    Lee, if you are reading, how is this for a crazy idea: I know you use a 4x5 Horseman Monorail in the field. I have a line on a very reasonably priced Horseman 8x10 LX/C Monorail studio camera (with the digital DOF calculator). I presume its like your camera with the addition of the 8x10 back and front-standard extender post.
    It weighs in at 20lb, so I'd be with the 'baby-jogger' crowd lugging it into the field

    Dale,

    Not sure of exactly how similar the front standard is. The 4x5 front standard doesn't have enough rise to center the lens properly or have enough movement on the 8x10 with everything squared away. I'm not sure if the necessary riser for the front standard is swappable, but the cameras are pretty modular, so that wouldn't surprise me. I haven't ever used the Horseman 8x10 or the LX, only the LE. I use the monorail for shorter walks, longer lenses, and graflok backs, and a wooden field for longer, rougher walks and normal to short lenses. I've done literally tens of thousands of studio shots with the LE, so using it is second nature.

    John, did you get Dolly's check engine light fixed? Mine says I need a new computer. It only misbehaves when it's hot out, and then it's incorrigeable (sp?). Hopefully it will be fixed sooner than later. I'm getting a little tired of being tied down for lack of a reliable vehicle.

    Google pages can do lots of things. Yes, you can add photos and graphics. I don't know of any serious restrictions about what you can do, although they do want you to mark adult content and don't want illegal stuff posted. The agreement gives them the right to use your posted materials to promote google services without reimbursement, although the copyright remains with the original owner/poster. There is a limit on the size of free pages. You can sign up for free yourself and try it out.

    Yes, the code on her Toyota Camry said she needed a new Jaguar so I have put it on her Christmas list.
