    Try a Pelican Case, it's waterproof, airtight, and depending on how much you put in it, it floats as well. I was kidding about the pano from the kayak. Imagining the camera on a tripod on the water with you fussing and moving around to stay out of the picture was just too funny.
    Bike week seems to be a much more civil event now than in the 70's when I last was there.

    Looks like it was an excellent paddle. Really makes me want to get the kayaks out this weekend. The pano of Bike Week is great too. Can't get over these every time I look at them. The up/down views just don't seem possible.

    A question: what method do you use to geo-tag the photos in Picassa? Is it all manual or do you do a camera/GPS time sync?

    When I use my point & shoot, I have to marry up the data with a program called RoboGeo (www.robogeo.com)

    But, with my Canon 40D, I have a grip that I can attach a usb cable from my gps to, so it writes the geocoded data directly into the EXIF on the images as they're taken.

    Great solutions. Looks like RoboGEO is worth a try since the "40D USB to GPS grip" is out for me .

    And I agree with Brad - Toy Man indeed! Not that this is bad thing in any way mind you...

    It's a catch 22...I have tons of gadgets, 'cause I'm single, but I'm single 'cause I have tons of gadgets

    Ok, Toy Man. Let me ask you a question.

    If you needed to take a picture from way up in the air - with you standing on the ground - and your truck is handy - how high (with your toys) could your camera be to take a picture?
