Best places on planet to view Northern Lights?

1 year 7 months ago #609381 by Randall McNabb
Hey thanks again for all the messages and PM's.  To answer all your comments that have been sent to me.  I'm going with a few buddies of mine.  Once a year we meet up and travel somewhere and have a 'guys time' away from our wives.  Last year was incredible, we went on a Machu Picchu and Amazon Jungle Tour, which was crazy hot and humid, but lush and green. One of my buddies, got sick from drinking from a river (even though we all told him not too). We constantly joke with him that he's part of the more-money-than-brains society!  Every year, he'll buy what ever is the latest camera from Nikon if newer than last, and he comes with a couple bodies.  What's funny (but not), is when he kneeled down to cup up some of that river water, his camera that was on a sling, slung around and dipped into the river too!  He's a hoot..."Aw mates, the old girl needed a drink too!".  He wiped off the camera and said "that's it now, leave some for the rest".  We laughed about is casual demeanor regarding this the entire trip.  

  Hence this year we decided to look at somewhere where it's opposite and cold!

Did the camera still work after getting in the water?
