Does anyone have any suggestions for Kansas?
Since Route 66 only grazes Kansas, the sites are few. The two more important ones are the Marsh Rainbow Arch Bridge outside of Riverton (the sole surviving bridge of this type on the entire length of Route 66) and the Baxter Springs Heritage Center & Museum as a starting point for learning about Quantill's murderous attack and directions.
My favorite (from memory), is nowhere to be found:
Don't lose your head
To save a minute.
You need your head,
Your brain is in it.

It is a nightmare to follow through Pasadena.
Very true. Even worse was our experience. We arrived on the afternoon of May 5th (for the unaware, like we were, that is Cinco de Maya). Traffic was at a crawl, every park was wal-to-wall people, and there was nary a parking space anywhere. A local guide would have been a Godsend.
BTW - on import I rename all my files to include my initials, year, month day, & time captured, so no matter what changes within my EXIF for each image, the original date and time are part of the file name, I did not do this specifically to retain date and time, but to have unique names for every image.
I do the same and for the same reasons (except I include Camera name instead of my initials and leave the original name) but also because if you have more than one Canon camera, you will have one camera's image file overwriting another camera's file (this from bitter experience). I am unsure why Canon uses the same file names for all of its cameras but it is very irritating.
... but his post prompted me to go look at the "INFO" on JPEG images from my phone. I never had a need to look at the shot info window. Low and behold, since I have it turned on in the phone, the Lat-Lon information pops right up in the info window. Cool, I didn't know DPP would do that! Yet another way to grab the location info other than looking at file properties in Windows Explorer.
Doesn't Lightroom do this... with the added benefit of opening a Google map? Or am I missing something?
I'm definitely going to take a phone shot at each stop. (Sometimes, if the location is not obvious, I can not remember which series of shots were where.) Like "What road was that beaver lodge on?" The next camera will have GPS capability.
This is a good idea in any event... at least, until cameras automatically change time when crossing time zones.
To kinda explain why I posted the Link earlier:
I have never subscribed to cable/satellite television so I am not really a "cord cutter." However, I have built an extensive system for television. I started about fifteen years ago when I built a HTCP (Home Theater Personal Computer) based around SageTV -- which, BTW, is still to this day the backbone of the system. Of course, I am fortunate to live in an area of great OTA television -- over 80 channels.
This system includes:
Vizio 65" television (will be replaced when the P Quantum 65" is released in June/July) (well, there are 3 other tvs but who's counting)
Windows Vista computer
Yamaha RX-V673 receiver -- setup as 7.1 speaker system (Will be replace with a RX-3080 when released in June/July)
SageTV v9.0 -- HD300
8 - HDHomeRun Tuners
3 - ROKU units (I-1Ultra, 2-Express)
My subscriptions are:
DirecTV Now (DTVN)- $5.00 month ($10 minus $5 bundle credit) -- this was special pricing from when they first started the service,
HBO - free,
Showtime - $8.00 month,
Netflix - $11.39 month,
Hulu - $5.99 month,
Amazon Prime - Hard to say what the cost is because it is mostly because of the free shipping,
and, of course, the AT&T unlimited Internet service.
These subscriptions work out well for us because we travel quite extensively and simply connect all of the above, over the internet, to our RV.
Google it. You can do serious damage doing it the wrong way.
I am very happy with my Tamron 18-400, also. (Just to confirm... these are all hand-held shots?)
Three things!?!? Sounds like the "only three things you need to know about plumbing."
1. [stuff] flows downhill.
2. Paydays are Friday.
3. Never, ever lick your fingers.
