Today I went and got my last expensive purchases and additional equipment.
Asus eeePC netbook
2 microfiber towels (s+xl)
Haglöfs fleece sweater
Deuter Gogo daypack
Nikon D3100 DSLR + 18-105mm lens
Last big purchase
I actually got the DSLR a few weeks ago, but forgot to add it to the list before. It might be bulky to bring along, but the quality of the pictures make up for it. I do plan to bring my little Casio Exelim snapshot camera for random snapshots and in “dangerous situations where I don’t want to bring out my DSLR to take pictures. With this, I pretty much have all my stuff ready for my trip. Just need to get my first-aid kit, medicin, mosquito-repellent, etc. And I’m pretty much set. Once I’ve got all my stuff I’ll prolly test-pack my backpack and see if I’ve brought too much or whether there’s space for more (if needed).
