[GEAR] - Alaska packing loadout

I'm heading to Fairbanks, AK for a week and have two nights scheduled in Healy with the intention of visiting Denali National Park. It's considered the shoulder season (most places shut down around 15-September) so hopefully there will be some semblance of life and access to nature. Since I've never been to Alaska, here's what I am hauling out there.

Tamron 15-30mm ƒ/2.8 (Nikon mount)

Sigma 35mm ƒ/1.4 (Nikon mount)

Sigma 85mm ƒ/1.4 (Nikon mount)

Mamiya RZ67 film body (eBay link)

Mamiya 50mm ƒ/4.5 ULD (eBay link)

Alpine Labs Pulse remote camera trigger

Kingston USB 3.0 Media Reader

2x Black Diamond Storm headlamp

Fenix PD35 flashlight

Nikon SB600 & Cybersync receivers/transmitter (see the post on my travel strobist kit)

Sensor Gel Stick (see the post on dust bunnies and cleaning your sensor)

120 film

Digital Assets:

11" Macbook Air (2.2GHz i7 with 8GB RAM)

2x Samsung 850 PRO SSD drives in generic enclosures
