  1. Napp Gear! Finally! Just waiting for the black polo shirts and hats to become available (hint, hint). That Flashpoint set looks interesting. LOL @ the Vanelli cruise. Now THAT should be a blast to anyone that can make it.

    Thanks for all the Pimpy today, Brad.


  2. CAKB, I’ve already placed my order at NAPP Gear! I’m wondering what it would be like to be stuck on a boat with V, not a min of rest, nonstop action! 8-)

  3. Hey Scott, that’s awesome that you’re workshop is sold out. when are you planning to come back to Honolulu. you did one a few years back for Lightroom and that was the best thing ever. for 2011 nothing is planned for hawaii, so i guess i will have to go to the closest workshop to us. enjoy your week.

    PS- i started watching The Grid and i think it’s awesome! keep up the good work and thank you for sharing your knowledge with everyone, you’re awesome!

  4. Sorry I’m going to miss the workshop in Toronto, Scott. Can’t make it down this week. If you’re still around on the weekend with nothing to shoot, come up and catch whitewater kayak racers at the Minden Wildwater Preserve. The Championship races are this weekend but there are sure to be lots of kayaks on the water next week too!
