    I think I found my next LF hauler!

    At first, I got a used jogging stroller but my dog seems to be enjoying it a lot more (English Bulldog). And the studio Bogen I use falls off it. And the plastic walmart container with film holders on seat portion seems kinda heavy for it. I probably will not be doing any hiking and if I do, it'll be on a decent trail where people jog and mountain bike. One day sure,I'll get a backpack, a bowie knife, bear gun, camping gear and head off to the sunset with my 8x10. But for now, drive my sh**y old pickup with this thing, and go for a walk with it. Looks like my local home store has it for 70 bucks.

    And it will hold your Bulldog and his water bowl in case he's too hot!

    Yeah for sure! At least it's plastic and I can hose off the dog spit and hair easily. It'll go well with my rusty ol' pickup.
    Wheels looks like it has bearings which means I can probably service this.

    Bulldog? It's supposed to hold a Gorilla. Can't you read, Louis?

    I wouldn't have a gorilla unless he'd carry my 8x10 kit + tripod. BTW, Eric, how would you pack the tripod on this wagon (with the kit but w/o your puppy ... or does he accompany you wherever you go)?

    Jerry, if you are going to have a gorilla carry your 8x10 then you better put it inside some American Tourister luggage first!

    That commercial was awesome! Didn't Pelican did something similar like 10 years ago? You show them pics of your Pelican that went through hell.

    The wheel base is rather short. In time I will post my Alice backpack frame with two 12" pneumatic tires which means you can carry the backpack and when the going gets tough you can pull it behind. Nudge me to make it so. (I am still looking for larger diameter pneumatic wheels that fit a 1/2" axle.)

    My friend at work, ex-military, said he's looking for an Alice for me. He may have a few laying around. That was one of my other options. I looked at some external frame packs and look great but the ones I saw were top loading or front loading that wouldn't even open up enough for the 8x10. Will work for 4x5's though.

    I'd like to see this!
    Does anyone here work with vintage cameras?
