Maybe a phone as worst case backup.

Sounds good to me. The 70-200 is pretty much duplicated by the 80-400. The 50 is within the range of the 16-80. OP: Keep it simple.

Thank you both.  Yes, maybe I should just bring the D500 with the 2 lenses.  We also have a little Panasonic ZS100 that I can bring (better than a phone as backup, but much much smaller than the Z6!).   I may pack and weigh everything - if I'm over on weight, perhaps that will help with my decision.  I appreciate your input! Thanks!
