Summer is vastly approaching and I am sure many of you are getting ready for epic road trips and adventures. I thought it would be a good time to give you a quick review of the 86 nights spent in a tent during my 100 day photography adventure of 2018. Below are a few thoughts on a few campsites of the trip. If you have any questions on a location or itinerary feel free to ask away. Likewise, if you have any thoughts or experiences that you would like to share, please, shout out to me in the comments below. Mahalo!
