If I only had one lens, it would be the AF-S Nikkor 28-300 VR II. My copies are sharp end to end. I have one on my D800 and a second on the D600 most of the time. I use it on my hikes, walking along taking Landscape pictures at 28mm and then zooming in at 300mm for the Falcon in the tree. We also use them for Outdoor Events, but the 70-200 indoors for weddings etc. It is an FX lens and also works really well on the D7000. One of those dedicated to a D600 might be the only camera you use on that trip with everything else as back up.
As for a TriPod, I would be leaving my big heavy one at home and would take my Manfrotto 732CY Carbon fiber with 128LP or a lighter head.
