Nicely done. My wife and I spent an afternoon in Bodie late July this year. Really enjoyed it as it wasn't too busy. Surprised there weren't more people there.

My wife and I were there 3 weeks ago and there was so much smoke in the air that the Tetons were only a faint silhouette. Did get a couple of pics of the barn.

Ah...what memories you're bringing back. I only had the "pleasure" of a launch (no landings) the day I left the carrier in a C2A COD (carrier onboard delivery) heading for Clark AFB, then on Travis AFB, then on to Treasure Island for discharge.

Yep, there was always something exciting happening on the flight deck. I was on USS Oriskany, CVA-34, and I watched a bundle of flight ops. Forgot about flight deck being wood. Think it was teak wood if I remember correctly.

I had no idea you were so young! Must be the grandfatherly thing. Nothing better than holding a bundle of joy. My wife and I just had a 4-day "sleep over" (at their house) with our 2 grandchildren (5 yr old Sydney & 3 yr old Cooper) while parents were out of town celebrating their anniversary.

She's gorgeous!! Can I hold her? Babies are so cuddly and smell so good (most of the time). It's great having a new granddaughter. I have a 5 year old "princess" (won't be another in our family). Hard to believe Claire is 13.

Yep, we had a maytag washer and 2 rinse tubs on the back porch. My brother and I had to fill everything with the garden hose, and yes, my brother caught his fingers in the wringer once, and only once. Guess he was a fast learner. :lol:

A "What Should I Do" Thread

I agree with renting a lens or two before you go just to see what you want. Last September I rented a couple of lenses from Camera Lens Rental (from IN if I remember correctly) for a 2-week trip through Utah. They had good prices and super service. I contacted them mid-trip to ask for an extension and it was not problem at all. Not driving a "Fit" to AK? Just kidding, remember from Steves Digital forum that you drove one. Enjoy your trip.

Thanks for sharing Dewman, seeing these photos really brings some fond memories. My ship (USS Oriskany, CVA-34) had a fair number of A-1's. I spent a lot of my free time on some of the upper levels watching take-offs and landings.

I'm 99% sure that I'm getting a K-3ii by the end of this year, and was thinking that new ones will probably be gone. If they are, I'll pick up a used one. You're right that there should be more in the market place by that time.

I'm thinking very seriously about a K-3ii (currently shooting 8 year old K-20D), and I am disappointed that K-3ii was officially discontinued. Guess I better make a decision before they are all gone.

Sorry so late in replying. Been laid up with a nasty cold (but thankfully no flu). I came aboard the Oriskany as soon as she returned for repairs. Repairs were made at Hunters Point Ship Yard and repairs took about 5-6 months (I think) and most of the crew was assigned to other local activities. I was assigned to Armed Forces Police (mixture of AF, Navy & Marines) at Alameda Naval Air Station and we covered Oakland area and San Francisco area. Those of us assigned to patrol Oakland were required to spend our free time in SF and vice versa. Rationale was for us not to fraternize clubs and bars that we patrolled. Worked fine for me as I got to spend a lot of time in SF. As soon as repairs were completed we headed back to Yankee Station in Tonkin Gulf. We were on station when Forrestal caught fire. For the most part, I enjoyed my Naval service. Got out 2 months early so I could go back to college.
