Campaign to Camarillo 2012: Step 3 – Lets GoPro, Man

IMAG0258

One step at a time right? I was very fortunate and blessed to get this. I was planning on buying this in stores for the $300 price, so I borrowed $200 (he later asked for $60 back) from a friend and planned to pay him back. I held off on buying this for a bit, and then while checking craigslist I find a listing thats selling it for $250. I managed to talk him down to $240 (20% off the regular price) since I had to drive about 40 minutes to meet him and I had $240 in even bills. I meet the guy, buy the camera, and call up my friend. He says don’t worry about paying him back the money, and to consider it a late birthday present. I was only paying $100 of my dollars for the camera, plus his money. Since the debt is excused, I pretty much only paid $100 for it. When life is working for you, it’s a sweet, sweet thing.

Trying to get the right angle for battle. And a peak at my messy room. The only thing I don’t like about it is that you kinda look like a goober with it on. Oh well, thats the price for good footage.
