The Magic Camera Phone
One of the biggest reasons I wanted an iphone is for the "Roadside America" app. I know it's silly to buy a phone just for the app, but how am I going to know when I will stumble upon the largest ball of twine if it's not listed on a map! I look forward to exploring the odd, largest, smallest and one of a kind roadside attractions on this trip. Once I plugged it in on my phone, I found out that the world's skinniest house was located within driving distance from me! How amazing is that?! Just what I was looking for!
lost in South Dakota and drove around for hours only to camp in a place in that was going to be the center of a severe thunderstorm. That was an adventure.
Also, you can download a fun app that takes photographs from your phone in old hipstamatic style, such as the two on this blog that I took. It might be old news to you, but it's a pretty amazing little computer...this iphone. I am not sold on the coverage and service so I will also have a pay as you go phone from Verizon just in case I need to call for help while a bear is knocking on my tent door.
I wonder if there's an app for that?
