It's been six months living in Alaska. Time is screaming by. And every 
day I still get amazed with the scenery. We've barely even explored 
outside of our little valley. 

I'm not at my home computer where I can pull up Lightroom to see what 
my numbers are, but since leaving Iowa, I'm somewhere over 20 thousand 
photos taken. The current casualty list includes: 

1. 35-80/2.8 zoom - Aperture Ring became loose/disengaged. 

2. Canon 6D - Severe sensor garbage collection. 

3. Tokina 100-300/4 ATX - One element is hazing up and is no longer 
pure of thought or image. It looks like a glue separation issue. 

4. Missing tripod, softbox and a few other doodads that are buried in 
some random box from the move. 

For the Canon 6D, the most used lenses has been the OM Zuiko 28/2 and 
300/4.5 lens. The 24/2.8, 50/1.4 and 200/4 have been getting use, but 
not like the main two. It's just the nature of this specific valley 
where the cool shots are all super-tele or wide. For the 4/3 bodies, 
all three have been getting significant use, with the DMC-L1 taking 
the lead, the E-3 following and the E-1 getting love in unusual 
lighting conditions. 

The film cameras have reemerged from dormancy. The OM-3Ti and OM-4T 
are getting some use. Not much, but some. The problem is my processing 
stuff is still buried and hasn't been fully unpacked yet. The ancient 
Kodak folder camera is getting carried along on long hikes. It's small 
enough to slip into the side pocket of my tiny bag. 

The days are getting longer and we're emerging from our caves to do 
winter sports activities. It's a bit strange to see everybody get 
excited about snow in the forecast. We have freezing fog at the house 
right now, so it's going to be a stunner of a scene once the sunlight 
hits. Schooling is brutal right now, but I really need to brave the 
elements and go hiking down by the river this weekend.
