Thanks - when there's an old castle at nearly every exit, how can you go wrong?!BTW Bethe, I like your work. I can understand your desire to return to the United Kingdom.
At the time I got my second tripod (well, really 3rd, but I gave #1 to my brother), I figured I'd usually want a separate entire one for the 4x5. In retrospect, I could probably have gotten just a new head for the other legs (they can handle a good amount of weight). But the Berlebach is so pretty. I just need to make it easier to carry - the Manfrotto has an attached strap that's much easier to wander through the woods with.
