I would flip my 3 week trip to Florida where my best friend lives, since I live in Colorado and have only met her once before. Plus the first time meeting my boyfriend down there to. We plan on going to a lot of different places and one of them is the Munchies 420 Cafe which seems oddly interesting. Plus since I am working on my photojournalism major I would be doing more traveling in the future and would love to capture the experience since I only have a big bulky camera that I don’t even own but am borrowing from a family member. I have seen people on youtube promote flip and would also like to use mine to branch out on there as well since I’ve wanted to since 2006. There is just so many things I want to use the camera for and I want to take it all over my travels.


From Kenneth on May 24, 2010 :: 5:00 pm

A different member in the family picks a place located within 100 miles of our home and we go hike. Would have been great to have this on our last to hikes to The Aztec Caves, and the Hueco Tanks national park.
