Gearing Up for Asia

2009-05-07 15:05:00-0700

I'm trying to not gear up too much for Asia. That is, I don't want to spend a ton of money on this trip, I want to make it cheap. Reason one is so there's less liability for lost, damaged or stolen gear. Reason two is that since I'm quitting my job I won't have money to play with.

That being said, I just got a GPS for my camera. This is so I can keep track of where I take photos without having to know exactly where I am, remember that and go back to manually geotag those photos. I think this is worth it because I want to be sure to remember the beautiful locations I find, and I expect to not exactly know where I am every moment of every day. It'll also help with journaling my trip and figuring out where I sleep each night. All I have to do is take a photo before bed and be done with it.

The other big expense, and in turn logistical thing to figure out, is what pack to take in order to fit what I want to take with me, which brings up the question of what I want to take... That's definitely been on my mind. I'm seeing Gecko tonight (for the first time in years) and I expect that she'll be pretty insightful about that.
