Also realize that these were all taken in his "own back yard". Familiarity 
breeds excellence (and confidence). For a large part he knew where he was 
going and had a real good idea of what he was looking for. I too see no 
reason for subterfuge.

Point is, I guess, goals are good. PAD, PAW, roll a day, frame a day, fom2, 
or however you feel you can push your self. We're all doin' the same thing.
