This post is for the techies and photogs.  Everything needed to bring you coverage of the 2011 World Rowing Championships in Bled, Slovenia:

-Canon 1D MkIII Camera
-Canon 7D Camera
-Canon Vixia HF200 Video Camera
-Canon 500mm f/4 IS lens
-Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS lens
-Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS lens
-Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens
-Canon 17-40 f/4 lens
-Sigma 8mm f/3.5 fisheye lens
-Kenko 1.4x teleconverter
-Canon Speedlite 580EX II
-iPhone 4
-Dell Latitude D830 Laptop
-180 GB external hard drive
-SD/CF Card Reader
-Extra SD and CF cards
-Manfrotto monopod
-Velbon carbon fiber tripod
-Manfrotto mini tripod
-Manfrotto super clamp
-Kirk BH-1 Ball Head
-Canon intervalometer (not pictured)
-Pocketwizard Plus II Remote Trigger (2)
-Aquatech rain cover
-BlackRapid Sport Strap
-Boat strap
-Back up batteries

Pretty much all the "expensive" items cram into a Tamrac Expedition 8x pack, while the non-essential items will go in the duffel bag.  The camera bag when loaded up weighs about 45 pounds and (barely) fits in an overhead compartment.  I will likely use all of this at some point, though hopefully not the rain cover!

Out of all this gear, the one item that TSA usually stops me for is the monopod. I would have guessed the remote triggers.  Now where's my passport??
