I've never understood how some of you guys are able to travel with these amazing camera setups and bring them home intact and not in pieces or destroyed.
That's very generous! I also scratched my head quite a lot before the trip, trying to figure out what to bring (and how to do it), and I finally settled for a smaller camera setup: an Olympus Micro 4/3, the OMD EM5, and 4 lenses, all in my tank bag, where they should be relatively safe unless I had a major screwup. It worked just fine, and I had the camera on my shoulder a good part of the time. Really light and small enough not be felt.

Thanks, I guess I got really lucky with the weather. I still had my fair share of rain, but nearly as much as I thought I would have. First trip luck!

I got back from a longish trip on the bike, carrying my DSLR and a few lenses. After the trip I knew I wanted something smaller and a few months ago sold my DSLR kit to move to micro 4/3.

Micro 4/3 + motorcycle travel make a happy pair.

That's the perfect combination for photographers on two wheels!

Congratulations on your trip

...From a fellow 'Weston'er...I live in the Islands. If you see a black Super Tenere around town, give me a wave Incredible photos. Been to a few areas you passed through.....but I can see I have a lot more to see....

Great, a fellow Weston'er! I'm in Palm islands, moved here from Brazil back in 2000. Will keep an eye on the Super Tenere for sure, maybe we can go for a ride around the Everglades someday. You're right, the Northwest is a place to be visited way more than once. I spent a lot of time up there and my list of places to be visited next time kept getting bigger by the day.

Glad to hear about the upcoming trip, you won't regret it. If I can help in any way with the planning, just let me know. I got a lot of useful information here and it would be a pleasure to be able to help for a change.

It was really a pleasure to post the pictures here, I really feel very grateful for all the research I was able to do here before hitting the road on such a long trip. There are more pics and some little texts on the links for the blog updates I posted right at the start of the thread, hope you will enjoy them!
