Bixby Bridge in Big Sur, California. I've been shooting variations of this around sunrise & sunset for the past 3 years.

Of course, the other problem is getting hotels last minute, which will be difficult in some locations.
Great point! I forgot to mention this in my post, and could be a big factor.
When I travel throughout a state, seemingly at random, I either sleep in my truck, find a campground, or find a forest/area that allows dispersed camping. I'm out all day adventuring, including many times hours after sunset for astrophotography, and up a couple hours before sunrise, so I would have very little time in the hotel, and it makes for what I deem a waste of money.
Granted, this is not for everyone, and I know some people who absolutely have to shower every day, or have to sleep in a bed every day.
If not though, you can fit in quite the adventure during your time for pretty much only the cost of gas
@Tolusina, @SoullessPolack, @Cali_PH, thanks for your amazing advice (and to everyone else for your contributions)! We're going to book the flights this weekend (just under 3 weeks in CA), so then it gives us plenty of time to decide where we want to go and to plan a draft itinerary (without being too specific).
I recently bought some Think Tank Red Whips. They're made for cable management, but I mainly wanted something to add to my tripods; I use it to strap down my camera strap and shutter release when it's windy to prevent them from swinging around and causing vibrations.
Would you know if Red Whips are strong enough to hold up a flash? There are times when I'd like to put flashes in places where I can't use a light stand and no flat surface for the flash to stand on but plenty of bars/branches/whatever to hang from.
2020 is getting closer every moment.
- You can’t charge the battery while you’re out shooting (unless you buy the standalone battery charger), but you can charge it in the car etc., so it’s a bit of a convenience tradeoff
It seems to me that putting big lenses on a compact body kinda negates the advantage of compactness. That leaves the great sensor as an advantage, but still, the practical advantages over say a 5D3 or D800 are not that great.
Your mileage will certainly vary!
I keep hearing this argument but let's be honest, who doesn't appreciate a few less grams? It's when the body is so small comparative to the lens that it creates such an imbalance that it is even less comfortable than the same lens + larger body that it really negates the value. Adding a grip onto the a7/R might be more comfortable say with a 24-70L attached than with a 6D and the same lens - weight is weight, or lack thereof, in my opinion.
