I just purchased 3 month in advance tickets for 2 people (7.00 each) for one day access to the Wave in Coyote Buttes

It is on BLM land located on the border of Southern Utah and northern Arizona (6 mile wilderness hike with only 10 people allowed per day) late in July, its going to be hot but wonderful! I will be hiking my Mamiya RB 67 system with Ilford Delta 100, and Fuji Velvia 100 and 50 if I can find it. Is there any other film I should consider. I have 6 backs 3 in 6x7 the rest 6x4.5 in working order but only have 4 darkslides, and one functioning instant film back. I am really excited to do this day hike. I have rigged a belt case for my Soligor Spot meter and am set up for BW with a B+W Yellow #8, and Tiffen #25 Red filter, and some color work without filters. Want to get a clip on lens cover for the soligor though
wish me luck!
Are there any tips for hiknig medium format cameras on moderately difficult hiking trails?
The RB system with 50mm and 90mm and a 2x Tele adapter + a Manfrotto Tripod and pro ball head takes up a bunch of room in my day pack! My main goal is to keep plenty of water on the outside of the pack! I am thinkning of getting a collapsible film reload tent to reload my backs, but I am not sure how much film I can expose reasonably in 5 hours. I really wish I had a second RB Pro s body for this hike.
