Prepping for Costa Rica 2011

In about 2.5 weeks BioPhoto Experience will be launching its first expedition and I'm psyched. Its going to be a great time for all and it will be nice to get away from work and winter back home. Even started packing my bags tonight in preparation for the trip. I know, kind of jumping the gun here, but I will be travelling for a couple weeks before the trip so I need to have everything ready to go soon. This also provides plenty of time to check out all the gear and make sure nothing needs replacement. I laid out all my gear for the trip and now I'm just trying to figure out how to get it all into my carry-on.
      The solar panel and battery backup should come in handy during those nights at Patilla and Nancite research stations where there is no electricity. Also, that little blue bag by the laptop holds a special treat - bat nets! I'm going to try and capture some bats for an up close and personal bat photography session. What other photo tour would provide that experience? We'll try our best to provide some other surprises as well.
      Well, better get it all packed up so I can get some shuteye, still lots of work to be done before I'm allowed to skip town. You can follow our Costa Rica  expedition through this blog January 2-9, 2011. We will update the blog all chances we have with photos and stories of events taking place on the trip. Enjoy the adventure and come join us on the next BioPhoto Experience. - Ashley

  1. Wow! You are so organized. Like the Arkansas hat. And the machete! Now how about your field clothes? That must be next.
