    Thats wonderful! Are you on the same flight as me?

    Mine is flight CS881, leaving on wednesday time 0000, I'm still trying to figure out if that means tuesday or wednesday midnight.

    Can't talk now, need to pack, I heard they don't have any reputable camera shops over there, and I don't think they will take kindly to my request of turning back halfway should I forget to pack something.

    Don't know tripod need to check in or not.


    I'll be seeing you.......

    He's referring to my camera in my signature.

    I like to list my equipment list as it shows how much money I have, and the better equipment I have, the more pro I am.

    please bring solar charger for all your batt needs, i think there got no AC. dust might be a problem, i think you need vacuum seals for all your photographic gears.

    Pack at least 14 months of food and lots and lots and lots of oxygen on a huge spacecraft with enough fuel to escape Mars' gravity field for the return trip
