Memos from December 2005


Happy Chrismahanukwanzakah!

It’s been 3 hours since most of the great peeps here at Mil­i­tary Advan­tage have left for the Hol­i­day Week­end. I was post­pon­ing my depar­ture for home as I was wait­ing on my early Christ­mas gift to myself, a new back­pack for my new toys. It finally came in 30 min­utes ago, and have been play­ing around with its fea­tures and stuff.

Now, I’m con­tem­plat­ing to see if I can even bring it with me on my flight later tonight to Bob Hope/Burbank Air­port. I usu­ally carry my photo-gear in a Canon 2400 Gad­get Bag along with my roll-a-way lug­gage. See­ing it first hand, this new back­pack seems to be about the size of one carry-on. So yah, now… I don’t even know what to do. I can either just pack my 20D and the smaller lenses in the smaller bag; or risk it and use the new back­pack, so I may bring my 70–200/2.8L IS along with me for the week­end. If I do do the lat­ter and get rejected, I might have to just check-in my roll-a-way.

We’ll see… we will see. Any­ways, Happy Chris­ma­hanuk­wan­za­kah!
