I have scanned hundreds of my photos but have many more to do. I have tried to get the most important but t least a few thousands remain

I don't have all of them as prints. Transforming the negatives into digital images produces better quality prints. But it is an expensive and pain in the butt process.

In the mid-70's I took a long backpacking trip across the Selway-Bitterrot Wilderness; 10 days and 110 miles. I had six pounds of excellent camera gear with me, nearly 10% of my total load (you count ounces on a trip like that). I took lots of photos. Just after the next Christmas, on the morning of New Year's Eve, the old log cabin I had just moved into on a ranch outside of Missoula, burned to the ground along with my Pentax and all my photos.

The following August I went on another backpack across the Frank Church River of No Return Widerness - 130 miles and 13 days. No camera.

Some forty years later I still have many memories of the second trip, but mostly only remember a few of the photos from the first.

My sister and I do a lot of genealogy research. In the late 80's we spent a week gathering records in the counties where our great grandparents' families were from, tracking down relatives, and finding tombstones in graveyards around Illinois. I photographed all of it. I had about 5 rolls of film from that trip when my camera kit was stolen. Even though it was a special camera to me, as it was the first one bought with my own money and got me through college when I was working as a stringer for local papers, it was the loss of the research that I never recovered from.

Welp, it finally snowed today. Not at all like what was predicted. We got 1.0" - 1.5" of snow. The snow really didn't start until 8pm and finished around 1am.

I drove the vanpool van really slowly. Sammy and I got home safely. smile

Point being: don't let photos become a substitute for memories...
