As soon as I get rid of a box, I immediately need it.   :(

Check out F-Stop.  I have the "Loak" bag and I can get A 5D3, 24-70mm, 70-200mm, 24-104, batteries, grip, flash and other stuff.  But they have a lot of options. 

Only thing is they take forever to actually send you the bag. But if you can wait you will get a clever. good quality bag.

""Without knowing more about your preferences I'd suggest something like the following, which is close to other SF-to-Vegas/Vegas-to-SF itineraries I've seen on other sites.   

- Vegas to/from Grand Canyon.  Consider stops at Valley of Fire and maybe Red Rock Canyon on the way to California.

- Death Valley - Will likely be very hot, potentially over 100degF during the day, but still worth considering at least a morning drive through for many.

- Drive up 395 to Mono Lake for the tufas; possibly swing by Bodie ghost town.

- Take Tioga Pass into Yosemite, to Yosemite Valley.  Beautiful drive, many visitors only see the valley but I really recommend Tioga Pass.

- Leave Yosemite via 120.  If you're dead set on Sequoia, head south, but there are stands of sequoias in Yosemite, and near San Francisco.  As I understand it though, the ones in Sequoia are more impressive.  Problem is the distances there are large and speed through the mountains slow and will eat time. 

- Head to bay area.  Probably via 580 if you're just headed to the SF area, but I'd REALLY recommend taking 152 to the Monterey/Carmel, one of my favorite areas for a weekend.  Big Sur & Point Lobos are must-sees in the area.  From there, I'd drive up PCH/Highway 1; lots of nice little towns along the coast as others have mentioned.""

Spot on!   I'll  second Cali_PH on this.

Ok, now my brain hurts! ???

I have the F-Stop Loka with Med Pro insert (ICU) and I love it.  You might look at a large insert even take a look at the F-Stop Tilopa backpack its bigger. Im jamming a 5d3 w/grip, 70-200mm 2.8 is L, 24-70mm L, 24-105mm is L. Extra batteries.  That all fills the insert (Med Pro ICU) to the gills- my flash and extra bits I put elsewhere in the back pack itself.  I guess I'm saying you might look at a bigger bag and/or insert (ICU) if you want to carry some clothes or other travel bits. 

Now - it will take FOREVER for them to get the bag to you.  While they make a great bag, and I really mean that, a GREAT BAG, they haven't got ahold of how to stock and deliver their own products.  Their bags must be made in small batches and seemingly only delivered a couple times a year.  But if you can gather the patience and go about it with some humor and don't mind calling them a lot you'll be very pleased. They do make a top quality product... it's only in the delivery Dept. where they fall down.

Along these lines, rule of thirds and such, I once heard a thing where they, who ever "they" are, studied what our eye is attracted to and in what order. 
It went something like: Brightness, Color then Dark. 
So our eyes tend to took at the brightest thing/area then the most colorful thing/area then the darker thing/area.  And if we can compose the shot around that we can keep the eye moving around the picture thus making a compelling photo. 
Like I said it went SOMETHING LIKE THAT. 

Is anyone familiar with this and am I even close in my recollection?

I think the key is going to be having a L lens with weather sealing. I'll bet you are good to go with that and a little care on your part.

Oh and I have to +1 what Chris Geiger had to say about sensor cleaning.  Knock on wood but 5D3 self cleaning is a little bit outstanding. ;D
