I once went cross country. My father was newly stationed in Maine, so he bought a Dodge Ramcharger that Summer, loaded up the entire family (Mom, us kids and the grandparents), and we drove from California, along the coastal states, stopped in the South, then up to New England. An amazing experience, and probably one of my last favorite family memories before our lives broke down, shortly thereafter.
Focusing on the bright side, this road trip consisted of AM radio and a worn out Pablo Cruise 8-track that drove me nuts.
Pablo Cruise - Love Will Find A Way
Elton John - Benny & the Jets
O'Jays - Used To Be My Girl
Nicolette Larson - Lotta Love
I feel wanderlust kicking in, and another road trip must be had. Some thoughts on a soundtrack...
Sun Kil Moon - Trucker's Atlas
The Durutti Column - Sketch for Summer
Smashing Pumpkins - 1979
Boz Scaggs - Lowdown
Toto - Georgie Porgy
The Black Ghosts - It's Your Touch
Digital Underground - Sons of the P
Zapp - More Bounce to the Ounce
