, if you use it the right way. Rather than using it for the entertainment value, think of it as an instant replay. Record your trip. Make a note of all the white-knuckle moments (ha, like you're ever going to forget them, video or no video). Later, in the comfort of your own Airstream, review the video to see what you could have done— if anything— to avoid
the white-knuckle moments. Things like, "Oh, yeah, now I see. That lane was wide open, and if I had swerved over there instead…" After you get in the habit of looking for things like that in the video, you'll get better at looking for them in real time behind the wheel, too.
But if all you're doing is recording video and editing it to save just the most entertaining bits for posting to EwTube, that teaches you nothing.
