About Carrie

Carrie's got the traveling bug and thinks "settling down" is overrated. Too many people to meet, places to see, and languages to learn!

  1. I can’t wait to see the movie. The last time I was south of the border It was a bag full of mini dv tapes to ship home, and editing later, rendering for hours. sucked. I’m planning a travel video ” the redneck RV” seven weeks across the U.S. I couldn’t believe the picture quality, editing speed, and options that are out there today . WoW my girlfriend is pissed I’ve spending so much time learning this new shit for our movie. The cool thing is we’ll be riding the same motorcycle from the old movies. I’m fixin it up right now. I’ll be happy to buy yours when it’s available. You can have any of mine free, but you usually get what you pay for LOL.
