|The Beast! (pic is near Thousand Palms, CA)|
On a lark, I rigged up our laptop and a webcam on the dashboard of the truck, set to take a snapshot every 10 seconds. Then I assembled all the pics into videos - one for each day - and added subtitles about where we were at most given points.
The end result is kinda interesting, especially in a time-lapse photography sense. Check 'em out!
Day 1 - Canandaigua, NY to Effingham, IL: Winter, Winter, Winter and Construction
Day 2 - Effingham, IL to Lewisville (Dallas) TX: Why the Hell Didn't We Go Through Memphis?
Day 3 - Lewisville, TX to Van Horn, TX: It's Flat, and Empty, but the Steak is Delicious
Day 4 - Van Horn, TX to Glendale (Phoenix) AZ: Is it the Heat that Makes Pretty Sunsets?
Day 5 - Glendale, AZ to Santa Barbara, CA: Crossin' the Mojave

We spent a day in Lewisville resting and visiting my wife's parents, too.
