I am driving across the country and shooting at various locations in the country. I have about 6,000 ft of various 16mm kodak film stocks. The majority of the trip I will be in the car, any suggestions on how to store the film during the trip?

I'm no expert, but I would say as long as you are comfortable temp wise, the film should be OK for the trip. I obviously would not leave it in the car with the windows rolled up while you stop for lunch in Arizona. I don't know what you're options would be if you wanted to do that. Maybe bring a big box to put the film in, and throw some dry ice in there for safety?
