So What Did I Bring on This Safari?

First off, let me share with you that I challenged all of my photo clients to a packing challenge; to see who could pack the lightest.  I wonder who the winner will be?

I took it upon myself to try to do a total carry-on approach this time around.  So here is what I brought this time around, two carry-on’s:

Little Bag (not really that little but I can CRAM it into the luggage sizer rack if I had to):  3 paints (should have gone to two), 4 shirts (should have gone to 3), 5 pair of underware, 5 pairs of boot socks, 5 tee shirts (could have gone to 3 maybe), cords and connectors, toiletries, rain jacket, light weight jacket, micro weight gloves, hat, sun screen, plastic bag, bungee cord, extra batteries for camera, battery chargers, tool kit, I FORGOT MY MOSQUITO REPELLANT AND JUST NOW REALIZED IT.

Camera Bag:  Nikon 400 f/2.8 Version III, Nikon 24-70mm, Nikon 70-200mm, Nikon 1.4TC Version III, Nikon D4 and D3x, Fujifilm X-T1 with 10-24mm and 60mm, satellite  phone,  colorspace backup, Lacie HD, Mackbook Pro and log book.

It’s heavy but I made it all fit – not sure I will do this again.
