We save the change too! Had over $200.00 the last time! Helps with boarding the dogs!
Single digits! Yay!!

Congrats on single digits!
Yep. 10-22. Wish I could afford to buy it out right.

We seem to have basically the same gear, 18-55, 18-135, 55-250 and the 50 1.8. my first DSLR body was the rebel XT.

Have i ever used L glass? No, not yet, maybe someday.......
Someday. I hear what your saying. I wish I could break away from renting the wide angle.

We only got $82 this time around. I think the kids have been dipping into the Disneyland fund.

YEAH on being down to single digits!

OK, having just made the drive to and from Colorado Springs from KC in the past week....... here are a few random thoughts......

1) I was happily surprised to find I had phone (and therefore internet, even if slow) most of the way across Kansas!

2) 8 hours is a little optimistic, especially with stops. On the way back, we left at 6:15 AM and arrived home around 6 PM. That included the time change of course. But there are several spots of construction along the way. And we did stop for lunch, for a DQ blizzard break and another time for gas. And it probably depends on the route you take. We did not go through Denver then straight down, and some of those country road alternates can be very slow going. Oh, and we hit rush hour traffic in suburban Colorado Springs on the way out then again in KC.

3) Do NOT miss Garden of the Gods! We loved it. And you will love it with your new 60D. Pikes Peak is neat, but really not all that impressive I thought. I actually enjoyed the drive into Rocky Mountain National Park more last year. But Garden of the Gods was a really nice taste of Red Rock Country.

4) I'm sure you know this, but be proactive on filling the gas tank. There are some long stretches in western Kansas without services.

5) Do encourage the kids to bring electronic distractions for the drive. The trek across Kansas REQUIRES distraction! We made the drive out on a Saturday and it just killed me not to have any interesting radio to listen to.


What a great deal you got on the 10-22! I sold my Tokina last year to buy that one. I'm back and forth on which I like better. I'm totally sold on the quality of the 10-22 but do miss the 2.8 on the Tokina. Did you rent from rentglass.com in OP?

I can't wait t see your photos of the new Carsland. It looks awesome!

Thanks for the awesome mini review. Yes it was Rentglass from OP. This was the first time using them. So far so good.

That is very sweet. It will be interesting with the amount of people going to be in the parks how well the pics turn out.

LOVE your countdown. Everytime you open the fridge, I like to think of you and your family smiling and doing the happy dance.
