The kids, Yaow and I leave for the U.S. in about 30 hours. I'm mostly packed, but I have a few things that I need to include.
I love all my camera gear, and am really fortunate to have a lot of nice lenses. The problem is that I really can't check them in my luggage for fear of theft, so I have to carry them on. The problem is that they are pretty heavy. By the time you add my laptop to the mix, I think my carry on bag weighs a good 20+ pounds. Even though it is a bit expensive, I do actually put my tripod in checked luggage because it is heavy and a bit awkward to carry.
