    Favorite AA quote, "ahhhh crap-I forgot to close the shutter". What LF photographer hasn't said it?
    Thanks,
    Kirk

    Are you sure that wasn't a line from "Blue Velvet"?

    I understand you entirely. I actually use both terms, with differences of inflection, depending on if I see good images at a distance from the car... or if I'm tired from carrying gear to that more distant location. Your quote of "Further" is often said to me with excitement whereas my quote of "Farther?????" is often said in dispair.

    If you have been on a snipe hunt raise your hand!

    We also use to send out the new members of the Scout troop to ask other campers for bacon stretchers and left-handed smoke-shifters.

    O Gosh, Vaughn, we've got an REI store about eight blocks away. I've repeatedly sent people there for dehydrated water for their first backpack trip. I know people who work
    there, and yes, they do ask for it!

    Doesn't everybody have an REI eight blocks away? Just not the same since having to save my pennies for a mail order from Seattle.


    Reminds me, I need to order a new set of lederhosen.

    Okay. But, what if you drive that 500 yards??

    I wore a pair of lederhosen for backpacking for years in the Sierras (late 60's through the 70's) -- eventually the sweat off my back ate the leather. But they were great -- never had to worry about wearing out the butt. I did not wear the suspenders, though. I have another pair, but have not worn them. I should just to embarass my boys.
