    Another Sunpack 383 arrived on Friday along with two more 4GB cards. A second 500GB hard drive and 8 more AA eneloops and charger should be here in a couple of days. I've got a Rapid R strap on backorder and I leave in the morning to pick up my new car. It's been an expensive week.

    sell the Z yet?

    I tried talking the wife into it, but she didn't like the color. :rolleyes:

    Of course I should just be enjoying not having a car payment instead of trying to sell the car that's paid off to buy a new one, but whatever....

    here in PA - you can not write off a car you buy but you can if you lease it. Hence many people lease here that are business owners

    I love my 383...except its been fucking up recently. Like, will turn on, but sometimes not charge unless you hit the side or swivel the head some.

    Since this is also my daily driver for non business stuff I didn't even consider leasing. Besides, I'm the kind of guy who'll spend a week looking for the best deal on a lightly used car instead of buying new. I found this car but it's three hours away. Still, I'm saving over $500 on what I could buy a similar car for locally.

    there is a guy here at work who writes off all him mileage to get to work. Why, cause his camera is with him and since photography is about being at the right place at the right time, he is always on the job. He also does nature stuff and usually has 3-4 galleries things like jared did per year. I am amazed at the stuff he pulls with writeoffs. Maybe I am to skurred :hs:
