Off to see a truck mechanic

Yep, heading over to Wanganui on Boxing day to see this character in action.  Got camera batteries charging and looking forward to it!


Hopefully plenty of this (although that straight is probably longer than the entire Wanganui circuit):


And none of this:

    1. That's the plan - crossing fingers and hoping for good weather...

  2. Andrew:

    You had better have a FAST focusing Camera. You could prefocus at a certain spot, hold focus while you Pan and just click when he gets at that spot. or use shutter priority at 1,000/sec at full zoom.

    Shucks, too hard to explain, send airfare and I'll look over your shoulder. I mean what are friends for ?

    Merry Christmas and have a good time

    1. Best get yourself on a plane Bob. I could use all the help I can get - my favourite camera setting is auto...

      Merry Xmas to you too!

  3. You may need a translator if he speaks! I wonder if he will hit up some of your mindblowing mtb trails while he is there?
    Enjoy.

    1. Not sure, he's been in country for a few days already. Maybe he's taking a decent break while he's here. I'd rather see him on his Suzy than a push bike...
