The missus and I finally got a chance to do something for us today, so took a trip to Duluth to see the air show. Clicked about a thousand, and haven't had a chance to go through everything, but quickly picked a few to give Dan a little taste. All with the Canon 40D and 100-400 mm. ISO 400, and had Tv set at 1/1600.

Cool for lil' ol' me, great stuff Ken. I heard it was a bit wet up there Saturday. Looks like Sunday was the day to go! The Angels shots are fantastic especially the last one! And of course the Bulldogs F-16.

Looks like a great day to be doing two of my favorite things...photography and flying! Throw in a fishing trip on the river and you could make it a perfect day! Thanks Ken!

NIce Angels Pics. No Air show in Fargo this year for some reason so I kinda missed out since I am not going to Osh Kosh this year.

.......so sad... ^$#%^4doller gallon@#$@%^...70doller campsites%^*&%^&*lost my seat in a restored conny$%^&*&%.....

Nice Shots though with that 100-400. I have some good shots I took before I bought my 100-400L from last year. I am going to have to dig them up and see what I was missing from last year with my normal zoom.

    • Moved my fan today  cut heat up time in half very noticeable improvement 
    • Well, she's still right, you know..
    • Went out pheasant hunting today and ran into a trapper setting 330s along a creek for beaver .  I'm not much into trapping but know how these things work, and after having a civilized conversation with him his were all in the water and he let know where they were located so at least the pooch wouldn't get his leg caught in it. don't feel bad, he hasn't caught much either . 
    • That may be, but it sounds a lot like "I didn't get a job" butthurt.  That grifter would be singing the praises of Trump's genius if she was on the payroll.   Eh, why not?  When they aren't taking credit for things they had nothing to do with, they are taking blame for things they had nothing to do with. Pence is still the governor of Indiana
    • sounds like from animals that eat meat. 
    • Huh?  Sorry,  I should have known better.
    • Great idea, have you looked into what it would take? 
    • I think what fish meant was it might not hurt to allow more than 60 days for a season in states like MN.   When the birds are late we can still have a chance at the northern birds.  If freeze up and the flights are early, the longer season won't matter.  There won't be much if anything to shoot.   I get what you're saying about lengthening the gap, but that's a roll of the dice since we have little chance of knowing when freeze up will get those late birds moving.  How long do you make the gap?   After a year in my new area of the state I can adjust my expectations and chase more wisely next year.  This year I was anticipating much better.  I think that's the worst part - the big push being the big let down.
    • Wool socks are a must, they insulate even if wet. Cotton socks in any warm boot will make your feet cold. The warmth of the boot while you are active make your feet sweat. I have the LaCross Iceman from a couple decades ago, still no need to go buy something different.
    • Some wild meat can have trichinosis.  Domestic pork no longer has it. I'm pretty sure that venison doesn't have a parasite issue.
