identifying trip photos

I travel with a GPS or two, a digital camera, and notebook(s).  The digital 
camera gives each image a number.  That number goes into the notebook with 
the GPS reading and any notes, IDs, or comments I can come up with relevant 
to each image.  That leaves no room for doubt later.

My camera uses 4-digit numbers for images, from 0001 to 9999.  If you reset 
the counter to zero at the start of your trip, that covers almost 10,000 
images.  I've never run out on one trip.

My advice is to download each day's images in the evening into a separate 
folder.  Then you know where to find any given day's images, and your 
camera memory probably won't run out before the next day's suppertime.
