I'd be happy to make the trip out there, especially since I have a friend at CNU not too far away, but I'm all tied up next weekend and after that I'm headed home to Raleigh for winter break until the middle of january.
Not sure if I could make the trip down for lunch. I might go over my allotted 1 (or sometimes 2) hour lunch. I'm up in Richmond. If you guys get up this way holla. I'm good for a happy hour once in a while.
Dadof2 I'm in Richmond also. Well, Mechanicsville but close enough. That D40x you have, it's the Costco bundle right? I just picked one up a few days ago. Maybe we can meet up sometime and exchange some knowledge.
Used to live out in the ville myself. My kids still do part time.
I was eye-balling the costco bundle w/ the 55-200mm/VR lense for a while before Christmas but then they sold out. I had bought stuff from Cameta (out of Amityville, NY) before and ended up getting the whole thing from them.
I'll send you a message on TPF w/ some contact info so we can meet up sometime.
