    Carrying around LF camera in the back 40

    OK...I have one of those army A.L.I.C.E. packs---the medium size...both with and without a frame. I have a Toyo field camera and some lenses and all the trimmings....any suggestions on making it fit in said pack without slipping a disk?...or more importantly, without smashing it all up?

    Over the last few years I've read about the baby stroller thing over and over. So, I think geeze, how sad, all those old guys cant even carry a little camera. Fast forward till a couple of months ago. I picked one up at a garage sale. On a trip to Death Valley I finally used it.

    Well, those old guys are me, worked out pretty slick.

    MY army A.L.I.C.E. pack doesn't seem to have the correct attachment points to make that baby jogger useful....any other ideas?.....maybe something innovative on how to compartmentalize a big empty rucksack?

    Not just a baby jogger - check out a "Nordic Cab" - stroller, bike trailer, dog sled, ect - rated for 110 pound load and has a solid plastic bottom. I have been down this road and a NordicCab is one of the best solutions out there.

    I have an old wheel chair that was given me by a friend. I have refitted it to carry a couple of 4x5's and related equiptment, along with tripods and a bag of MF gear.

    check out some of the MOLLE gear backpacks, they will work quite well. Also, have read about folks using the fishing reel cases (hold one or more fishing reels) for their lens. If you do a search on here should get quite a few hits on the different ideas folks have had.

    Pretty sure Tom is looking for ideas of how to compartmentalize a pack he already has... the reel case is along the right track - anyone else with on topic ideas?

    I was just checking out last night some different backpacks. I found that if i take the rail off my cambo, it will fit in a think tank "street walker" back pack, which is fairly small. I am planning on picking one of these up very soon.
