    Re: Use of Tripods on NYC street

    I always have a visible white hardhat, yellow safety vest and big orange cones in my white F150 and drive real slow in some areas...

    Many workers straighten up when I cruise by, as the thing looks like a supervisor truck.

    Reflective tape on tripod legs is a good idea!

    I am adding fake fleet #'s and TIN CAN COLLEGE in small print.

    My last truck with TIN CAN COLLEGE on it, got me a verbal cross examination going in to Canada. Business is examined at borders.

    you guys are too funny. the only problem with diguises in nyc comes when the nypd terrorist patrols ask for id n permits, you are then shipped off to gitmo for water boarding n interogation. fake id?


    best bet is shoot n run!

    been to NYC twice, 1964 World Fair was fun and 1978 when it was scary, my host experienced a murder in his car, when a pimp chased a hooker into it, no connections, he got the car back and later burned it...

    never again...no more big cities for me

    Stayed in Rockaway which reminded me of Rogers Park Chicago

    Lived decades in Chicago, dodging muggers, shooters, killers and worse. Even got attacked on my motorbike by 2 hookers blocks from where I lived. They tried dragging me off it, I let the clutch out quickly. Another one I knew well, I would let Purple in at 5 am after a night of work to hide from her pimp and the Police. We told each other stories past dawn, then she slipped away. No we didn't.

    Now I won't even go to a city.

    I have posted this before, shot by me with Kodak 126

    It would have to be after De Blasio is long gone.

    One year at Photokina in Cologne I was walking back from the show to the hotel, a few blocks away, in Deutz. Halfway back a Gypsy woman with two kids approached me. She had an opened newspaper in her hand and, as we approached, the two kids got behind me and the woman started waving the paper in front of me while one kid tried to grab my briefcase.
    We struggled a bit and I finally punched her with my free hand.
    They took off and reported it to the hotel owner at the front desk.
    He reported it but nothing came of it.
    We had stayed at that same hotel every other year for Photokina for more then two decades and never had anything like that happen before or after that one incident.
    Anything can happen in any city!
    And we frequently walked the streets of old town Köln and Deutz very late at night. Including walking across the RR bridge after midnight.

    Bob, I can always find trouble

    and have in EU, Canada, Mexico and USA

    I also have 100's of stories about struggle, strive and trouble, I was a salesman too...

    I find every human has a story if we listen

    but my Gypsy stories are mostly one way, they tend to be quick and private

    I had a nice looking woman come up to me when I was in Chicago 30 years ago. She asked me if I knew where she could get a drink? I swear I didn't have a clue, so like Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory I pointed down the street to a pub, ha! Then she said something like do you want to buy me a drink?, finally dawned on me. I stuttered no thanks and ran back to my room.
    I still laugh when I think about that. I'm a lummox from all appearances, probably never looked like a good target.

    Koln, I remember drinking cold lager beer in a jazz club down not to far from the Dom. The glasses calibrated in centaliters. CL.
