Re: How i do it
Yepp, agree to that check-list.
I did that once, and now..., whenever I go out the door (even for work) I just grab my Tamrac rucksack/backpack and I'm all set.
You see, the nice thing is that the Tamrac also have a room above the 'camera and lense dept.' for wallet with drivers lisence, Leatherman tool and other small handy/needy things.
There are of course times when carrying that Tamrac is a bit 'overkill', and then (in example when we were in Paris) I only carried the original Pentax shoulder-bag with camera/18-55, the extra 50-200 and spare batteries.
As for the Tamrac, all I need to remember is to fill it with batteries every now and then. Other than that it's packed to go and ready for any emergancy in a matter of seconds
