    I could see coming back to find the ladder missing! Perhaps larger pads placed on the bottom of the ladder would help a bit.

    Interesting, the concept is beginning to form in my weak gray matter.

    This is one of the reasons I keep my old Crown and Speed, if somethaing very bad happens I can live with having to replace it, I can shoot with TriX pushed to 800 in Acufine at 1/100th with a decent f/stop hand held or on a monopod. I don't shoot color in 4X5, is a 400 speed color film available in 4X5?

    I visited Clyde's studio a few summers back....the one in the Everglades on Tamiami trail......I saw a good sized alligator in the swamp water on his property! The water there isnt that deep I think Clyde just doesnt like to be up to his azo in Alligators....
