I don't have any aspirations of getting shots uploaded here but I wanted to share some shots from my Veterans Day weekend trip to Las Vegas and the Aviation Nation airshow. I just got my DSLR and am still learning so any feedback is appreciated. <table BORDER=0 width=2 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 ST...

RE: Continental 1713- 20 Years Later

I was 14 and watching football with my parents at our house just outside of Denver. It was a time before instant news, but if I recall right they did interrupt the game for breaking news. My church youth group leader was a mechanic for Continental at the time and was called in to help with the recov...

I just realized that I will be in Vegas this weekend. It's my wifes b-day and our anniversary so we are going to Vegas.

Any tips or insider info from any Vegas locals or those who have gone in years past?

Diff Between Black And Red Meatball

This may be a dumb question but I would like to know what the difference/significance of the black vs red meatball on the old Continental Airlines paint scheme. I am collecting 1/400 models of the airlines I rode on as a kid and I am not sure if I should be looking for the red or black meatball plan...

RE: Den-LAS-Den, First TP With Pics

It was typically 100 by 9am and while I was there the temp topped out at 115. If you ask me though I am not sure you can feel a difference between say 102 and 115.

The poker room at the Mirage on the other hand was a comfortable 68 degrees so you can guess where I was most of the time LOL

While I was anxious to participate in this forum and file a trip report from my recent trip to Vegas, I realize that from Denver, Las Vegas is a mere 1 hour and 20 minute flight. This does not leave much to report on. So I decided to use this trip report to focus on the significant difference betwee...

I have the K10D because I wanted the increased megapixels, but I looked long and hard at the K100D. I liked the shake reduction built into the camera vs the lens and the price can't be beat. Canon and Nikon are nice and have lots of accessories but IMHO you have to spend significantly more to get th...
