Video Adventure Is Calling
This is probably one of the best camera rail time lapse videos I have seen in some time:

Adventure Is Calling by Shane Black

Quote:This summer, two friends and myself all left
our comfortable jobs of six years to spend two months traveling across
the country and teaching photography workshops along the way. We all
felt that it was time to take a risk and get out of our comfort zones...
adventure was calling us. It was a trip filled with endless hours
cooped up in a van, exploring breathtaking landscapes, sharing stories
and laughs, meeting some of the nicest people, making new friends,
getting to meet old friends from around the country, and sharing our
love of photography with others.

This trip was a constant test for me, as we had such short and
limited time in nearly all of the spots we visited. In most cases, I'd
have to hurry out of the van with all of my gear and find a decent
composition in a very short amount of time as soon as we would arrive at
the location. It was a constant race against the light.

During those 2 months, we traveled across 32 states , visited 13
national and state parks, and drove nearly 13,000 miles in a (somewhat)
trusty old Dodge Caravan... with no cruise control. It was an adventure
that gave us many memories that we will all hold onto for many years to
come. I think that everybody needs to take a trip and have their eyes
opened to just how beautiful this world is and how much is really out

A big thanks to Coca-Cola and Flickr for helping to sponsor our trip.
Thanks also to everyone else that donated, attended our workshops, and
gave us places to stay!
