While this is an interesting idea, there's a couple of things to consider.

One is that taking a frame every 10 seconds as the camera is moving and
the scene is changing will result in an extremely shaky video that
induces motion sickness. Viewers will need an airsickness bag. The thing
to remember is that time lapse that is worth watching requires a stable

Another consideration is that there are boring sections of trail that
aren't worth seeing or remembering. There are certainly a lot of those on
the CDT.

I'm not trying to discourage the idea, but it would be a shame to do a
huge amount of work on a project like this only to find that no one wants
to watch it.

The concept might work well as a slide show if the dull scenes are edited
