It will not matter if you have the thing checked out and brought to 100% 
best working proportions, if it is the only camera you take IT WILL 
FAIL...the gremlins will make sure of this.  

The rule when doing location photography is the further you are from a 
piece of equipment the greater your need for it (paraphrasing Carl 
S...and it is VERY true)  

This rule is doubled when on the road to some location where you spent 
$$$$ to get to and likely will never see again in this life.  So, as 
always, take some kind of back-up.  If you take the backup you will not 
need it and the M6, or whatever you take will work flawlessly.
