Ughhh, quick story for those who need to kill a minute or two...

So I'm at work and am driving a forklift for quite a ways sort of on a road that just goes out into the middle of nowhere (forest, fields...etc)...

and there to my right on a fence is a beautiful red-tailed....oblivious to my big 10k all-terrain forklift...30 feet away at the most....would have posed nicely for the camera I'm sure of it....

then a little later I pass by a large collection of rain water from the day prior in a large grass clearing and there is a lone egret with the sun rising behind it, not even 100% above the horizon yet.

I need to pick up a small camera case (kata maybe?) and just carry the thing everywhere from now on....i really hate missing stellar shots like that :(

thanks for reading, carry those cameras w/you!

Where can I get an off road forklift?
Mine keeps getting stuck in the drains.

Ah man, I remember those. I've driven those before. I also got to drive the smaller version, but I can't locate a picture of it. I don't even remember what those things were called.

I drive one of those at my Guard Unit from time to time. That is a Deere btw. We just call them 10K forklifts. When you sit in the cab of that thing and gun the throttle....WOW.
