Electronics, rain-forest and air conditioning on the ship didn't mix well.
- On the first day in the coastal rain forest, we were in a down pour for an hour and a half. My "water proof" backpack wasn't water proof and my Canon EOS Rebel got wet. Back at the ship, it didn't work. I took the batter out and opened it up for three days to dry. Still didn't work. Hung it on the railing outside our cabin for 2 days (in the less air conditioned hallway) and it worked.
- Bev's Canon EOS would fog up for about 45 minutes every time she went outside. Solution--hang it outside the cabin so it would stay warmer.
- About half-way through the trip, my laptop developed the blue screen of death. Back in our very dry house in MN, it is working fine.
- The vidiographer on the ship had to edit the DVD in the hallway because the equipment didn't work in his room.
