MacGyver Moment

I was taking the camper out last weekend and had to get it hooked up to the truck. I don't have a backup camera and no one else was home. After a couple of unsuccessful tries I realized that I could control my camera with my iPod or iPhone. I wrapped the wrist strap around the tailgate handle and through one of the legs of the tripod. It worked great.
