    If there is a cat herding merit badge, you've won it many times over, and with great patience and grace. So you get the first one at no charge.

    Most kind, and thank you, but patience and grace are not in my vocabulary.

    Could I have a little feedback please? I am wondering if this would be of interest either Saturday or Sunday? The other day we could have Peter’s demo, print showing and shoot in the park.

    About a mile from the Akron Art Museum (see exhibit info post #57), the Cuyahoga River and the OH & Erie Canal start to climb, fifteen ninety foot locks in a mile. It is Summit County after all. There are several RR overpasses making for some pretty dramatic locks, water falls, disintegrating construction sites. Peter and I have shot there and enjoyed. Would the group be interested in shooting there either morning, seeing the Flora exhibit in the air conditioned museum after 11 AM, and possibly having late lunch together. Some opinions please.

    These pictures were among many taken there.

    “The Ohio & Erie Canal was a technological marvel. The inland waterway incorporated a series of sandstone locks that enabled boats to climb differences in elevation along the Continental Divide. The steepest section of the canal was between Akron and the Little Cuyahoga River. In a single mile, 15 locks, or "steps," were necessary. Canal boats, which were pulled by mules on the towpath, made it possible to ship goods from the Great Lakes (Lake Erie) to the Gulf of Mexico (via the Ohio and Mississippi rivers). Locally, the canal, which opened between Cleveland and Akron in 1827”

    John,

    The facebook photo links don't work unless you have a facebook account and are signed in. So in my case (and probably others who don't trust or like facebook) using facebook for photo links "prevents you from connecting and sharing with some of the people in your life".

    I'm neutral on the Akron locks. I probably won't decide on what I feel like shooting until the last minute.

    Who was it that brought up cat herding?

    Looks like an interesting area to me.

    Our selfish preference would be to have the demo and print showing Sat. night though since we will be leaving very early Sunday morning.

    John, sounds like a well-planned morning and afternoon, I'm in! Definitely save the museum for the hot portions of the day, it's heavy enough carrying LF gear than adding an extra photographer to the load.

    Sorry about the Facebook limitation.

    Letís step back to basics. Can we count noses? Who is coming and when? Who is camping?

    The camping question has to do with a possible safety issue. There is a large tree balancing on another tree, about to fall over the entrance to the camping area. It is so precarious that without a logger's knowledge I am a little afraid to work on the widow maker. If not many are camping we may do an alternate and set up camp by the pond allowing time and storms to take down the tree. If a good number are camping we need to get out the hard hat, chains, Mother in law's full size tractor and saws.

    Letís have a count of who is coming and who is camping please.

    Thanks.

    John
