Photo packing list for 3.5 months in the North and East Greenland Nationalpark

Bellow is what I am bringing (or shipping ahead).
I am planning on having 2 or 3 TrapCams going more or less all throughout the season, so 5 cameras aren't that much really... ;) and the cameras need lenses too obviously!

Nikon D4 (main full frame camera)
Nikon D700 (main TrapCam and doubles as backup full frame)
Nikon D300 incl. MB-D10 (main cropped camera and TrapCam)
Nikon D200 (Timelapse camera and backup TrapCam)
Nikon D3200 (TrapCam)

AF Nikkor 10.5/2-8 DX
AF-S Nikkor 14-24/2.8
AF-S Nikkor 17-35/2.8 (to be used with TrapCam)
AF-S Nikkor 50/1.4
AI-S Micro-Nikkor 55/2.8

Flash and flash gear:

1 SB-900
1 SB-26 (as backup)
2 Pocketwizard plus III triggers
2 Pixel King i-TTL triggers
1 SC-17 TTL cable
1 SC-29 TTL cable

1 Gitzo tripod
1 Monfrotto tripod
1 Monfrotto monopod
1 Hilmer-Koch groundpod
1 Wimberley Sidekick
1 Acratech GP ballhead
1 Manfrotto ballhead
2 No-name ballheads
1 Manfrotto monopod head
1 Servocity wireless remote control pan and tilt gimbal head

1 Lastolite EzyBox TTL

Plenty rechargeable camera and AA batteries

Ironically, with all this equipment, I mostly walk with only one camera and two lenses plus tripod or monopod (mainly D4, 14-24, 200-400 and Gitzo)... because I also need to carry fieldwork equipment and radio, signal pistol and rifle.
