Saturday:Step one: Post Kanaha sail, find the perfect shady spot to relax and enjoy the Maui Race series.
Step two: As the action begins, turn on the camera only to be alerted that the memory card is full.
Step three: No prob...switch to second camera with gargantuan 16gb card.
Step four: Open up camera door to transfer card, only to find slot empty.
Step five: Curse my carelessness and chalk it up as a good lesson.
Step one: Pack Gopro, which I checked last week was fully charged, sealed and ready to go.
Step two: Due to previous days debacle, double check both cameras have working memory cards and fully charged batteries.
Step three: Arrive at 1000 Peaks, mount Gopro on paddle only to be told by know-it-all friend that the batteries are not fully charged and won't last long.
Step four: Dismiss friend observations, paddle out, ready camera for action and find batteries are dead.
Step five: Momentarily pout in disbelief at blank led screen.
Step five: Play for two glorious hours with needless extra weight on the paddle. Chalk it up to weight training and hope that all battery/memory card related wrinkles are now out of my system.
