Help with Equipment for Cycle trip please.
Dec 17, 2012

Ok,

I currently have a EP-3 and various lenses and a phone that can take picture ( although not that well) I NEED some help. do I take the EP-3 and say the 20mm, buy something else smaller lighter? I also was looking at uploading pictures to my blogsite at the end of each day. now I don't intend to take a laptop as will be carrying everything myself and can't see that I can connect the camera to the phone? do I go for a good phone camera? is there one? do I go for the new Samsung that has it's own internet link? HELP! Below is the reasons why this is so important.

At the end of September 2012 I cycled from Portsmouth 2 Penzance (Lands End) solo and unsupported. My intention, to raise as much money as possible for Children In Need and to complete the journey in a week. This was also be a personal challenge for me as before I created this site I haven't been a cycling in years, have a prolapsed disc, am 47 years old and a bit over weight ! well a lot really. Well I  raised over £800.In preparation for this l also did the Randonee (round the IOW in a day, cycled 70 miles )
