On another note, I swung by the Tatlock Quarry lookout only to find the gate was locked and large Quartz stones behind the gate. Is this a new development? My wife and I were there last year to pick up some of the free gravel they drop.
Yes, well things change... The path wasn't paved, just a bunch of branches and brush you could make your way through slowly but surely.

And the quarry gates usually close over the Winter. It wouldn't surprise me to find them open later in the year.

I was able to pull some video off, but kinda choppy.
Which GoPro? 2 or 3? There's a good info thread in Equipment.

I have the 2, with the wifi bac-pac. It was the card. Future Shop had a sale on the SanDisk Ultra? 32Gb Class 10 for $49.99, regular $119, so I went to BestBuy and they matched, plus 10% of the difference. I went for the 32GB as that is just under 5 hours at 1080 res....which is longer than the GoPro battery lasts anyway.

Hate to tell you now but you should go to Canada Computers for memory cards. Much better prices than Best Buy or Future Shop. In our experience, the GP lasts about three hours no matter what you're recording. But we have spare batteries and a dc charger we bought from Wasabi Power. Great deal - $19.95 for two batteries and a charger.

Thanks again! I will check out the batteries!

The SanDISK SD I got at the reduced price is the same price at Canada Computers, but I will go there next time...need something for my Tab soon.

I was able to upload a short video....old hat for you guys!

They have lots of reputable brands other than Sandisk in class 10 for much less. I bought many 32 gig cards there for less than $15, on sale.

I used to be up on all that stuff and the small shops when I worked on desktop PC/MAC hardware. Once I made the switch to mainframe and E-class computers I forgot the small stuff. :)

Where is the West end Canada Computers?

Hey Princess, I'm thinking that connection might have come loose in the tank?

Worth a quick check before any other troubleshooting I suppose...

Have voltmeter...will travel for beer


Could be same damn thing my Beemer was experiencing...exact same pattern anyways...work, no work, etc. That was a cheap fix, very well might be the same thing ?
