienced enough to know how to change settings on the fly. I'll post a couple in a new thread.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. 
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
