The Pack

It was a process, loading all of this gear into a few small spaces. It didn’t help that I was carrying double the camping equipment (Nic needed some extra) and some extra camera gear along with me. All of this:

Fit into one large, and one small backpack, and so far it’s fitting pretty tight, going to weigh a lot, and I have a lump on my right shoulder (on my collar bone) that is starting to ache, and creating backpack carrying issues. We’ll see how that unfolds as I go. Only about 24 hours now until my flight leaves DIA to head south and I’m going over and over my equipment to make sure I brought enough.

I also can’t help but wonder what to begin shooting first. If we don’t begin shooting early and often we may miss our story completely and have to come up with a new plan. It will be important to get a lay of the land and acquainted (more so myself than Nic) with Ecuador, but I don’t want to waste too much time looking with my eyes if I could be capturing it with my camera. Hopefully I can share more very soon. For now, I’m off to breakfast.
