    The horror!

    I think you mean "older"
    I usually only use elderly in conjunction with frail.

    Try 70's. Real elderly. I was mighty impressed and have something to aspire to. They were looking to get ice cream afterwards, my kind of crowd.

    There's just something about "elderly" that doesn't work here. Can't quite put my finger on it let alone articulate it.

    I usually feel like i should give someone more than 5 minutes notice before asking 'em to do something. but I was working on a paper and couldn't stand it anymore and threw the boat on the car to be doing something else.

    when in Costa Rica, I was talking to a guy that runs a kayak touring business half the year in Costa Rica and the other half the year up in Canada... and he was saying that one of the things he loved about sea kayaking, was that it was a sport that he knew he could do well into his 90's (he had lots of elder/older/elderly clients)...

    Of course, if I'm 90 & still paddlign, my boat better weigh 15 lbs.

    Well they certainly weren't acting elderly, but under any age-based system, they would be described as such. They were impressed by the Hullavator. It makes friends wherever it goes!

    New camera is here!

    This may be the first time I've read the manual to anything, but I want to make sure I seal this thing up right! I'm going Sunday to a place I've been wanting to paddle for a while, so I'm very excited to try it out. First impressions: Yes, it's a bit on the bulky side, but not horrendous. And I think it starts up faster than my old Coolpix S600, and that thing was fast! Controls are seemingly well layed out and I think it has quick access to every setting I'd want. Of course, the real test will come Sunday.

    Camera Test

    and what I learned.

















    I learned I hate this thing. It's only good if you're shooting all underwater.
    I am going back to my Pelican case.
    Bah.
    ETA- I forgot to say I was using something similar to this

    Some of those pictures are good. Others not so much.

    I just ordered a case for my dslr to use while kayaking - I have a feeling it's going to have similar results, but I'll try it - I'm boggled as to what to do with seacaves.

    Can you return it?

    What kind of camera is it for? It may be time for a new higher-megapixel underwater camera.

    Oh, nevemind. I was able to get the link to load finally, and the housing won't work for diving (obviously.)

    Too bad it isn't what you want...the camera takes good pictures.
