random Tip - Protect yourself and your gear

Go to your local sporting goods or discount store and buy a handful of cheap rain ponchos. My local store sells them for 88 cents each. Toss a couple in your main camera bag, (one for you, one to drape over your camera) Put another one in the glovebox of your car, and every other camera bag, or box of gear you have. Sometimes I tape them to the inside of the box lid to keep them out of the way, yet easy to find.
