    I know

    I know there has been some flooding today BTW but that is in the North during their rainy season so NO I'm not worried

    I have already found a way to stake some pics of the stars while I am out there as well

    I heard that on the news this morning and googled it to make sure it wasn't where you are going. It isn't.

    Well, I'm sure there's always work for doctors anywhere in the world.

    Or you could set up your own lodge and run safaris.

    Im beyond jealous I really am!

    Have you already thought about how you're going to back up your images whilst over there? if you've already mentioned it, apologies, it only just struck me before.

    I am just buying a whole heap of cards at the moment - no plans to back them up - unless of course I buy the 65GB iPad and stick them on that

    I have a 4GB card an older but semingly wrkable 8GB and just forked out for a 32 GB card (6) that I will use for a bit of filming - still can't quite get my head around a 32 GB sd card when they are full I wil 'lock them' and stick them in their case in teh bag - don't really wnat to buy a netbook and I can't believe they will have the facility to back up to a dvd so not sure what to do

    Argh I hate to say it but, any chance I can talk you into SOME form of backup storage?

    There's ipad/iphone for sure, but there are also tiny travel photo backup devices as well with a great deal more capacity.

    A few reasons. Although it seems almost impossible that you'd use all your cards up, you cant risk doing it and having to miss out on shots.

    Numerous times I've heard/read about people going on a wonderous trip like this, they put all the cards in their carry on and then get home and a card is missing or corrupt. They sometimes get some photos back from the corrupt card but of course the missing one just never turns up.

    Not quite the same but a good 15yrs ago I was travelling round the states on business and getting wonderful shots. Film of course. I always used to get the film developed in the states and carry the negatives with me in my hand luggage and a set of photographs each in hand luggage and hold luggage.

    Last time I was doing new york followed by washington. I was getting the best shots ever! Around Christmas time, around the whitehouse. Well anyway, amazing shots. Thing is, didnt have time to develop, so just stuck the rolls of film in my carry on which I guard with my life.

    I got to washington airport and the staggeringly nauseatingly annoying bovine behind the BA desk took my carry on when I was filling in some paperwork and sent it off to the hold. Assurances were given but I spend the whole flight anticipating the worst.

    Got to Manchester, empty carry on, papers and all gone plus of course all the rolls of film.

    Digital is a little easier. I back all my stuff up to laptop now or a travel HD if I dont have my laptop. Soon as I get to somewhere with Internet access, I upload them as well.
