You might consider putting a datalogger in there attached to the
GPS.  The OziExplorer web pages used to have a link to a device that
was small and could record several days worth of data.

You might also put your GPS into a different tracking mode.  Use
timed recording instead of the "auto", if you're using a Garmin.
That way it'll record a waypoint at regular intervals and you can
adjust the interval to the number of trackpoints (usually 1024 in a
Garmin) and the length of your 4-wheeling trip.
