Hmm, so you upgraded to FX and kept the old DX lenses. For your trip I'd buy a cheap DX body and take the DX zooms. It will be more compact and lighter than the 750, though not as weather resistant.

When faced with a backpacking trip of a lifetime I ended up buying an Olympus OMD5ii and pancake zoom, and when I had that stolen I replaced it with another plus 14-150 - way better than hulking my nikon FX kit around and the IS makes the long zoom perfectly useable. For panos and wide stuff I just used my phone.
