Date: October 17th, 2010
Starting Location: Hudson, Wisconsin, Exit #2 on I-94
Destination: Fountain City, Wisconsin, along the Eastern bank of the Mississippi River
Elmer's Auto and Toy Museum (no video or photo footage allowed inside the buildings)

Distance: 98 miles via back roads and river highways
Trip Highlights: The gorgeous view from Elmer's, looking down on the river valley
The Dodge Viper club parked on the side of the road as we shot past them
The BMW Z4 driving down the road with the front end destroyed (looked like it hit a deer)
Motorcycle w/wife trying to get themselves killed....

The video is a time lapse, 14 minutes and change, I JUST uploaded it, so it may not be available yet. Video was filmed with a standard definition widescreen camcorder at max settings, so video quality may be a bit "blah" due to the time lapse compression.

Please let me know what you think...

I think I'm going to be sick now. Good thing the roads weren't too twisty.

Very Cool Video Chris!

Wish we could have been there, but too many scheduling conflicts.

That music would make me want to drive fast. It was perfect for your video.

I think thats pretty nice. I am involved with video editing and I know the time involved with recording/editing! Nice job. How much footage did you actually have? 14 minutes on time lapse... You musta had a ton of recorded time.

Thanks, Chris, for the video! I wish I had a Fiero so I could have gone along!

I love it near the end, after 12 mins or so, because it feels like you're all cars on a roller coaster =P.

I had over two hours of recorded video just for the run, not counting anything prior or after the actual run.
I tried to shorten the length of the video, but then the time lapse became difficult to follow, and got jumpy, which caused headaches for me.

Negative. I have one, it is not installed, sadly. Takes up a LOT of room... I want to build a car PC using MiniITX and a smaller flat panel than the one I have currently.

How bizarre, I was just watching our local PBS station’s “Almanac” program. I stepped away for a minute and when I came back they were playing Chris’s time lapse video. More recognition for our little cars. Way to go Chris.

Hey, Would I kid you? They came back from a break with it around the 25 minute mark. Don't know what was said or if there was an intro. Had kind of a WTF moment as I thougth there was something wrong with my TV getting my desktop signal. HuH!

I checked, last night's show it not up on their web-site yet. I will check back later.

That is awesome. I am on http://www.tpt.org right now and I see last week's episode, waiting for the updated one.

Wonder how they found it... That is too cool.

The next thing we'll see is Synthesis on a PBS pledge break; for a donation of only $120 we'll send you the "Best of" DVD collection. How about a new series: "This Old Fiero". Good work, beautiful part of the country.

Jeff, just got home from the haunt and watched it on their site... They showed the start and then cut it down to Fountain City....

Wow! It has been up since Monday on Youtube... I wonder how they found it, and what they were looking for when they did.

That is pretty kick ass!
