    I was in Cape May over the weekend trying my hand at some birding. I think I'll leave it up to you guys. I'm amazed that even my 80-400 didn't have enough reach. I'll post some shots as soon as I can. Anyway I found out that one of my photos got picked for photo of the week.

    I think I'll leave the birds to the experts and I'll stick with trucks.
     
  2. Congratulations on your photo. It is a great picture. Very deserving of a win.

    Sandi,
    This is the ultimate "guy" sport. (even though there are just as many female fans) It started out 30 years ago with Bob Chandler and "Big Foot". It was just a curiosity thing that was shown at exhibitions. It now is a multi-millon dollar buisness with hundreds of trucks throught the US and recently the world. The USHRA is the sanctioning organization with the top trucks (those with the highest point totals at the end of the season) invited to the world finals that are held each March in Las Vegas.

    Thanks for asking about David. He is doing great. He loves school (Orchard Friends School) and is playing Rec soccer. He wants "Black Stallion" his favorite truck to come to his birthday party in a few weeks. :eek:
    Actually the driver of the truck sent me an e-mail after seeing some of my photos on the web asking if he could use some of them. Perfect timing....I mentioned to him David's dream of him coming for his birthday! Oh well, you never know. I just told David not to get his hopes up. (maybe he'll at least get a T-shirt) :smile:
