Awesome! Are you doing the whole 112 day tour? My travel agent couldn't find out how many people were on this tour? Apparently people will be coming and going?

I'm taking a wide variety of tech. Will need it for the photos, blogging and just general keeping in contact. It should be fine security wise. Perhaps a netbook is a good idea as it doesnt weigh very mch.
