Be prepared for trips!

I got in Vermont on Sunday, thinking I had everything I needed. I had Camera, flash, 2 sets of batteries for the flash. (I didn't bring the charger, because I figured a week and 2 sets of batteries. I'm fine.) I was wrong. I got here, and tried to trigger my flash using the V2s. That didn't work. My flash wouldn't even test fire. I tried my other set of batteries, and it wouldn't charge. Where I am in vermont, I am 15 minutes from cell service and about 45 from a store that would sell batteries cheap. Luckily we went to a store today. Bought some Kodak Extramax batteries, Cost a bit more than i'd normaly pay for alkaline batts, but I don't want them to die.

The lesson, always bring the charger.
