The Leatherman I ordered from Amazon arrived. We’re booked for San Francisco, so I think I’m going to need to buy a spare camcorder battery and a couple of blank DV tapes. Maybe a second lavalier mic, depending on how much they cost. Plus some 35mm film. If I do it now, there’ll be plenty of time to mail order and get it all cheap. Well, cheap is relative—camcorder batteries seem to be $60 or more.

Camcorder joy

The camcorder finally turned up at Micro Center. I’m gonna make DVDs of our home movies… With soundtracks and titles and everything.
