Re: monopod as walking stick?

I agree.  Haven't found the exact monopod/walking stick combo, but feel my Manfrotto 694CX monopod w/quick-release Manfrotto 494 RC2 has a better chance of giving me the best of both worlds.  I do outdoor photography in all seasons, in rugged Alaska, so I try to use that system sparingly.  I have my trusty, light old wooden stick with a metal tip screwed into the bottom and a soft strap for carrying for most of my hikes, and it's the exact height for my camera.  Yet, I will be using my monopod as a walking stick while on my long snowshoe trek out there tomorrow.
