A reader wants to know how the digital photographers out there deal with long trips. Do you buy lots of memory cards, take a laptop or somehow download photos on the road? Send in your responses and I'll summarize.

A recent article in USA Today had some terrible advice on the subject:

Take a tiny printer. ...Print out your work in your hotel room or campground and have them scanned to share with friends and family via the Web at a local cyber cafe or when you get home.
Or you could take Polaroids of your favorite shots on the digicam screen...
