Uploading photos is simple; you can use the album facility:

You can find the instructions in the FAQ;

Good luck with the conversion,

One tip is you might want to resize any pictures you take prior to uploading them as this will be faster, If you are running windows XP, i recommend using the Microsoft power toy image resizer.

If you are thinking about sleeping in it at this time of year and you have 4 days, I'd insulate it (sides and roof) and carpet the ply lining if you have one. Make sure you can take the sides off later to run your electric behind or if you know where your units are going do it now.
That's your first 2 days.

Forgot to say, get some thermal binds for the front and side windows.
