We did it! The donations and the items I sold on Craigslist, but mainly the donations, have helped to reach our budget for this trip.
We raised enough money for a plane ticket, a single room by myself (too old for a hostel), some food, the passport renewal, and a GoPro HD Hero 2. There is a video as soon as you load the site that is all footage from a Hero 2. This little camera will be a huge help with our video reviews and should help us get some really great shots.
Thank you to everyone for helping me with this opportunity. I didn't know how many of you read this or thought it would be fun to throw money at me. Some of you literally... Thank you, again.
I truly appreciate it!
I am going to try and upload pictures and videos on a daily basis over there, but we'll see how that goes. Thank you, again!!!
