My U.S. National Park Senior Pass. It's saved me, without exaggeration, hundreds of dollars since I got it in 2013.
I've just learned that not all National Parks are free. Good to know!

The card (which cost me about $20 -- they're more expensive now) gets you free admission to National Parks and Monuments (worth $35 some places) and half off on campsites. The saving adds up quickly. It even gets you in free to places like Red Rock Canyon, a national conservation area outside Vegas.

Flashlight, extra batteries and sd cards, the boring stuff in everyone else's bags too. Plus a small first aid kit, black electricians tape, half a dozen ziploc bags, 2 Jim Beam minis (those are important), and a small card with name, next of kin, and blood type.

The card now cost $80 but it is still a sweet deal. I always drop money in the jars at national parks anyway.


As to my camera bag, a few polarizing filters, a battery charger, a few microfiber cloths, extra batteries, old teleconverters, memory cards, Vello remote, a flash bracket, a flash and of course the camera and a few lenses. The big lenses travel in an old beat up carry on rolling suitcase I have. I place some padding, My 300 f2.8, my 70-200 F2.8 and my D FA 150-450 lenses in there.

Visitors to USA should know that there are over 10,000 state parks as well.
New York's Adirondack State Park is larger than any National Park in the contiguous United States.
