The other light stand came today. I was reading my emails and saw it said it came. When I go outside it's on the porch. I will set it up in the basement tomorrow to see how it is.

Yes I know this is going to sound crazy. Another light stand I ordered came yesterday. It got have real fast. I ordered it Wendsday and it was here Thursday. I decided before I leave to go to this club to take it in the basement and see what it's like. It's by ADJ and it was almost $80. I like the T-bar ones the best. Quick and easy setup. The one Chris suggested ihas a lot of pieces to it and will take time to setup.

it has a t bar... the added pieces are for extra tiers if you would ever want to add more lights...they were a bonus for the price.. but not necessary at all ... so now you have 2 extra tripods that would cost as much as the tripod to send back?

When it rains it pours. Got the new light stand and opened up the box. A plastic piece on the stand was damaged. That piece is to to help the piece to be screwed in to hold the bar stable is broken. UGH! What else could go wrong is got 3 parking tickets this week. I live in East Orange, NJ and parking sucks. You're not supposed to park between the hours of 2 and 6 am. You're supposed to be able to alternate parking sides Monday thru Thursday. I got a ticket on last Saturday morning. So I'm going to fight those tickets in court and see what happens.

You really can't make this stuff up!!! Mix, why did you not read the signs after the first ticket?
I have been living there for over 6 years and they made the signs for parking Monday to Thursday alternating sides. I got a ticket on a Saturday. Part of the issue is not wanting to park on Brookdale Avenue because they sell and use plenty of drugs on that block. Don't want to risk someone breaking into the van on that street. It's bad enough it happened right where I live at. So you're damned if you do and damned if you don't.

We don't own the house and besides there's no driveway to park in. Then I have seen others not get a ticket for parking overnight.

I recently read am article about an undrafted running back who got a chance with the Patriots and rushed for over 200 yds in a game. He had a huge opportunity in front of him. Bill billichek calls a meeting for 730. The guy oversleeps and misses the meeting when he showed up about 9 they sent him home. He never got another opportunity and never much more in the NFL.

He says his phone charger wasn't working, he didn't know it so his phone died and no alarm went off.

He totally blames his loss of his career on a bad luck/bad charger. He doesn't see how he shouldn't have stayed up late, should have checked his charger, should have made sure his phone had enough charge, should have gotten to sleepand should have had a back up plan.

3 parking tickets in a week is NOT bad luck. It's bad planning.

I really didn't to make this post but I will. Figured out the light stand that you Chris recommend. We figured it out. You need an Allen Key to open up the piece to put the T-bar on the light stand. Then just tighten the screws up. I remember I have a crank stand in the van I think. I was going to see if the T-bar will fit on there. If so I will use that stand for next Saturday's event.

Anyway I love the light stand you suggested Chris because the legs open real wide. So less likely to tip over..

One thing I don't like is that the pole that fits the T-bar in swivels. I tried tightening it up but won't for some reason. It should tighten up so the T-bar doesn't move on the pole. Don't know what that's about. I guess once you put enough lights on it then that will keep it from moving. I will test it out with some lights on it to see what happens.
