Porpe decided it was a good idea to hold a demo at the Bushnell Skatepark, which is small, shitty and patrolled by Police who make sure helmets are always worn. I am a resident of Bushnell. My taxes go to fund this. Porpe called back to my desk about a week ago and said "Steve! Bushnell demo September 4th. You down?"
"Are you sure about this?" was all I could think of.
"Yeah, it'll be a good one."
"If you say so."
Also, I ordered an adapter cord for an off camera flash and paid $12 extra for it to be at my house at least 2 hours before the demo. According to UPS, for some reason the box was "rescheduled" for a September 8th delivery. Way to drop the ball, B&H Photo.
Addendum: This is an e-mail I got from Henry Posner, Director of Corporate Communications about my cord's late arrival: "We appreciate your purchase and understand your frustration but no one from B&H dropped anything. We received and shipped your order 9/2 for delivery 9/4. It was UPS, not B&H, which rescheduled delivery. The s&h fee originally applied to your transaction is being refunded to you in anticipation of our getting a refund from UPS. Under the circumstances I think it's reasonable to ask you to modify your comments. Thank you."
With that being out of the way, we were off to the woods for a demo.

After all that, Jereme decided he wants my job and took the camera. I now present:
