Road Trip 2011 – Melbourne to Perth via Adelaide and everywhere else

7 days until I depart on this long awaited 3 week, 8,000 odd km road trip to Perth and back.

We’ve done the daily itinerary planning and made the packing lists.

Technology on the trip goes something like:

On the dash:
HTC HD2 – Windows Mobile 6.5
– Primary navigation device.
– Running OziExplorer CE with local map files

Samsung Galaxy S – Android Froyo
– Stephen’s phone (Optus)
– Secondary nav, lookup on the fly (Alpha of OziExplorer Android)

Blackberry Bold 9700 – OS 6
– Telstra
– Trapster

GoPro HD Hero camera
– 720 video record of entire trip
– 32gb card emptied every day

Not on the dash:
Samsung Omnia 7 – Windows Phone 7
– my phone (Optus)

Canon 40D DSLR
– Stephen’s primary weapon

Canon S3IS
– my camera

Dell Latitude E4310 13″ laptop
Dell Latitude XT2 tablet
2x 2tb USB drive (backups)
2x 320gb USB drive (backups)

Telstra NextG Turbo Modem
– internet access

I’m not sure if that’s enough gear….
