Today we visit an 80-90′s era throwback and stop at South of the Border right at the South Carolina and North Carolina border. This place is beloved by people who used to visit here as kids. The buildings are bright colors and there are giant animals all over the place. You can do just about anything here. You can eat, sleep, camp, get your car washed, shop, buy fireworks or just take a break, walk around and stretch your legs if you are on a road trip.So if you are heading down to Florida from the northeast South of the Border is a great place for families with kids or the young at heart to stop over night or just for an hour or two and get out of the car and have some fun.
Today while in Georgia we visit the infamous Jekyll Island home of the famous meeting of America’s richest men (Robber Barons) as they devised a plan to create the Federal Reserve banking system and destroy the value of our currency. Regardless of the evils that took place on this island decades ago it remains a beautiful place to visit and you can even take a boat cruise for some dolphin sightseeing just off the wharf.

I shot a video comparing the in-camera audio with the audio of the Rode SmartLav and one of the viewers asked if the mic could be plugged directly into the camera and used that way.
