Metropolis Video Log – Road Trip to Metropolis, Illinois

And now it’s time for an extra special treat to wrap up the recap of my Metropolis road trip: a Metropolis Video Log!

Here’s a video I put together with some clips from the road! I saw so many Illinois roadside attractions like the I-57 Abraham Lincoln, the World’s Largest Cross in Effingham, the Super Museum, Superman Statue, and Americana Hollywood Museum in Metropolis. And, of course, I saw an ice cream eating contest! And since we were so close to the border, we just had to cross into Kentucky and back!

FYI: It’s kind of dangerous to take video while you drive. Kids, don’t try this at home.

FYI2: It is really hard to take photos (which will always be my #1), update twitter, AND shoot video at the same time. But that doesn’t mean I won’t keep trying until my technique is perfected!
