I find that the DSLR is my main camera on a big trip, but the P&S tends to be my "night time" camera. It comes out when we go out to dinner, etc. That's funny, because the DSLR has much better high ISO performance. But the P&S is very convenient for shooting at dinner, etc.
I'd say about equal, depending on what kind of activity I'll be performing. For instance, going to the beach or dinner at night, the P7100 takes precedence. When sightseeing or for general walkaround, the D7000 gets the job.

It is a compromise that each of us decide to make. Quality or covenience?
I am with Ned. I always go for quality. I rather pack my best camera and tripod since I don't know whether that will be my only opportunity to take my best shot. I have seen and heard many around me saying...Oh, I should have brought my best gear to capture this wonderful scene. Oh, I missed a wonderful opportunity that perhaps will never come back. I always say to myself that I don't want to experience the same feeling.
