Things we learned while filming a road trip sketch this weekend

A good way to find gorgeous scenery is to look near signs that say "danger rock slides".

When filming a scene where a driver's eyes aren't on the road, the script may call for other riders to feign fear, but often it is very real.

When planning to drive up and down mountains for several hours, consider getting gas first.

A roadside stop suitable for an actor to pretend to pee, isn't necessarily a good place to ACTUALLY pee.

Girlfriends, who haul everyone there in their own car, consent to be filmed in ridiculous costume, or allow you to use their fancy video camera in the rain probably deserve really nice Valentine's presents next year.

Motorcycles tend to ruin audio levels.

No matter how much of a go getter you feel like for waking up early, there's always some asshole already jogging in the mountains.
