Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photo Walk Help

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but tomorrow I will be participating in one of the Scott Kelby's Photo Walks. It's going to take place in our downtown area. First let me say this is a small city, no big skyscrapers ,but there are many lakes around and I know birds will be up for grabs as far a photo ops. My question is, we'll be walking for several miles by the time it's over and wondering what would be the best equipment to carry around for that kind of distance. My thinking is my Canon 40D, my 10-22 and I'm trying to decide whether to carry the 70-200L 2.8 or the Tamron 18-270. I was also thinking of putting the external flash on. I know I should bring my tripod, but I just don't think I want to carry it for that long. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated as this is my first Photo Walk.

Thanks much.

"The equipment you leave behind is what you will need most"...well atleast the quote goes something like that lol.

If you are brining a backpack, tie the tripod on, you will probably need it for something but if you feel its going to be too awkward, leave it behind, im sure someone will be brining a tripod. id bring the 70-200. If you are pretty handy with a flash and feel you dont need it, dont bring it but if you have questions about flash, bring it, far easier to explain things on your own equipment.

Sorry for the late reply, enjoy the walk! or atleast i hope you enjoyed it if you are back already

packed lunch!

Re: Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photo Walk Help

~written entirely tongue in cheek~

I'm sure Scott is a really nice guy. But I'm sorry, he's got a D3 and that bugs me. Why? Because I want one!!!

On a more serious vein:

It would be really nice if guys like him and Bob Krist came up above the 49th parallel to do some of their seminars. I'm sure that a lot of photographers up here could benefit from a "masterclass" like that.
