Thanks all I have also fashioned a strap which helps and put the weight on my shoulders with the tripod and camera (tripod collapsed) at my waist much more comfortable, for the longer hike, and that link was really helpful

I can be a lazy photographer and then I leave my tripod at home or I can get serious then I take my camera bag (trekker or mini trekker), tripod in bag with shoulder strap and small camera bag with head. I assemble at each location then put it all away to move onto next. In reality it only takes a few minutes to deal with. I can attach to my pack(s) but find it just as easy to put tripod bag over my shoulder. It is just all about commitment, if you are going to commit to using a tripod you need to commit to a little extra work. Well worth it in my opinion.
Buying a Nikon doesn’t make you a photographer. It makes you a Nikon owner.
