Thailand, here I come

Title says it all.

Have decided to not bring a laptop. So from now until at least until the end of my Thailand trip, I will be connection free. Sort of liberating, sort of scary.

I have the ability to capture approximately 1300 pictures before I have to find another CF card. I have 2 batteries fully charged. I imagine I will have to keep the chimp shooting down to a minimum. Composition, composition, composition. Good light, God willing, will help lots too. Won't even bring an external flash. That's how I'm going to roll.

Taking the backup camera, and a 50mm f1.8 prime cheap-o lens. Will probably bring the Gary Fong puffer if I need to diffuse the on-board flash.

This trip will be about helping those in need. I will be building a house for people who don't have the means to do so. I will document as much as I can, and there's a real good chance I will lose my equipment sometime along the way. I'm mentally prepared and accept the fact I might end up with nothing because apparently, theft is common - even in 5 star hotels, when you have stuff locked in a safe.

Can't wait.
