How do you carry it?
I got bit by an 8x20 ULF bug 15 years ago and went berserk adding lenses, film holders, tripods, umbrellas, and every sort of accessory. I even made an aluminum 90 degree tripod adapter that will let me mount my 8x20 Canham vertically !!!. And I'm selling my 8x20 enlarger lamp house because I can't handle marketing monster Fine Art photos at art fairs any more. (See my latest classified ad)
I have been blessed with a wife that cheers me on and helps lug all this stuff around. But now, 15 years later, our bones are complaining and the fun and adventure is getting dulled by our physical limitations.
How do you carry your stuff? How far do you go from your car? Any hints on easily transported "trollies"? Any photos/hints of your solutions?
When we were young sprats we would backpack in the Western mountains for a week at a time with 40+ pound backpacks. But those days are over, so any suggestions about backpacking an 8x20 will fall on deaf ears...
It's just too much fun being a couple of old fossils with this monster camera, rubbing elbows out on the streets with people who have forgotten the rich legacy of film photography.
Thanks for your suggestions.
