Roadtrip Filter: I need advice on how to kill 72 hours in a mini-van, among other things. We leave on Friday.

So I am planning a roadtrip to Banff, Alberta from Toronto, Ontario and we leave this Friday (the 19th). We return on the 29th, so its only a 10 day trip.
I need advice on the following:
- We'd like to go through the USA on the way there (at least as far as North Dakota), but my friends have no passports. Is this a problem? I know technically its allowed, but we'll be 3 males in our early 20s, crossing at about midnight, in a rented mini-van, only one of us will have a passport (me), and we're claiming to be going to Banff (which is in the country we are exitting).
- What will there be to see in the prairie provinces on the drive back? Is there a good place to dump the bodies of bad travelling companions?
- How plausible is it for us to run a 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan for almost 36 hours straight each way? What if I start plugging in devices to the cigarette adapters (ie. XBOX, a tv, etc..)
Also, How plausible will it be for us, three young men to drive for almost 36 hours straight (in shifts)?
- Finally, and possibly most importantly, how do I kill 72 hours of downtime in a mini-van? There is a built in DVD player, and monitor, but I figure I can only watch so many DVDs when Jack Bauer's head is the size of an eraser.
Sorry for the disorganization of this post. I need lots of advice, so let me know your thoughts, please.
