Plugged In, but Checked Out

Remember back in this post when we listed all the electronics and gadgets we were taking on The Trip? We posted this great picture of Inspector Gadget and called him the ancestor of the modern-day San Franciscan?

Go ahead...go back and read it. I'll wait. Need the link again? It's here.

Done yet?

I'll spare you from reading the explanations or rationalization for each product. Instead, I'll just show you some pics of the electronics and tell you what's in the pic. (Sorry for the poor picture quality - taking a picture of your camera means you have to use your phone to take the pic.)
First, the "major" electronics and goodies:
Clockwise, from top left: rooCASE Super Bubble Neoprene (Dark Blue / Black) Sleeve Camera CasePanasonic Lumix TS20 16.1 MP TOUGH Waterproof Digital Camera in Orange (loaded with 8GB memory card); Canon Powershot G-10 14.7 Megapixel Digital Camera (loaded with 32GB memory card); rooCASE Super Bubble Neoprene Sleeve iPad Case; the New Apple iPad 64GB WiFi + Cellular; covered with BodyGuardz Clear Protection SkinLogitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover; Kindle Fire; housed in Marware Lightweight MicroShell Folio Cover

And now the smaller stuff:

And, lastly, our GoPro and all of its accessories

So that's it...those are our gadgets and electronics. It's a lot, huh? But I love everything we're taking. It should allow us to take great photos, blog from the road, and resort to mind-numbing entertainment options when we are fatigued by travel and can't manage another conversation with each other. All of these electronics are housed in Aloksak Waterproof Bags. They say NASA uses these, so I assume they're pretty hardcore.
