I was fine, but my shoes, clothes, hands and camera bag (with camera safely inside) were covered in mud. Then a train showed up .... in the wrong direction AND my settings were all wrong, hence the blurriness and bad exposure. And of course the mud on my hands got on the camera. Lastly, I got a thorn in my hand grasping to anything I could to climb back up the slippery slope. Oh, and I somehow broke my sunglasses.

    Not a good outing, but that's what makes life interesting. By the way, I use a Nikon gadget bag that I got free when I bought my D5100. It holds everything well and is actually quite nice. When I got home, I removed my camera and gear from it, then washed it with dishwashing liquid and sponge, then blasted it with a hose. It was then clean, but soaking wet. After drying outside in the sun for a day, it's now as good as new.

    I wiped the mud off the D5100 with damp rags, then finished with paper towels spritzed with Windex. No mud got in the camera or on my glass and it appears that it's good to go. I'm glad that it was in my bag and not around my neck when I fell.

    Glad to hear the camera survived. Oh, glad you're okay too!
