I went out to my buddies place that I use for my storage. Grabbed a couple boxes of stuff from the house I thought I might need over the winter.
His place isn't plowed out during the winter time and his drive is 150 yards with steep banks on both sides, old farm of over 150 years.
Anyways, I thought I'd pop my head in the garage to check on things. Lifted the tarp off the top of my Snap On Tool Box...
And WALA, there sits my camera. Must have left it there last fall when I was taking pics of stuff in my tool box.
Well, the 2 AA's were leaking and it's a pretty nasty mess inside the battery compartment.
I've started the clean up process with water n backing soda, craft sticks and sticky back sandpaper.
Should have it working (I Hope) by the end of the weekend.
I guess the reason I didn't realize I left it there is that I pulled the SD card out so I had it to post pics on Craigs List.
So pics (I Hope) of my knife collections, customizaton and such should be coming next week.

Camera has battery damage beyond repair, at least for me.
Wife had one just like mine. When we moved it was packed away somewhere.
My search now is to find hers. I'll be looking through about 100 boxes in storage.
Wish me luck!

Good luck. If you want to send it to me, I can have a look at it. I've had about a 50% success rate with corroded electronics.
