New Camera


I bought the Cannon Rebel XTi, 10.1 megapixels. Things didn't work out for me to head up north today so Sunday I'll be giving it a good try out. I have 10 days to decide to keep it or return it and try out the new Nikon that's coming out this weekend.

It's good to report that my injury has been upgraded from "really ugly" to "better, but far from pretty" by my therapist. Believe me I tried to get the go ahead from both the Dr. and Physical Therapist to start exercising but both have said just rest...don't use it. They're most likely right judging by the way it feels. The prime paddling is passing by right now but if I push it I might miss more than just the begining of the season and that would be bad. I'm really stoked to try this new camera out! The only down side to it is that it's not waterproof and days like today just won't do. My waterproof is due back from being repaired next week. I did notice that Olympus has a new waterproof out that's 7 megapixels and waterproof to 22 feet.

Hey Nora,
I hope that pinched nerve heals up soon. My father had a really bad pinched nerve about a year ago. He could hardly walk. I think he ended up recieving cordizone injections to decrease the inflamation and pain. What worked best for him was rolling around on an excercise ball to stretch out his back. I hope you manage to clear that up soon. Until then, enjoy your new camera.

By the way, I bought a Jackson All-Star a few weeks back. I paddle a really easy river 2 weeks ago, and the boat performed great. It was unbelievably easy to roll. I'll get to do a full test next week during my week long kayaking adventure in Murchinson, NZ. There are 15-20 class 2-4+ runs within an hour of eachother. Apparently its a kayaking Mecca. I should have the blog/pictures up 2 Sundays from now.
Anyway, take care of that back. I'll see you in a few months.

Hey Ben!
Good to hear from you. I've been checking your blog...looks like you're having a blast! Looking forward to the kayaking shots!
They figure 2 more weeks and then maybe paddling. I'll heal fast...and hopfully without cortisone.
