Flip it! Flip it good!

How does one keep herself entertained while driving some 2,000 miles from Eau Claire, Wisconsin, to Tempe, Arizona? Why with an hour-by-hour update into her shiny new Flip camera of course! And I have to tell you that this project was more of an on-the-fly idea than anything else. Yes, a week or two before my trip, I did head to Best Buy to visit with Jim (the super-awesome sales consultant in the camera/video department) to buy my first video camera, ever. But it wasn’t until I was two minutes outside of Eau Claire and hit my first (and only!) detour that I thought an hour-by-hour update would be the most amazing idea. And it truly was! I had so many ideas, connections and insights running through my mind during this four-day drive! And I captured them! On 89 videos. Yup, I had an 80-plus-hour drive. Jealous?

Having trouble watching the clip? Check it out on YouTube!

You’ll have to forgive the awful camera work. Did I mention this was my first video camera? And that I was driving?

But here’s what’s important:

Amazing the difference an hour makes! (Can you believe that was just the first one?) Needless to say, it was an intense four-day trip from one side of the country to the other!
