    Bill, you have done hundreds of extended photography trips during your career. In addition to the camera gear you take on those occasions, what other packing tips can you give us for when you must travel extremely light? We are contemplating an eight-day trip at some point when we can only take one medium-sized suitcase. Help!

    If you get a chance while you are here in OKC, the National Memorial where the Murrah building was is well worth the visit. I hope your visit is a good one.
