- I'll be picking up a monopod around lunch today (not from Adorama, though... I don't have time to drive to NY :-) I've been thinking about getting one for a while, but it should come very much in handy with the kind of shots I'm hoping to get of the falls.
- 8 days until I leave, and it seems like most everything is ready. All I really have to do at this point is pack, which is what I'll be spending most of the 4th doing.
As for non-trip-related stuff...
- A backpack for work should be arriving tomorrow, and my aging back is thanking me already. The bag that I currently have, which was inherited from the company I was working for before NCR bought it, is quite heavy (certainly heavier than 3.4lbs) and having longer to walk from the car to my cube only makes that worse.
- Someone that I didn't really expect to hear from, an old friend that I used to work with and later fell out of touch with, emailed me yesterday. He found me through my shareware site, which is interesting because he's partially responsible for the name :-)
