Junk Steps

As you may or may not know from reading some of my posts here, or from my crap personal blog, I’ve been dealing with some back issues over the past five months that has made mountain biking less than fun. I could bore you at length about the issue, but I won’t, I’ll just say that last week I was craving time in the woods, and figured that a hike at our local county park might be a better option, and easier on my back, than riding my mountain bike, so off I went.

One big reason was that even if I sold the X-T10, there would still be hundred of dollars to make up, and I think I’ve spent enough of camera gear the past few months. I also saw that I my drops and spills replacement warranty lasts until 2018, why not just use the crap out of the X-T10, if it goes again, I have the D7100 to use until I get the replacement.
