Romantic Camping Trip Goes WRONG

Posted by admin

It’s a classic movie premise. Boy and girl leave town for a romantic getaway and everything goes very wrong. Is the disaster their fault…

In the movie SPLINTER the romantic camping trip appears to be interrupted when the couple is kidnapped. There also appears to be something hunting them in the night. Scary and Intense!

You may want to watch this movie AFTER you get back from a successful romantic camping trip. You don’t want to give your partner (or yourself) any nightmares while camping in the outdoors.

At this point there was no stopping me. Quality video or NOT, I was determined to make a something. This was my challenge!

After adjusting the lighting (best I could) and hacking through some practice takes I finally made it through a recording without fumbling my words. I realized that making videos requires not only good equipment, but practice in front of the camera. I have a new respect for video bloggers!

I made a new YouTube account at and uploaded my video. Check it out over at YouTube or you can see it on the homepage of
