Quick update here, I’m heading off for home (Montclair, New Jersey) in a few hours, by way of San Francisco. I’ll be in the NJ/NYC area until September 10 and then in San Francisco until the 15th, before I head back to Kansai. While at home I’ll probably also make a brief visit to DC for a couple of days. I’m going to try to stay mostly off-line and read more books while I’m at home, but anyone in those areas feel free to drop me a line and I’ll see if I have room in my schedule to meet up.
Just for fun, here’s a (hopefully) complete list of electronics on my person and baggage as I travel.
iPhone (SIM-locked for Softbank, Japan)
External extra battery for iPhone.
Creative Zen Vision:M 60GB (Just in case I run out of iPhone juice entirely.)
Samsung Blackjack (my old phone from last time I lived in US, intend to use with prepaid SIM card while at home.)
Some junky generic Motorola phone (my travel phone when going around Asia. Just in case.)
Asus eeePC 1000
Canon 50D w/ two 8-GB memory cards, 3 batteries and a charger
^ Canon 50mm 1.8F lens
^ Canon 17-85 EF-S lens
^ Tokina 11-16 lens
Sharp electronic dictionary
External USB hard drive (backup of my important files, to leave at home as ultimate emergency off-site backup and swap for a fresh backup drive.)
