During my earlier road trips, I found it quite difficult to describe in words what I was experiencing. Try showing the 'immenseness' of Death Valley or Matanuska Glacier in pictures , and you'll understand. The next best thing to being there is video.
So I got myself a GoPro Camera about two years ago and rigged a spot for it on my roof rack, and that solved that problem. In really snowy weather, I attach it with a suction cup holder to the inside of my windshield.
Then an old friend who works in Broadcasting suggested that I shoot 360 degree clips to give viewers a better perspective of the surroundings......so I started doing that too!
Thanks to the advice from friends and the little adjustments and tinkering from me, you get to enjoy some raw footage from my trips!
