Yes, and that was a major plus for the gf....

Don't equate nice things with having money and don't equate having money with being able to just buy anything you want. Most people have money because they don't spend it.
+1 youve got your head on straight

Nice mount. I had to look up what "dowels" are. Feel pretty newbie for that one.

I love DIY projects but lack motivation / tools to do them mostly, however this is one that I can sink my teeth into.

Holding the gopro in your hand just does not cut it. Some good, cheap ideas here.

Thought about it...but then got the retractable one for $20 folded fits in my shell pocket. Wow. $11 on Ebay...Camera-Handheld-Telescopic-Pole/251129390716
