But how do you stay cool after you run out of extension cord?

That photo captures the "Stance" of the strom very nicely.

Now, there is a lot to like in this pictures. I will say it is one of the best I have seen here. The scenery isn't bad either...

Winter in Yosemite

Never understood the term "Riding season"

Around here winter is great, dare I say it, BETTER than summer for going to places like this. The park was a ghost town yesterday, perfect.

Puke Carbon cases

You don't want carbon fiber. It's not only expensive, it's not at all resistant to impact, it's brittle, like Kevlar. Lightweight, yes, strong against steady pressure, yes, but on impact it'd shatter like fiberglass, maybe worse. I know this from selling expensive sea kayaks.

My Pelican cases (ABS plastic) are totally waterproof, impact proof, and you can park your truck on top of one and wonder why it doesn't even dent. Look at Roger's Caribou thread / site, he's got a photo of his truck in just such a scenario.

I've known photographer friends who have accidently dropped Pelican cases of gear from helicopters without damage to the contents & only minor damage to the cases, which didn't open on impact, either.
