It's a mystery.

I'm kinda bitter. I was asked by my sister at the last minute to put up a photo booth at her reception. As it was a family function, I rigged up a foot switch which would allow anyone to walk in and take a photo. Her friends are all artists from around the country, so this was set up for their benefit. On going through the photos of about 600 photo's, 25% of them contain pictures of one 11 y.o. niece. And it would appear that she was hogging the booth so others weren't free to walk in and get a couple of snaps. I would find 25 shots of her then 1 shot of a guest, them another series with her. I'm upset that she probably denied many guests the opportunity to utilize the booth, and it made it appear as a kids toy. I'm at a loss ...

That's rather annoying!

An 11 year old should know better, parents should supervise better, and other family members should say something. Not to beat on anyone I don't know, but that's unfortunate for you and others.

I wouldn't be too hard on her. It sounds more like being a 11 year old kid bored out of her minds and she was using the booth when others weren't.

It's a foot switch for a tattoo machine. It has a normally open switch like the Canon remote, so I just put a 2.5mm connector on it. I also purchased a 12' extension cord with the correct ends to give me the distance to the camera. It worked great.

I said, what's up? He said "nothing much", turned around and quickly disappeared into the brush.

Maybe he thought you were hitting on him, and wanted you to follow. You mighta missed out, fella.

Super jealous!!

Someday I will get to go interior camping. Algonquin National Park is relatively close by and is the destination to head to for interior trips. I just don't have the friends willing to go.
As much as I love canoes, I would want to be in a kayak.

My wife has been going on about using a kayak, and on this trip my brother brought one, so needing another kayak my wife jumped at the chance to use one. Her brother did half the paddling with me, then my wife gladly traded with him for the last half.

My tandem canoe is just as fast as a single kayak, can carry more gear which is all more accessible, and for me is WAY more comfortable. I can put my knees up, stretch my legs straight out, or kneel if I want. There is a reason that as folks age, then tend to canoes more and more. :)

We had some interesting clouds but no rain the other day, made for a dramatic sunset.

Cool looking skies.

Canoes and kayaks both have their benefits and downfalls. Canoes definitely excel at carrying gear, keeping everything accessible, and having more flexibility. Plus the ability to carry the all important four legged travelling buddy. I do love canoes. But, as a single person, a kayak would get more use. There is lots of water around here, and I'd love the ability to just go and explore. I like the low seating of a kayak, and I prefer the paddling. Ideally, I'd have both.

We are looking for a canoe. I actually like to use a long kayak paddle for canoeing. It's much more efficient and easier than switching sides. This (external link)is the one we have an eye out for. Seen some used ones for about $300

I dislike seeing canoes and kayaks left abandoned in people's yards. Right now I'm working part time for a friend and at one location where we cut the lawn, there is a nice canoe in the backyard. Judging by the amount of dirt on it, it hasn't been in water in way too long.
A friend of mine has a cedar strip canoe that he rarely uses. It could use some work to get it back into really nice condition. Several years ago I borrowed it early in the summer and kept it for a few months. Problem with it was it was too heavy for one person to lift onto the top of a truck.

I'd like to have a canoe to take out with a friend, the dog, gear, etc. But I would get more use out of a kayak. Being so close to the lake, the river, lots of small rivers/big creeks, and small lakes/reservoirs, I have endless areas to explore. Don't have to plan out big trips, just head to the lake after work for an hour.

I live close to a rather large lake as we.. The water is actually only 500 feet from the house but the first portage area is a few blocks away.

That is nice and close. Get/make a cart for it and just walk to the water. 4 kms down the road there is easy enough access to Bear Creek. It's fairly big and goes right through Petrolia. I want to paddle it.
