16GB iPad Mini Wifi Giveaway

16GB iPad Mini Wifi Giveaway

One of the fun things as technology gets smaller is to be able to take my music and books camping with me. The iPad Mini will let you do just that. Bring some family-friendly music (especially if you’re going to a campground) (and remember not to make it too loud). And then when you’re relaxing by the campfire or winding down in your tent you have access to your library of books, cool outdoors apps such as Pocket Ranger, NatureFind, Geocaching, and more! It’s a win all the way around!!
