About 5 years ago I went down to Martinsburg, WV, a town in the  NE Panhandle, to see David Selby and Susan Sullivan in a play (an account of that trip is elsewhere on this site).  After visiting the area, I was determined to go back, this time with enough time to see and do a lot more in this historically rich area.  Unfortunately, life the universe and everything have been working in combination to keep this from happening.

The announcement of the booksigning in Hagerstown MD(about a half hour north of Martinsburg),finally got me to say the heck with it and go ahead with the trip by myself, with the signing tacked into the middle of a 5 day round of historical tourism.  I'm hoping to get a short write up of the trip, along with a selection of  photos of places such as Harpers Ferry, Martinsburg and Antietam, up shortly. 

In the meantime, here are my photos from the book signing, as well as a few from my trip to the Gettysburg National Cemetary first thing that morning.  Again, a write up of the day -- which came within inches of being ruined by an <expletive deleted> who made an illegal turn in front of me causing me to have only my third fenderbender since I was 16 -- will hopefully follow shortly.  This accident happened, of course ON the way to the Borders for the signing (I hate that guy Murphy).   Due to the delay with the police reports, etc., I missed at least the first hour of the reading, but at least I wasn't injured, and my car only had minor cosmetic damage, instead of needing major work 300 miles from home.

Once the writeups are complete, an update notice will be posted on the site's home page, as well as notice of the update being posted on dsboards.com.

Hope you enjoy the pictures -- the camera is new, a Sony DSC H-2, and has virtually all of the functions of my SLR, including a built in 12x (432mm) zoom, but weighs less than a pound. (At one point on my trip from NY to Burbank, I found out by having to move my camera bag out of my checked luggage, that the old reliable SLR with lenses weighs 20 lbs,which was the final straw in deciding to replace it with a digital equivalent.)

FYI If you think I was camera happy with these Selby shots, my vacation pictures from all the locations combined added up to well over 2G, or more than a thousand pictures. For the history and picture buffs, the vacation pics are being (slowly) posted on facebook, as they have no limit on the number of photos which can be posted for FREE, and shots can be made avaliable to be viewed by anyone, not just facebook members.
