buy 2 or 3 trash give away tripods. (light stands are only good on flat surfaces and are normally not as sturdy as tripods) get your 2 or 3 speedlights (light, easy to use, cheap. PWNS ALL!!!)
get some wireless triggers (PWs are great, spend ur money, you save it on the tripods)
if you want get some elbows and light modifiers as a 2nd step. (get elbows with or without the tripod depending on how you can mount the speedlights)
Batteries are KEY!
Make sure you have a nice large bag to carry everything comfortably... trust me, after a day of shooting all you want to do is grab your gear and throw ur shots on a computer. you wont rly stay and pack up all your stuff nice and neat like you did the night before or morning of. i dont have a car so i walk with ALL my gear, and after a while you WILL want to spend that extra coin on a good bag to easly carry it.
kinda of a big post for a tiny question. :D
Did you say "You ski way to much!!"
Is that even possible?"
