    I recall in the 90s a Saturday Night Live skit that had Levis coming out with "3 legged jeans"....

    This is a very good idea.

    Except...now we'll recognize who's an APUG'r because they will be the ones wearing one legged levi's....

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    FWIW - I was packing for a trip earlier this afternoon and found that if I take the ball head off my Bogen 3001, it fits perfectly in my suitcase. Wrap the ballhead in a towel and it's ready to go...

    My girl friend came up with this idea to, she said all of you people who fish out there to make it waterproof try this, if you still have those old PVC rain coats with the pance, the ones that make you sweat bullets all of the time. Cut the legs off and with a good sewing machine and some H.D. thread or fishing line sew the PVC at the bottom of the leg where the elastic is and on the top also, if you have any old water proof boots you do not like cut them into strips and sew them around the bottom of the leg inside and out and around the top also and to keep the top nice and tight use velcro to seal it from any rain, snow or water, this way it will be bullet proof. It might be a little more work but. We started to but mine together today.

    Oh, by the way she is a Blond with long hair and blue eyes.

    I have about 3 or 4 pairs of old Levi's. I slipped the tripod in one of the legs and presto! Works great. I just need to close the leg and patch a hole. Kinda cool.

    McGuyverismm works.

    Brilliant and stylish. Thanks for sharing!
