A7R: How many batteries should I carry?

I’m heading out for my first extended trip (landscape) with my A7R. I get up at sunrise and stay out until dark and only have access to power in the evening. With my Canon 5D mark II, I carried four batteries and normally use about three per day (with live view). I know the A7R batteries do not last long, but the good news is they are half the size of my Canon batteries. So what’s been your experience with the A7R batteries? How many should I do you carry for a full day of shooting?
