    Alright so next Friday I leave for my 3 week trip to Israel/Palestine. I am going as the photojournalist on the trip, its my first big trip so i'm super excited and a bit nervous.

    We'll spend 1 week in Bethlehem living with host families and volunteering at the Bethlehem Bible College, a special needs center, a center for the blind, rebuilding homes destroyed by the Israeli attacks and helping out at some refugee camps. From there we'll spend 2 weeks hiking around the desert looking at different historical and Biblical sites.

    I think my gear list is looking pretty good for the trip, you guys see anything that I may be missing?

    Canon 40D
    Canon Xti
    17-85mm
    28-135mm
    50mm f/1.8
    10-22mm
    16gb worth of cf cards
    2 batteries for each camera
    Laptop and 250gb external hard drive


    Any other tips or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Since you are taking 2 bodies, I would rock a 30mm prime and a 85mm prime and call it a day (Good excuse to get some new lenses :mamoru:). I assume it'll be very dusty where you are, and it's good to not suck in dust with zooms.
