Rough trip home from camfest.  Blew out a tire and had to put my spare on.  Went about a mile and blew another one.  I had to get help for that one.  I did not have a plug kit with me.  Just really sucked.

Yup, that fairly new stone on the road will do that, been there. There was a lot of traffic on the road when I left, hope a good Samaritan came along to give you a hand or a ride.

Well Jon Is out on a walkabout the plan is to spend the night in a hammock then finish the loop.I told him that yogi would unwrap him like a tootsie roll.

Thanks for stopping guys! Had a great time catching up. Sucks about the tires Charles I have heard of a couple more since I talked to you.
With sufficient thrust pigs fly just fine

John, Thanks for hosting and to the Mrs. for putting up with all of us. I think we all had a good, productive day (except for Charles on the trip home) and got a fair number of cameras repaired. Jon now has a Frankenstein camera made from parts of at least three S40s or maybe more -- hope it doesn't turn out to be a monster. Jon had a great day for the first one of his trek; it's getting dark now, who gets his cameras if he gets eaten?

The flats were where the old stone was.  Whatever the first thing I ran over was big.

Okay, looks like I'm getting picked on....and Woody I deleted most of the pics of you!
First off again a big thanks to John and Norma for hosting this. Can't imagine how you put up with a bunch of whiners at this time Norma (and I mean us!).
Here is a few pics. of the gang (only 4 showed).

Just one of working on a camera...guess who got bit? (hint it WASN'T me)

Some of the cameras hacked or fixed. Only 4 guys there but think we got 8-9 fixed.

Lunch was super as was dinner. Here is our excellent host...and no it's not Gordon Ramsey.

Evening social time...somehow the camera blacked out the right side. Sorry mrshood [biggrin]

Jullianne (Jillian??) drove Johns golf cart all over taking numerous people for rides. Surprised me with her ability. Would drive with her anytime.

And our place to work at..

Couple things to remember...
What goes on at camp stays in camp (so if you're curious then plan on making it next year).
Also there is a wealth of information and free help to be had.

Thanks again John and Norma.

Here's a photo to add to the collection - Camfest 2017 - Jon (1).JPG 
That's Jon (Iroquois Archer) if anyone doesn't recognize the head.

Crap, it didn't post. Remember Woody I said I deleted MOST of the pics....not all. Paybacks a -itch. [biggrin]
And also tell them the entire story. Anti reflection came off the lens so was using an old pair of glasses...and I'm also blind. But also it was Johns camera I was hacking and I didn't want to screw it up so I could eat.

Looks like a fun time!  Sorry I missed yet again.  Good to see Jon didn't get eaten or bitten.
When I look at the smiles on all the children's faces, I just know they're about to jab me with something.

Jon, I've got more photos too but they're in the recycle bin where they'll stay unless they're needed.

Think that's where I stored mine too.
