Ohio June 2009

Here are some pictures from my trip to Ohio in June 2009. Mill Creek Park dominates these shots.


West Virginia Penitentiary

Went through 3 sets of batteries here. I usually get 700 to 800 pics per set of batteries. Also there are many out of focus shots. I never have a problem with that. Also, my camera is auto focus not manual. After reviewing the pictures I found many strange things. One shows something that was not available to the naked eye. Very freaky! You will see! About 1000 people died in this small prison via hangings, electric chair, violent murders and riots. I found out that this place is one of the most haunted areas in the eastern U.S..

2010 Road Trip

I use an older Digimax camera but it does pretty well for our needs. I do not skimp on batteries though. I like to use 2700mah AA batteries. DO NOT USE a low cost charger to charge your batteries! I have learned this from experience. My rechargeable batteries always lasted less than a year before no longer accepting a charge or just not lasting long at all. I did some snooping around on the internet and discovered that inexpensive chargers ruin batteries. So, I found this quite affordable (just under $50) charger that really keeps those batteries going. I have yet to have a battery “go bad” since I have been using this charger and they also power the camera for much longer as well. You really save money and help save the environment when you use re-chargeable batteries. This charger helps even more!

Here is an 8 pack of 2700mah batteries that are great quality. Also very affordable at around $23! Wow! I also put these in our solar powered walkway lights. They stay lit FOUR TIMES LONGER when I replace the stock batteries (usually only 650mah) that came with the lights with these. Great for flashlights too.
