Off to the Land of the Rising Sun for a Vacation...Geek Style!
<p><img border="1" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//zt/auto/1205991524.usr1.gif" alt="" /></p><p>Tomorrow, I’m off to Japan for two weeks for a real, business-free vacation with Ashley (I'll be back in action on April 7th). It’s going to be awesome! I tend not to get excited about vacations until right before they happen, so I’m just starting to get excited. I’m all geeked up, bringing:</p><ul> <li>…the XPS M1330 laptop for photo and video processing (gotta’ have some grunt for processing those raw files)</li> <li>…the Fujitsu P7010D for watching movies on</li> <li>…my Proporta battery for keeping the Fujitsu lasting that 11 hour flight</li> <li>…the Nikon D300 + four lenses (including my new ultra-sharp 24-70 f/2.8) + 32 GB CF card + 3 x 8 GB CF cards</li> <li>…the Canon SD 850 IS (with 8 GB microSD) for snapping casual pics and for videos (damn I wish it did HD videos - I don’t want to bring my Canon HV20)</li> <li>…two Zunes 8’s (one for the wife, one for me)</li> <li>…one pair of Ultimate Ears super.fi 5 EB’s</li> <li>…a TomTom GPS (without maps, just for finding our way back to our starting point GPS coordinates - was going to bring the HP iPAQ GPS, but it crashed and that didn’t make me feel very confident)</li> <li>…iGo Juice with several adaptors, PPC Techs Lil Sync Cable, Lil Sync Mobile USB Power Pack for charging everything</li> <li>My T-Mobile Dash, not to use as a phone, but to look up our travel schedule</li> <li>…a few assorted adaptors and cables</li></ul>Quick, I don’t leave until tomorrow AM - did I miss anything? ;-)
