Re: Fall

Thanks Rick. Believe it or not, I've actually seen people walk into something like this under whiteout conditions.

Nice

I have say, "Duh" Diego.

Wonder what part of "simulated" that was so hard to understand?

Cool Pic!

Re: Nice

Thanks. This image attracted more drama than anything else I've submitted on this site. Funny.

Great photo!

I just hope we won't need to use such "training" next year, there!
