Like any physical object, there is is always a limit for physical abuse. If working around water (especially salt) make sure you get it dry and clean.
And unless someone if trying to steal it, it should not be used as club. An old Manfrotto monopod is much better for that.

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

I have a dead tree in my yard but I suspect a tripod would make a lousy axe..

I wouldn't advise trying to use one to hold up your car so you can work on it.

No matter how fast I go, there's always someone slower in front of me.
