Isn't that the truth! These days we have so many options for how to set up a rig (which is sweet), that there is no real "best," but merely best for one's typical use, or best because that's the way you like to do things, etc.
Which is why I like that the OP stated his use case for this specific trip (vs. asking what is "best"). It made it easy to lay out some options within the framework of his trip/rig.
daveb: I always enjoy your posts - great blend of electrical/technical and "actually getting out there" trip reports -- both of which I look forward to reading
