good tripods that lasts a lifetime are usually not easy to take on a trip.

if you must take one, get the manfrotto 055 series.

I have a Manfrotto 055 and it's no picnic to drag around for any significant amount of time. I got a Benro Travel Angel, which comes with a ball head, and it's much more convenient. It's not real good with a 70-300 (which doesn't have a tripod foot) but it's OK with most of my other lenses.
