    G-Shock travels - Stop #2

    So, the G left DougFNJ and made its way down to me. Unfortunately the job and the weather did not cooperate, so I was not able to make it to the coast. I did however have a little time, so could have a bit of fun.

    #1, Proof it did make it to me.
    #2, Boundary Avenue in Aiken, SC, a very beautiful, frequently photographed, stretch of street. More so later in the year.
    #3, The G is only rated to 200M so I hope it can handle this task.
    #4, #5, We know G's are tough, but can they handle being run over by a semi truck?
    #6, A well loved G, up close. With a problem?

    #1 - I know it says Washington, that is where I used to live. Now in South Carolina.


    #2 - Boundary


    #3 - Water resistant?


    #4 - Click to watch. Turn on the speakers.


    #5 - Yup tough enough. The tractor/trailer combo weighs about 8.5+13 = 21.5 pounds and will still hit 15+ MPH.


    #6 - Interesting feature of this G when the digits change, they are momentarily mixed up/gone!


    I may try to add a few more later if the weather and my time cooperates.

    Well, with the camera I was using, yes. If I had my Canon S3, I probably coulda made it work, but I was in a hurry, so I wouldn't get run over by any cars. The G woulda been fine, but not so sure I woulda been.
