Packing for China

So -- I am packing for China and at the suggestion of  my friend The Grillmaster, I am bringing my 4x5 with me to China.  I will shoot only roll film and it seems like a win.  All parts packed, it looks like 25 pounds, plus film.

What I am taking:

Wista 4x5 Field Camera
Schneider 90 mm lens
Schneider 210 mm lens
Shneider 135 mm lens
Manfrotto Carbon Fiber Tripod
Slik Tripod Head
Shen Hao 6x17cm 120 Roll Film back
Wista 6x9 Roll Film Back
Shutter Release (2)
Shower Cap
Filters (about 12) and Adapters
Magnifier (2)
Light meter and Spare 9V Battery
Kitchen Timer
Magnifier for Ground Glass (2)
Lens Cloths
Dusting Bulb for Lens
Hacky Sack

What I am not taking:

Rodenstock 55 mm lens.  Although it covers 8x10, I can't get it to focus in my camera, becase it runs into the camera body before it get short enough to focus.  It's possible that I could fix that ... 

Polaroid holder.
4x5 film holders.
4x5 film.
