I'm really pooped. After 20 minutes walking with a folding monorail and tripod, I seem to get really tired. I'm not unfit or anything, but I'm starting to think I am.
Looking at luggage options, I'd really like a decent pack mule or a 4 person sedan. But as I'm just about scraping enough for my study courses, it's not happening. I absolutely love the monorail; and absolutely need the tripod. None of that is going to shed any of its weight. So I've got to figure out a way to carry it along with 10 darkslides; roll film back and a coupla filters with a meter, a bottle of water and some packed carbohydrate and glucose. I tend to wear what I can and carry the rest until I break out in sweat.
What do all you Lifers do? Any portable solutions around this? I'm not planning to make it up to Everest with the monorail - just small hills, around 500metres - without calling the ER team.
