My little bro. First time on an AR.
Shooting at an abandoned sh*tter.
Back from a 4 day trip to the Black Forest in Southern Germany. Total was 1900km's. Day 1 and 4 600, day 3 and 4 +/-350 each.
My DL650 and my mate's SV1000
What a view :eek:
And yes, we had a bit of a shower. Day 3 was quite wet. Beautiful roads, with about 3cm of water :skep: Now I know how aquaplaning feels on a bike! The hairdryer at the hotel worked overtime :cool:
And here the present of the last day, 38.6km's of the most beautiful asphalt roads, with views that were just breathtaking.
1. No problems making the miles on the Strom. My mate on the other hand...
2. Top speed was 198 on GPS on the Autobahn.
3. GOOD raingear is important. My underthingies were dry, my mate had 1cm of water in his boots. And gloves dry fast with heated grips
4. What a fantastic country! With 1 exception (young idiot in a small car tailgating) EVERY car/truck/BUS ( ! ) moved over to the shoulder and indicated when we could overtake! Realistic speed limits aswell...
5. Road surface is excellent everywhere, maybe the odd patch of gravel on the smaller roads.
All in all, what a truly fantastic way to spend a few days
My new hobby...collecting old cameras. I'm finding out that Flea Markets are the best place to find and buy them. You can usually heckle em down a bit and you can get hands on with the camera.
Ansco Anscoflex II 1954 in working condition
Voigtlander Bessa 1931 assumed to be in working condition
Zeiss Ikon not really sure of the model or year.
Kodak Brownie Starmite II, 1962-1967 working condition with three flash bulbs.
I'm really excited about getting film for the Anscoflex and the Bessa. The glass on both need a good cleaning but other then that appear to be in great condition. All the mechanical aspects of the cameras appear to be on great working condition as well. The Starmite is in mint condition and only cost me $3, that little guy is gona be a lot of fun as well.
