sleep, listen to music, talk, read, eat.
I sing along to the radio and drink a lot of coffee.
Listen to podcasts(don't require as much focus as listening to audiobooks) or new CDs from start to finish.
In your situation, I'd try to sleep, if I could. I usually read or look at the sights if I'm the passenger, or blare music and smoke like a feind if I'm the driver.
Listening to audiobooks and music or just talking. And snacking obviously.
listen to music, sleep, eat.
Books on tape (mp3, rather), 20 questions, make up the life story of people in the car next to you (more of a ridiculously heavy traffic game, and our stories tend to get dark, heh).
I'm never the driver though, so throw in a couple of valium and a nap. :D
If you're driving, books on tape if you're sure it won't put you to sleep. MUSIC MUSIC. Force conversations with the passenger.
Listen to lots of episodes of This American Life.
SModcast and 20 questions.

talk about stuff and things, listen to music, smoke out the window.
I'm pretty easily pleased.
If that was me, there would be lots and lots of high bpm music, Redbull, and chewing gum. Try to stop about once every 2 hours just to walk or jog around the car or do some jumping jacks or something. It will help keep you alert. Have fun :-D
Probably too late now but I listen to audio books.
Read or listen to Sirius XM.
I get audio books out of the library.
LOUD music, which i know is bad for me, and snacks--mostly energy drinks.
listen to music, sing along, eat. I'm usually doing the driving.
THE ALPHABET GAME.
Try and find each letter of the alphabet, in order, on the signs along the highway! It's a fun way to be engaged with the driver if they're getting bored, without being dangerous.
