    Hi there, thats alot of gear you have for someone who just started photography. I started photography 3 years ago but look at my signature. Lol.

    May I suggest that you leave the 70-300 behind. The 80-200 f2.8 you have is great in low light.

    I think if you don't want to carry all your lenses, you have to think about what you're intending to photograph.
    Don't try to bring all your gear, coz the weight will just piss you off, and you might end up NOT carrying anything.

    hahhaa sometimes it's better to not have so many lenses
    I carried my 18-135 and 50/1.8 to Bali recently.... coz those were the only lenses I owned
    Exploring! :)

    Since you are on a driving trip, why worry about weight ?
