7 Tips for Recording Your Next Cross Country Road Trip

In the summer of 2012, I decided that I would travel over 3,700 miles in my Rav4 from Washington, DC to my new job in San Francisco. I also decided that I would record the whole thing. After all, I'd be alone for over 2 weeks on my northern route that would take me up to Yellowstone before heading down through California. I'd need something to do. The video I recorded wasn't perfect. It didn't suck, but it also didn't blow me away like I wanted it to. If I was going to go on another road trip tomorrow, here's what I wish I would have known the first go-around. 1. Give yourself more time than you think you need. You don't want...

Manitoulin Island offers a soul-nurturing outdoor experience, sans cell and internet connection

Lake Huron island
At the northern tip of Lake Huron is a majestic camping destination called Manitoulin Island (translated to “God’s Island” in native Ojibwe language). The location is home to the largest freshwater island in the world, making it a luscious sanctuary for trails, festivals and wildlife.
