    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.

    I was at an event where one of the other photographers was using a "folding wagon" to cart around their cameras and BFG sports lenses. It seems pretty practical for lawns and paths. Not really wilderness ready simply because of wheel size. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OMM38TC/

    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 be interested in seeing your Alice pack mod. I have an Alice pack that I don't know what to do with since it's really too heavy for backpacking.
