So many decisions !!!

(or " Just TWO bags ? You're kidding, right?)

Well its packing time. There are way to many decisions. I put everything I could think of that I might want to take on the deck behind my house. I took some pictures. I thought you might want to share. The slide show is available here

If you can't access the video on the slide show you can see it here

Manatee challenge #3

Make a Packing list for yourself.
What would you take on a Bahamian Reef Survey Expedition?
(remember the goals and purpose and responsibility of this expedition)
What are the three most important things you would take on this expedition?
Explain your choices. Include pictures! (in your Field Notebook)
What one thing would you most like to take? (Why?) - this would make a great entry into the "comments."
One more thing - all of your gear and supplies have to weigh less than 40 pounds !!

Good luck!


Take what you will, but ...

leave only bubbles

The three most important things I would brings is an underwater camera. I would use it to take pictures underwater. Next, I will bring scuba-diving equipment. I would use it to go swimming. The last thing I would bring is a flashlight so I can explore dark caves.

The three most important things I would take on the expedition are scuba diving equipment, an underwater camera, and a journal to write information in. I'm not sure if the scuba gear is less than 40 pounds though. The thing I would most like to take is my dog. I want to see if she can swim. My dog is a miniature poodle, so she is around 15 pounds.

I will have a hard descion choosing what to bring. But the things that I know I need to bring is a phone,swimming clothing,and a toothbrush. I have picked these for a reason. I will have to keep in touch with my familey and might need a emergency call. I also will have to go into the beautiful San Salvidor water. My last thing that i will need to do is brush my teeth. I can not stand going anywhere without brushing my teeth. That is the 3 most important things that I will bring to San Salvidor

The three most important things to bring would be: a cell phone, diving equipment, and an underwater camera. I would bring them because, you might need your cell phone in case something happens to you. I would bring the diving equipment so you can go into the water and visit the corals. And I would bring the underwater camera so you can take pictures of the things you see to bring back home and show people. Thats the three most important things to bring.

The three most important things I would bring other than clothes on the trip would be. A field notebook for information, some diving equipment, and an underwater camera for taking pictures of coral and fish. That is what I would bring on the trip.

The three most important things I would take are a mask,snorkel,and first aid kit. The mask because to keep the water out of my eyes as I'm viewing the coral. The snorkel to be able to breathe underwater while viewing the coral. Last a first aid kit to help if i get hurt. The thing i would most like to take is the lighter colored teddy bear with the red shirt. This is because it is so adorable.

If I could only bring the three most necessary things on this trip I would bring: a wetsuit, the most basic and light-weight scuba gear, and an underwater camera. I would bring a wetsuit so I wouldn't be freezing while I'm diving. I'd bring scuba gear so I would be able to see underwater and be able to breathe. Most importantly I would bring the camera so I could have pictures to show my friends and family the true beauty of a coral reef.

The three most important things I would bring are: An underwater camera, some light-weigt scuba gear, and a journal to record notes in. The camera is important, because I would need to take pictures to show friends and family the amazing sights I saw on the trip. The pictures I took with the camera could also be useful in writing down notes. The scuba gear is also very important while I am diving. With the scuba gear I would be able to see and breathe while underwater. Using the journal, I could record notes about things I've seen during the trip and questions may have.

If i was going scuba diving the three most important things would probably be a mask, fins and a waterproof camera that took pictures and videos. That way i can see, swim easily, and record what I was doing

If I was given the oppertunity to bring only three items to take to San Salvador island with me they would be, a set of scuba gear to explore the coral reefs,a waterproof camera to take pictures of the things I see,and a fishing rod to catch different type of fishes and and have the chance to explore their different characteristics. These are the three items that I think would benifit my expedition.

1 pair of shorts
1 pair of shoes
1 pair of sandels

3)Other stuff:
A tooth brush
A bar of soap
A flashlight & battereis

The 3 most important things that I would take are:scuba gear, a camera, and a flashlight with extra battereis.
I would take skuba gear so that I could dive down deeper and stay under the water longer.
I would take with me a camera so that I can take pictures of everything under the water.
I would take a flashlight on the expedition so that I could see clearer under the water when it gets dark.

The thing I would like to take on this expedition is a tooth paste.
I would want to take this so that I could brush my teeth during the expedition.

If I had to bring three important things on the expedition in San Salvador. I would bring my passport, a laptop, and a underwater camera. I would need a passport to get in and out of the country. If I didn't have my passport, I would not be able to enter or leave a country. Second I would need a underwater to take a pictures of the coral and anything else underwater. Third, I would need a laptop to upload all the pictures I take underwater. Also the laptop could be used to write documents about what I see underwater. I would also use the laptop to keep in touch with family and friends. These are the three most important thing I would take to the expedition in San Salvador.

The three most important things I would bring would be: Scuba-Diving equipment, an underwater camera, and extra clothes. I would bring the Scuba-Diving equipment because I wouldn't be able to scuba dive without it. I would also bring an underwater camera so I can take pictures both above and underwater. And, I would be able to share it with other people. Finally, I would take extra clothes because I would need something to change into after I was done diving.

I think the three most important things to take on the bahamian reef survey would be scuba and snorkeling gear, a waterproof camera, and a notebook. I think that the scuba and snorkeling are very important because it would be very difficult to dive or see underwater without it. A waterproof camera is also very important for taking pictures and video underwater. And a notebook is also a very important thing to take so that you can take nots and list facts and questions about the spieces you are studying.

i think the most important thing to take on the bahamian reef survey is the scuba and snorkeling gear. this is because without it you would not be able to see anything underwater and you wouldn't be able to stay under water for very long.
