This is my second year participating in the annual "man-camp" camping trip. Like last year the group camped in the Allegheny National Forest in the Kinzua Dam area, which happens to be the headwaters of the Allegheny River. The weather was great this year, with just a little rain as we slept in our tents that last night. The activities of the days and nights include eating, drinking, boating, wake-boarding, fishing, hacky sack, and drinking.
Last year I took my Canon DSLR and several lenses. This year I traveled light taking only my Fujifilm X-E2, a 35mm, and 14mm lenses. I was able to enjoy myself without worrying about lugging heavy hear everywhere, and my entire kit fit in my backpack that traveled with me everywhere we went.
The first image below is my weekly entry and the remaining are a few of my favorites, including a bonus image of me thanks to Jim when he was checking out my camera. Overall the trip was excellent, went way to fast, and produced many great stories that I am sure will be retold over and over again.
