Thanks Dave and Crew. My first ever mini article ;-) Its a "buzz" and I am enjoying these new buzz experiences.

Snake pictures inbound buddy! When I get over my British fear of rattlers! Cannot wait to get confident enough to shoot them... on digital film only.

Peace n love folks.

I've had the pleasure of camping with Chris on several occasions. He's funnier than he thinks he is in all reality...just don't accuse him of being an Englishman!
