  1. When mine didn't work I went to the pursers desk and got another one.
  2. I have only on rare occasions had to check my camera gear. I always insure it with a separate policy specific to the photo gear. To prevent pilferage by the baggage handlers my method is to put an unloaded firearm in the camera bag and declare it. This allows you to lock your luggage with a non-TSA approved lock. It can be a big problem if you stop in Canada. Several years ago I became addicted to rangefinder cameras when I started using a Leica M-6, a wonderful tool that is a pleasure to shoot with. When the last Costco photolab machine vanished I had to find a replacement. The Fuji XPro-2 has become my travel and daily camera. The quality of Fuji lenses is exceptional and I just like the ease of rangefinder use. It is small and light which makes it perfect for travel. Dave - Maniac Mike's has reopened...
  3. I had to wait a few laps until the Super 7 got out front...
  4. Asking for a friend...
  5. Flying into Long Beach is a joy compared to LAX. It just might be inconvenient from FL.
  6. I'll see your Rubber Ducky and raise you a Bob. He goes camping with us on a regular basis...
  7. Dave, Nice photo. Nicer find! And right off the end of Cable. Thank you for both the photo and the distillery...
  8. Spent some time in Monterey for the Rolex Motorsport Reunion. This car, Porsche 904, was beautiful. The lady who drove it in the races was having a nice time and not thrashing an iconic car.
  9. It is a great trip. Forward on Deck 10 (I think) is an open deck with a great view forward. It tends to get crowded but is worth a visit.
  10. Have not used them. I do you Lensrental.com on a regular basis and have never had a problem. They seem to have a larger variety of gear.
  11. We took our own judge along and he did personal renewals for the other ten couples in our group, including one couple that had been married the day before we boarded the ship. Passenger Services reserved the Wedding Chapel for us and we had a great time.
  12. Rental? I have used Lensrental.com several times. They have good prices and great service. If you know what you need/want they most likely have it.
  13. That will work, but it is a close fit due to the size of the rail. I used it and mounted to the divider between our balcony and the neighbor which was a lot more stable. Last time I gave up and used a small tripod strapped to the balcony rail.
