What gear to bring on a road trip as a photographer?

In August 2017 I was traveling with a friend of mine from Europe. We drove together from Chicago to Yellowstone National Park. I had a hard time to decide what to bring - and ended up with lots of gear in my trunk. Why this was a good decision in the end and made for an awesome travel video.
