Necessary items for a bike ride across Canada

Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m a “geek”. So my packing gear includes:

1 x iPad loaded with lots of movies, songs, books, magazines, the WordPress blogging app, cover, an SD card reader and charging cable

1 x Garmin eTrex GPS with West, East and Central Topo maps (more on my Garmin experiences later)

1 x Sony 5M pixel camera and HD video recorder with associated charging cable

1 x Phillips hands-free portable voice recorder with an external mic

1 x Blackberry Bold cell phone with charging cable

1 x USB charger

6 x AA rechargeable batteries and charger

1 x 4 AA Duracell batteries for when I can’t find power

I think that’s the equivalent of 6 CPUs. That’s probably more processing power that the Department of National Defense in the ’60’s (and maybe even the ’70’s).

Hey, I never said this trip was “unplugged” did I?
