    I have one and it is an amazing camera. AMAZING! I'm too scared to take it on overnights with me though, but if I went to Wind River, I may get over that fear.
    Really looking forward to your trip dude.

    Their actually a pretty tough camera that is well sealed, look at what the pro's put them through in some pretty extreme weather. I read a review a couple of years ago where they subjected some pro level Canon/Nikon DSLR, which the 5D certainly is, to some serious weather with no ill effects but I can certainly understand your concern... At the lofty price of an arm and two legs I'd never get it out of the house if it was slightly overcast....

    I even bought mine in St. Thomas which was tax and duty free and it still was really expensive. But, I needed a good camera while on the ship and didn't want to miss all the photo opportunities.

    I just have a problem of being a little careless with my stuff out in the woods and would kill myself if I broke it.
    Man, you and you're friend are going to take some beautiful photos. I'm so jealous!

    Wow! that looks like an amazing place.
    If you're gonna get a p&s I'd go with a canon (and I'm a nikon guy).
    Good luck,

    Did you get your tarp?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    It's not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body,
    But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
    Woo Hoo!....What a Ride!
