    Checked the rental car rates in Bozeman Montana for Mid Sept.and the rates at that time are back to normal. $32/day for a mid size SUV.

    Unless there is another reason to fly to SLC, Bozeman has a...

    Agree with Willie. I would have suggested a Bozeman Montana arrival and a drive down the Gallatin River to get to the West Yellowstone entrance and a return through Mammoth / Gardner MT, and up the...

  16. Re: Intrepid 8x10 Base Plate Modification

    True. But the camera tips the scale at 4.5# not 14# like my Toyo 810M. As a result I do not feel the need to be concerned about designing for maximum tensile strength.
  17. Re: Intrepid 8x10 Base Plate Modification

    But since you are adding two 3/8" screws to the base, its tensile strength requirements are less rigid in this application. A thicker aluminum piece I feel should be more than adequate.
