My bags (aren’t) packed, I’m ready to go

Because I can’t figure out what to pack for a 10 day vacation (I am out of practice), my suitcase just has pile of misc piled next to it. The good news is my backpack has the important things packed in it, camera in its case, laptop case ready to be filled, a book to read, my only thumbed through IKF07 and at least 2 knitting projects (sweater and one pair of handspun socks ready to go).

One of my plans for this trip is taking a boat load of photography. So you know what??? I am going to have a contest!!!! Since winter is almost here (ha ha ha ha ha) I think it’s time for a mitten or glitten kit as the prize. Leave me a comment on how many total pictures (good or bad) I will take over my 10 day vacation and the person that comes the closest when I get home Sept 9 wins! (contest closes at 9pm PDT Sept 9)

    Hmmm. Kind of a crapshoot, but nothing to lose, right? I’ll guess 789 (it was easy to type).

    Ten days is very hard to pack for!

    Hmm, you have your laptop, so running out of card space isn’t an issue. I’m going to guess 2500.

    Don’t pack. Do as I do and buy all new stuff while you’re away. You ARE going to do some shopping on vacation, yes? It’s the perfect time to get some new things anyway.Just bring a big EMPTY suitcase.

    Wow, 10 days of pictures from a picture nut. My guess is 750. Just pack clean underpants, wear your clothes until you can’t stand them then toss them aside and buy more. Do the same with that set and that way you save precious suitcase space for important things. Like yarn.

    Wow, I haven’t been here for awhile and I have missed a lot!!! Congrats on your new camera. What a way to test it in Alaska! Hubby and I want to go to Alaska for our ten year anniversary next summer, so I can’t wait to see what you did and may have to pick your brain on the best things to do. I am saving for a 70-300 lens for my Nikon D80, so I’l be anxious to see how that worked out for you there.

    I am going to guess 1132. That seems like a good number. I took 800 driving across country and I know that I would take more in Alaska and even more if I had a brand new camera.

    Memory is so cheap these days that it’s easy to fill up a camera, as long as you have enough batteries! I’ll guess 512 photos.

    I guess it depends on how many times you leave the camera in your room – like I did! Let’s say 439. Happy Vacation.

    Oooh, I am so jealous of your vacation!!!!!

    Anyway, I think I will put my guess at 1492. I know I would be taking plenty of pictures if I had a digital camera and laptop on vacation… I always get hung up on that card space thing…
