25 Feb., 2010 -- I wanna go, too!

Two C172 camera ships refueled, I can't reveal who they work for or where they're going every day, just that Matt and Andy are shooting aerial photos. They have some "expensiver-than-mine" big name medium format digital cameras and a boatload of computer gear.

Cushy job, the pilots just fly a grid, throw a switch, and it all turns on and shoots automatically.
They are on a mission that could last about eight months to complete. It's similar to the contracts that I used to fly for the state with George H., except we used 35mm cameras and film rolls of 250 shots of slides.

23 Feb., 2010 -- Travelers everywhere

She'll be coming 'round the mountain when she comes...
Springfield's new 60-65 interchange.

There must be a gazillion snow geese pausing near Schell City.
Heading north?

Yesterday, INCOMING!

And Fonda made it to Michigan
. So did her baggage, finally.

21 Feb., 2010 -- Spring coming?

Crocus and daffodils are sprouting in this park near the Art Gallery
on National Avenue in Springfield.

I don't know what this one will be. Is spring on its way?

Found this beaded scorpion travel bug in a geocache
in Seymour on the way to Springfield yesterday.
It was made by Huichol Indians who are native to
the central Mexican state of Zacatecas. I'll put it
in one of my caches in town, then another cacher will
pick it up. Its goal is to return home someday.
I posed it with some of my old Mexican pottery.
