Have DSlR, Will Travel

This past week marked my first major trip 1 with my DSLR. The extra baggage forced me to re-think my packing, as I had to check a bag. The question is, “Was it worth it?” The trip in question took me out to Portland, Oregon for my national denomination’s Biennial Conference. It was my first…
