Today’s Thursday Picture was taken on my hike at Long Ridge Open Space Preserve on a very rainy and blustery Sunday.
Normally, being a very good Boy Scout (Troop 210 – Troop of the Eagle!), I am prepared for the rainy weather. Heck, as you can see here…I am typically ready for any threat on the trail.
However, I had to drop off my Volvo XC 70 (again) at the shop to get yet another thing fixed! Of course, I left my Columbia rain jacket in the back of the Volvo. So, that’s how I ended up on the trail on a very rainy and blustery Sunday without my rain jacket. Unfortunately, I also haven’t been able to find my red cowboy hat for quite some time either…
Being rather stubborn, I was determined to get my hike in while also trying to protect my trusty Nikon D40 from the weather. I didn’t realize how silly – but effective – my “Kangaroo Pouch” was until another hiker passed me on the trail and said, “Nice Pouch!”
Yes, my Nikon Roo worked just great. I was able to keep hiking and to keep taking shots. My Nikon D40 survived this rainy and blustery day on the trail. That’s my Nikon Roo story…how do you protect your camera on the trail?
Where are you hiking this weekend?
If you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill.
