Unread postby kwaldeier » Sun Jul 31, 2011 3:04 pm

Today was a day of alot of "firsts" for me. I am pretty proud of myself, not to gloat or anything 8-) :lol: I know 90% of you guys here have done this 10000000 times so im a little behind lol

1. First time walking in with a LW on my back and setting up
2. Fist fawn film footage
3. First buck in VELVET EVER footage
4.First time taking a stand down 3 hours after it was put up
5. First use of the new camcorder
6. First use of the new camera arm
7.First time i think i have lost about 10 gallons of sweat
8.First time not getting eating alive(Thermacell! :) )

It was a good glassing trip! Hoping to see more tomorrow at a different location, on the ground :)

Congrats on all the firsts! If you keep doing this one you'll get in great shape for season two you get more efficient at set up and take down.
