Default My New ATV! (all terrain vehicle)

I getting old, I guess. It's becoming a real pain to tote my 30 odd pounds of camera gear on my back in the Lowepro. This plus a monopod or tripod, assorted gear which won't fit into the backpack and so on has made trips to the zoo, etc., less of a pleasure than it was 40 years ago. I'm getting so that I like to have several cameras with me and opening and closing the backpack, putting it down, putting it back on, and so on has become such a chore that I've gotten grumpy.

My wife took pity on me I guess and today presented me with a new ATV which solves the problem perfectly. I haven't had one of these for about 55 years, but I'm as proud of it as I was when I was five years old!

Highly recommended accessory for the rest of you old duffers who still love photography but are smarting from the load. :-)

Lin

Great Picture, I read your comment before looking at the pic. Fell-out-of-my-chair-laffing!

Please take care of that classy woody!

Those are some great ideas. I'm thinking "big bicycle wheels" on one of these, you know, for rough trails

LOL Lin, for a minute there I thought you were in your second childhood with an ATV, I never came out of my first. I think Brooks has you beat, why walk when you can ride.

Hey guys,
You got that right! Why pull when you can ride! Brooks has a definite winner there! Actually there is a whole "cult" devoted to making these little wagons into "vehicles"

Here's a website which sells plans!

By the way Tom, there's a new firmware version just out for your D60!

Best regards,

Lin

Thanks Lin, I downloaded it along with the instructions. Iím a little apprehensive about installing it, my motto is, if itís not broke donít fix it.
