Headed to Yellowstone!!

Just need to survive 2 more days of work, then my wife and I are off to Yellowstone for a week!! RV is packed up and ready to go.....just need to charge up all my camera batteries, format my memory cards, and make sure my sensor doesn't need cleaning.

Good luck on your trip. Yellowstone is a lovely trip. Take your kit lens and your 50-200 and you should have a good trip.

I always take everything with me on our hikes (Sigma 50-500 Bigma, Sigma 10-20, Tamron 18-200, Pentax 43 ltd, AF 540 flash, filters, remote......tripod and monopod. It's about 20-25 lbs in total, but the backpack I have is quite comfortable, even on a 10-12mile hike. Won't be able to outrun a bear.......but the Bigma is a formidible weapon!!!

No problem there...I have 2 8G Cards, a 4G Card, 3 fully charged batteries, and an RV with a generator so I can recharge if I need too.

Can I ask a favor? Be careful. If you're tired get off the road. 1700 miles is a trek. Be safe. Post pictures.
OK it's a multiple part favor.
