There really are no keys. You just kind of stick a flat head screwdriver into the ignition and wiggle it around a little until it catches. Sometimes you have to give the starter a good whack with a hammer if it won't turn over.

Oh, and by the way, I realize we lost yesterday...in that kind of rain, whaddya' gonna' do...

You guys have fun on y'alls trips....I'm jealous...
I second the JVC Hard Drive camera. Very small, very light. The DVD burn that Fed mentions is available as an accessory if you can't find one that comes with it. I pull all of my videos onto my computer and edit them before I burn copies.
I got mine online, I think it was butterflyphoto.com for around $300. Of course, a brick and mortar store will usually charge a bit more. I did hear reports of poor battery life with the standard battery, so I got a higher capacity one right away.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that, I did the same thing, the aftermarket battery works very well though!

We also have the Everio camera but don't have the direct to DVD burner since I also like to edit before burning. Problem is that I can play the video direct from the camera and it looks good. But when I burn to DVD using the Cyberlink software, the quality just isn't the same. What software are you using to edit and burn?

In between, we have to purchase and pack up all of our provisions for the trip. 2 weeks in Florida, and the drive home, arriving sometime around Sunday the 25th. Then on Haloween, it's another drive 3 hours north to my mom's place to see my brother who is home from China for a visit. I'm going to need those 2 weeks of relaxation!
Sounds hectic, but would you want in any other way (especially since you get a vacation trip in). The birthday parties just seems to get more elaborate each year. My two DDs 7,5 have had birthday party and 20+ friends at a local gymnastic place, pizza party place, and the public swimming pool before it opened to the public. Now, oldest wants a sleepover for birthday this year. 19 days to go !!!!

I use iMovie and iDVD on my Mac. There's a problem with the widescreen on my version of iDVD, so I have to run it through another utility to fix that. Other than that, no quality problems on the DVDs.

We're having the party at a local nature center. The kids (15, I think) get to make a plaster mold of an animal track, then they take them out into the woods to look for tracks and other signs of animals. Yup, we're squeezing some education between the cake and ice cream!

So, 11 days before we're to leave for vacation, my water heater springs a leak and soaks my basement. A few hundred dollars on a new one, 3 trips to the hardware store to get the right fittings to get it hooked up, and one very heavy, wet and disgusting trip up the stairs with the old one and my water is hot again. How do you get ready for vacation?
