Have more kids, wait for them to grow up enough, stick a lens in each of their backpacks. Voila... a more flexible camera kit, courtesy of your own genetically-engineered Sherpas. That gets you a 14-24, 24-70, 70-200, and a 24/1.4, plus a couple of speedlights.
+1. . Thanks also to sandycrane and tehboogeymay for posting cool pics!
If you're really going to do one lens, it would all depend on your shooting style, in which case your past is your future.
If I had to do only one lens on an FX camera, it would be a hard decision, but it would probably be a 5x f/1.x (50 1.8, 58 1.4 Voightlander, 40mm Voightlander, or a Zeiss, depending on my budget and how much I like the lens). Way too useful, IMO, for street photography and general photography. However, I would do my utmost to also bring my choice of 135mm lens (lots of good choices here at several budgets) or maybe a 105mm Macro lens, and then a 24mm lens (or wider) (equally useful for street photography as well as general walk around, IMO). Tuscan landscapes, IMO, really want a 70-200 tele zoom as well.
Reality is, I would not personally take full frame were I to go again, I'd take my Olympus EM-5 (in body VR) and essentially the same set up (25mm Voghtlander, 60mm Olympus, 12mm Olympus, and then a tele zoom).
