Too many hobbies

Posted by rdub in This just in...

Ever feel like you have way too many hobbies? Like all these
interests pull you in a million different directions at once, leaving
you feeling like a dyslexic schizophrenic with ADHD trying to choose a
place to have dinner?

Sometimes I think I need to cut a couple of hobbies, and give my self
time to focus on my favorites. Then I have trouble decided what to cut
from the list. Then I get distracted, and pick up one of my hobbies…

That’s my life right about now.

I’m still alive, don’t worry. Trying to decide the fate of this website/blog.

Things in life have been good, but quite busy.

Stay tuned!

My flight has been delayed 1 hour to change the break pads on the plane. Kind of an important part, I figure. Plus, that shaves an hour off of 3 I’d have to spend in LAX; there’s always a plus side. 😉

How to pack a tripod

It’s already over.  Damn, time flies way too fast when you’re having fun!

After one week in Arkansas, at what would be a 5 star hotel if it wasn’t Athena’s parents house, it’s time to pack up and leave for home.  I’m no where near ready to go home and back to work, but my plane ticket is paid up for today, and my vacation ran out on Friday.

On that note, a quick how to: How to pack a tripod.

In a duffel, or similarly long suitcase, lay down a layer of clothes to be used as padding.  Finish off this layer – it should take up about about 1/3 of the bag, and cover the entire bottom.  I usually finish the layer with a few pairs of jeans or dark clothes, that way if my tripod has picked up some hitchhikers (dirt, mud, what-have-you), it rubs off on my jeans, and not on my white linen shirts.

Now, drop in the tripod, fully compacted.  Wrap a pair of sweatpants around the ballhead.  Make sure the tripod is centered in the duffel.  Now, top it off with another layer of jeans and dark clothes, at this point, start filling in the voids in the bag with your dirty clothes, or roll up some jeans and stuff them down the sides.  Top off the bag with the cleanest, lightest clothes.
