    I thought this was super sweet

    For a couple years I've thought about carrying a small step ladder on very short hikes to known spots

    but that's crazy

    So I've looked for things that may work that are light in weight
    something telescoping

    bunch of crap


    Just now while looking for a short telescoping ladder for a nonphotographic cemetery hobby I found these things

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Portable...item3cc4875fb6

    http://www.safrut.co.il/English--Mini-Max.htm

    2nd link has a little demo video but the address and site looks like an STD

    just go the youtube video below

    Pretty neat. A little short, I think. I was hoping for something more like 24in
    but
    best I've found yet
    compact, sturdy enough to stand on



    Have you seen anything similar to this


    I'm gonna see if they can build taller ones

    Maybe it'll be obvious when you tell me, but what is an STD? I know it's not a sexually transmitted disease.

    Thanks for the link though. I love that little step stool. I think I'll get me one.

    I'd guess grave stone rubbings...at least I hope it's not any of the other things I could think of!

    Wow, I thought I was the only one that thought of herpes, the clap, the hivy, crabs and crohn's when I looked at websites.

    no kidding. Why would you need step ladder for short hikes? Get over fallen trees?

    That website looks like a trip to the computer doctor
    like if you click on something your life is in danger
    any moment I suspect to be "Taken" and have to rely on my nonweapons for hands father to rescue me
    or be sold into prostitution


    cemetery rubbings? You think I'm a dork? cemetery robbings. Sometimes the only way in those mausoleums is from above



    fallen trees?
    essentially
    Around here its hard to find a clean view of something everything being so flat for the most part
    step ladder and tall tripod could be enough
    ive stood on the pelican case before a few times and it does help but it's also short

    If I were really serious I'd use a ladder with camera attached
    you could hike a couple miles in like that maybe

    I'm not sure I'd stand on that thing.

    Looks like something you's see advertised on late night TV: $79.95, but if you call right now, you can get 2 for $9.99 + $70.00 shipping and handling. Let us know how it works out for you.
