    This talk of adapting baby strollers, and the like, got me to thinking about a little red wagon, an all terrain wagon ATW, <grin>

    I'm not sure the pulling of heavy loads up hill would not become unstable on rocks & what not.

    The jogging stroller has much larger diameter wheels & you're behind the gear load so better monitoring of gear lose & cart flip over.

    That said,,, maybe a member with kids, an off road Radio Flier & a ULF camera gear would give this a try & let us know.

    Re: Large format carrying stroller

    I havenīt been able to carry my Toyo 810M with only one lens, since 2 wonīt fit, in a LowePro Phototrekker, plus a side bag full of filmholders and an Induro tripod appropiate for the task with a Bogen 3047 head on it. No matter how strong or physically fit you are, it is simply not a hiking outfit in rough terrain. Still looking for a solution. Now, the only thing I can only think of, is picking a smaller format like 4x5, when going out into the wild.
    I hiked to 16,000 feet with a monorail 4x5, 20 film holders, an 8x10 tripod with a big head and 3 lenses, and it worked. Incredibly strong wind with sleet, snow and hail, made shooting barely possible, though. The next trip I made the same hike I took an RZ67 outfit with 3 lenses and it was a great shooting experience. No contact prints from that trip though. At least I could gasp for air while focusing. LF is not always better.

    Pack mule?
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.
