Hi all, I have a Nikon D3300 package that's on order and will be delivered tomorrow. It's my first DSLR and I'm beyond psyched to be getting it. I've been into 35 mm photography for a few decades and my only digital camera has been a Canon Powershot A560. I'm looking forward to being a part of the community and asking lots of stupid questions  :D  I live on Cape Cod, and the sun just came out after being on hiatus for the last week or so.

Ha been to 29 stumps! :P Not the most loved Marine base in the USMC.

Only stopped at Bremerton for a few days in the late 80s really don't remember much except the great view of Mt Rainier.

I thank you and your entire families for their service.

He doesn't care for it lol. He's only hoping his next duty station isn't Okinawa. It's Texas hot with intense humidity.
