We're taking a road trip from Boston to Michigan this weekend, and would like to record some video along the way, just for fun. Problem is, we've got a cheap digicam with a lousy built-in mic. How can we record audio (two people talking, mostly) on the übercheap? [more inside]

Help me troubleshoot and enhance my roadtrip / move to Eugene, Oregon. I will soon depart Lawrence, KS for adventures that will eventually leave me in Eugene to begin graduate studies with UO. I'm going to outline the planned itinerary in the hopes that the hive mind can suggest areas to visit at our planned stops, beautiful or interesting routes to take between them, and interesting pit stops to make. Also, warnings of potential trouble spots or situations will be greatly appreciated.

By using Google maps, I can figure out not just how to get from point A to point B, but also the number of miles and approximate time it would take to get from A to B. Is there a map that will also let me approximate gallons of gas? [more inside]

My husband and I are going on a road trip this weekend and have plenty of places and things to do during daylight hours. It's just the two of us (yay, no kids!) and we'll no doubt chat all day during the drives, hikes, sightseeing. We need something to do between checking in and going to sleep. I'd like an activity that's cheap, and involves the both of us. [more inside]

How far can you travel in a particular state (geographical, not emotional) without leaving it? I was thinking about this the other day when travelling from Asheville to Kitty Hawk, NC, and I realized that it was an amazingly long journey to take all within a relatively small (but long) Eastern state.

Me and three friends are flying out to drive across America, mainly following the old Route 66. I have two main questions:
1) What's worth seeing on this route?
2) What should we be wary of?
Also, any other advice is more than appreciated.

Street, avenue, drive, boulevard, road, etc. What's the difference, or is there one? Purely out of curiosity, it seems arbitrary. Didn't have any luck Googling it.

Horror short story about a couple on a road trip, end up in a small town during springtime, fight with each other, have sex, then notice the townspeople are all climbing on top of one another, crushing and killing each other to make some sort of ?. Story ends when the couple joins in (WTF?) I read it when I was like 8. I thought it was a Stephen King short story, but wiki'd all of them (I think) and couldn't find it.

Road-trip filter. I am in the process of planning a rather ambitious honeymoon. He and I are canoeing in the Boundary Waters area of Minnesota for a week, which is exciting enough, but we are also planning to drive there. From Mississippi. And tent camping on the way.

Would there be legal issues with possessing a time-lock safe in a vehicle? I have a 10" x 12" time lock safe for myself which I use to keep credit cards, goodies or anything else I need to dole out to myself in small amounts. I'm leaving on a trip to California and it seems this item may cause issues if I were to be pulled over for any reason. Anybody know the law concerning this? Should I just leave it at home?
