I've already been to states and regions too, and for me, if I went to nats it shouldn't be a problem. I taped whole printer pages into my field guide, by folding them into quarters, and everything was fine.
Nerds rule. Nerds are awesome. Nerds will someday (soon) rule the world. And you know it.

2010. Be prepared. If not, you f(l)ail!

I believe the 2-inch notes rule was a New York specific rule.

Heck yeah! I can't wait for birds! It'll be so much more useful in life then being able to tell reptiles apart, because birds don't scurry and hide (well, some do, but most don't) when humans come. I've never seen a wild frog or toad where I live.

But along with the greater interest will come tougher competition. More people will actually care about the event and will try to do well. I am looking forward to birds but I have to focus on Herps for a few more weeks. I can't believe nats is in 14 days. So much to do, so little time.

Great job making it to Nats. Maybe I'll see you next year in competition.

Might be OT: Has anyone started studing or preparing for birds? (Maybe I should make a new thread or something, becuase this isn't really about Herps anymore...)

I will do birds next year, but Herpetology will be sorely missed. Also I take offense to the statement that ornithology is more important than herpetology.

I'm sorry if I've offended you, I didn't mean it, but I, personally, have never had a use for herpetology (others will say differently, I apologise again).

Please believe me, I did not mean to offend anyone with that statement.
