This past week, a woman named Jody lost most of her possessions in a house fire near Homer, Alaska. We are trying to help her with whatever we can. I offered her some of my old film cameras, but she'd been working with digital, and wants to replace the D70 she had with something alike or newer. So, if anyone has any digital bodies hanging around, and you are interested in selling them, please let me know with a PM or direct e-mail to steve(AT)naturephotography.net

I've invited her to join the nikon cafe (she managed to get her computer out just before the fire consumed the house). Please give her a warm welcome if you see her posting.

Sorry to hear this Steve. I sure am glad it was not a worse outcome and hope she recovers to normal as quickly as possible. I will keep an eye out for her as a new member in case she joins.

I can loan her a D70 and an AF-S 24-85.
Hi Mike,
Its Jody here, she of burning house fame! Still in a daze here really but glad I am alive. Your offer is amazing as I will be heading up on the Godwin Glacier next week. If you are happy for me to take your camera in this environment I would be very grateful if we could arrange to post here asap. I am sure the photo ops will be huge and a better camera would be great. I could then return at some stage over the next couple of months before I go home...what do you think?

Thanks again, Jody.

Send me a PM or an email with your name and address and I'll send the stuff as soon as I can. I am in my condo on the Virginia Eastern Shore just now and the camera and lens are at home in Frederick, MD. I'll be there sometime Monday afternoon. I get it out as soon as possible.

Hi all there
I hope your friend hadn't lost anything really important... when the house fires, much more than just a camera vanishes..
Anyway - and this is maybe off topic - I hope to come there soon.. Alaska is a kind of place that I always liked to visit. All northern America is so wide and various in its sceneries and landscapes (not to talk about the many different kind of people living there) that is really the photographer's heaven, I guess..
