Wow Jeff! Awesome plane meets awesome treatment. It was one of the first plastic models I ever built.

Thanks Wrei and Erich for the kind words. Tim; I saw a B-58 make a high speed pass at my father's base in October 1960. It was arriving for the annual airshow and those J-79's knocked my youthful socks off! My dad swears he has a photo of me standing next to the Hustler with my USAF hero Steve Canyon

Here is another unique airplane that I've become smitten with since I started making night visits to PASM.

Eddie Wrei, don't hesitate to give me a call if you have any questions on the D810. Very intuitive, except for that reverse lens attaching/detaching thingy (which it seems I will never learn). One thing to remember, and someone in the back of a lab with dual pocket protectors will have to explain it, the 800/810 does not like motion. Has something to do with the gazillion pixels paked on the sensor, but any tiny vibration when you're on the tripod seems to be magnified when you pixel peep. Zim and I noticed it and analyzed it to death, you know how two perfectionists can be, especially when one is as technically savvy as Zim. You'll also discover that, by a slight margin, our Canon's are less affected by iso settings of 400 and up. Not a big deal given the exceptional dynamic range of this camera. Please, no one tell Nikon that the D810 should sell for double what they are charging

Anyway, you'll flip over the camera. I can hardly wait for your first Texas landscape to get posted. Getting the 7DII was a great move, you will probably use that for much of your faster moving subjects. Do you have a 24 PCE on your list for Santa?

Given the volume of work that is before me on this particular trip, I'm pleased to say that Marriott is taking exceptional care of me, and the weather, except for my arrival day, has been Chamber of Commerce, and is forecast to stay that way. I wanted to bring my able assistant with me, but he couldn't miss that much school. His Mom told me tonight that he's been after her since I left to get him a plane ticket so he could come and help me. I have a feeling that Chandler is going to have a very profitable summer 2015.

I sent him a picture of my suite at the Marriott and I think he's chomping at the bit to join in the "fun?" BTW any of you who don't have favorite camera gear suppliers, Ramsey and Eugene at Competitive are people who will always have your back. I needed a couple more Nikon batteries and an additional charger (my current gear list includes 8 batteries and three chargers). I called at two yesterday and they were at my hotel by 8:30 this morning, I can always trust them to get me what I need, when I need it. When I have the D810 set up on wi-fi, it uses batteries like a 427 Chevelle drinks Premium. Worth it though.

Thanks Jim! I have been reading the manual in preparation. I see they use buttons (there must be a million of 'em!) for many of the functions Canon hid in the menu, such as mirror lock up, live view, etc.. The AF is quite an upgrade for me, but it is making sense. I have also been reviewing the 7D II manual. I see a few AF functional upgrades in the 7D II which should bring it up to be similar with the D810. I think my head is hurting from all the data input in the last couple of weeks of research But they tell me it is good for old guys to stimulate their brain every once in a while...

Been traveling a lot lately, only at my desk 4 1/2 of the previous 25 business days. Did get to see some new sights in Germany and Hungary though. Budapest is just a beautiful city at night. Had a chance to go for a walk one night and this is a photo of the Danube River with Budapesti T÷rtÚneti M˙zeum or Budapest History Museum in the background. Think I need to take Clara on a Danube river cruise through Germany, Austria, and Hungary one of these days.

Surprised JR is smiling, he just found out that his healthcare was cancelled, and his premium doubled under "affordable healthcare" along with his deductible going to six grand.

Those thinking of a river cruise should stop thinking and book. We went from Vienna to Amsterdam in May 2013. Wonderful trip unpacking once, very relaxing way to travel.

Thanks to Jay for pointing this out on FB. For anyone with even a passing interest in the weather, this website is all kinds of awesome...

Layers, forecast animations, color coding, multi-touch zoom and drag, you name it: the designers nailed it.

I have gotten numb to forecasting after all these years I look up and if it looks like this, it's a nice day for the moment
