Para-Sking...

7 posts in this topic

"If" I had more time & energy, this is one sport that I would jump into in a heart beat!

I shot this via my newly obtained Canon 500/f4. The shoreline in the background is approximately four miles away! The guy Para-sking was out approximately a 1/2 mile.

The lens set me back a ton, but I know I'll get many hours of enjoyment in return.

Hmm, 500/F4 or Snow Sailing gear?... Hmm Sharp images or broken Arms, I think I would have bought the 500 also. Looks like a sweet lense. Does that have IS and USM etc?

Thanks all for the comments! Yes Paul, she comes fully loaded! I did some significant reach between the 500 & 600. Besides an extra 2,000 clams for the 600, the 500 has plenty of advantages and is one hecava lens!

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.   
    • I put a few miles on this weekend as well. Out on the lake and back a few times. But, I was about a mile out!
