Well it looks like my trip to Tacoma will be happening. I'll be there from probably the 22-27 of this month on business. I'd like to take my camera but I'm not sure I'm comfortable with taking it along and having to leave it either in the car or in the room since I'll probably be in meetings or driving/riding a company test vehicle during the day. The times I've asked about a safe the hotel says it isn't large enough for my camera. I'm going to be travelling with at least 2 laptops and my carryon so I might have to check baggage as well. I'm just worried about my DSLR getting ripped off from the car or room. I'd take a P&S but I don't have a decent one any more. I'm leaning towards just leaving it at home. I probably won't have much time for shooting anyway. What say ye frequent travellers? TerryB, Mr. Hickey????
