I tend only to use a tripod when doing night shoots and extended exposure to aid camera stability. I'm off to Lanzarote on NY Eve, although a few miles away from the main event in Puerto Del Carmen, I'll be catching the NY firework display using my 100-400mm and tripod, whilst sitting in a beachside bar, should be a good night.I'm a tripod addict. I've got about five of them which I use for different stuff. A really heavy one I use for night running races and a lighter one I use for off-camera flash.
One I use for hiking/photographing ultra marathons (I tend to do a fair few miles on these) and a couple of small ones such as the Joby Gorrilapod for when I want to go really light.
The best way I find to carry a tripod around, when hiking, is not to attach it to a rucksack, but to attach a sling to it (using cable ties and some metal clips) and to carry it around like a back-slung rifle.
There were some low rise flats in Dulwich, just down the hill from the old TA RMP centre which had similar fences.
