Well it is a week before I fly off to Italy (hooray!!!) and I am going to be spending today practice packing to see what works and what I will be carrying.  Expect photographs later today in another entry as I have to get mulch.

I am trying to limit myself to one bag and my shoulder holster camera bag for light weight travel.  I am not going to bring the macro ( weep!!) after all.   So it will just be the 5D2, 24-105, CF cards, batteries, and maybe the external flash.  But I doubt I will use the ext. flash.  So I might just leave that at home too.
