I have finally received good news about some gear/corporate support!
Cotton Carrier has agreed to donate a StrapShot Cotton Carrier, which is going to be a great piece of gear to help me carry around my camera while backpacking! It’s a velcro-strap that wraps around your backpack strap but has the advantage of coming with a tripod plate on the front of it. Simply place their adapter at the tripod attachement on the bottom of you camera and you can store it in one motion. It also comes with a tether cord to help distribute the weight and prevent the camera from falling.
And a huge money saver comes Around About Cars, which is offering me a discounted rental vehicle for my trip!
Thank you to my new supporters!
