One shot time-lapse video of the entire length of Interstate 90, the longest highway in the United States Interstate system.

Average MPG: 30.1
Average cost per gallon (premium): $3.921
Gallons consumed: 179.3
Quarts 0W30 Mobile 1 consumed: 3
Total tolls: Almost $40, we got so angry at having to pay so many we stopped counting...
Camera: Canon PowerShot A470, paid $28 on eBay
Mount: sturdy suction mount, found cheap on eBay
SD card: 4GB
Software: CHDK running ultra intervalometer script

When those ran out, we burned through 14 pairs of standard Duracell AA alkalines, only good for 1.5-2 hours/pair
(Yes, we know there's an AC power supply available, but we didn't have time to source it and an AC/DC power inverter in time...next time, definitely...)
Editing: Final Cut Pro, on a Mac, thanks very much to my good friend Ben Dobyns for the hook up!
Soundtrack: some random audio suggestion YouTube gave me when I uploaded the video; I think it's perfect
THIS is what my wife and I do when we're bored. You have been warned :-)
