Topic says it all, on my trip to Arizona I want to be sure I have the basics covered.

Beyond the obvious kit, I always take a blower for getting rid of dust...

Absolutely essential is a spare bat-pack and since your tele is not stabilized a monopod. I just acquired the Manfrotto 676B wich is lightweight (400g) and quite sturdy. It will certainly help you get the hit-rate with your Quantaray up :)

I have a small backpack in which I carry all the camera equipment that I currently own:
- D40 with the 55-200 VR (but without the hood)
- 18-55 II
- SB-400
- a few SD cards
- a CP
- a blower + brush
- AA rechargeables for the flash

There is still space for 1 or 2 primes :wink:

Yeah, Darrin: The flash!
It just reminds me that there are these situations even when waltzing around in free nature where I would have needed that extra flash power.
Because there are no walls/ceiling to reflect the light. Or to paraphrase it differently: It's not the sun that's weak, it's the woods that suck :wink:

Don't forget your CF card reader or USB cord for the camera! I've done that once at the AST Dew Tour I had to make an emergency best buy run, I was not happy.
