"Tripod suggestion for D800E with super telephoto lens?"

I took the plunge today on a D800E after my local Nikon dealer dropped the price. They let me check out a loaner last week for a few days and I was hooked. I have a Gitzo 2227 Explorer tripod that has served me well for years with my landscape and macro work, but the offset center column design can be a challenge with my 500mm AFS, D700 and Wimberley mount. I feel that more stability with a second tripod is in order along with honing my technique to get the most out of the D800E with my long lenses. I sometimes shoot from a blind, but am just as likely to go afield or travel, so weight is a consideration. Thanks in advance for your suggestions on an appropriate tripod.
