04-14-2012, 02:27 AM
I mentioned in an old thread of mine (http://forums.tombihn.com/customer-pictures-video/2888-tour-18-days-aeronaut-smart-alec.html) that I would post an updated packing list. It's amazing how much progess I've made in the last two years. I leave in a few hours for a 17 day trip, traveling all over the East Coast/Mid-Atlantic area of the US, selling merch for a band. I'm planning for very nice spring weather, 60s-70s, maybe some rain. But I work indoors mostly.

Sorry I don't have photos to accompany this post. I'll do my best to try and take some. Welcome to my set up:

I can see you've moved up in the world, from a Rebel to a 7D.

These lists are very useful to get a sense of what fits into a particular bag. I would like to know if you pack any extra pants or jeans. Thanks.
