    Got my 70-200VR + TC 17 + monopod all ready to go, along with a spare battery, 4 Gigs of CF, an S400 P&S camera, so we're off to the Mac Tools NHRA U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis. It's reported to be the mother of all drag races, and the one that crowns the 2005 NHRA champions. I just looked it up, and did you know that the current Top Fuel dragster makes 8000!!! HP? :eek: OMG, is that ever gonna make the ground shake!!! Sure glad I got a VR lens! :tongue: wonder if I should put it in Active mode? :wink:

    Changed my mind Dave, I'm taking 6 Gigs, in case one fails or something :tongue: And the women, yes the women, well, let's just say, I just hope I leave some room on the cards for the drag cars! :biggrin:
