Road Tripping Time of Year

Summer's pretty much here. Ready to hit the road? Although gasoline's been inching up the last month or so, driving travel might be less hassle than flying and its own set of preparations and endurances.

Seeing SNL's skit in March about "Californians" made me think about road trips. The "Californians" is one of several similar-theme skits that SNL has created over the years. The music is reminiscent of "Ventura Highway" by America. The seeming melodrama is offset by people recounting their driving directions during the conversations. Visit "The Californians Collection" and "The Californians".

If in the mood for listening to road-trip theme songs while actually on the road, maybe save choices to your device(s) ahead of time. The suggestions I've listed are from YouTube.

Some General Purpose Road Trip Songs
"On the Road Again" by Willie Nelson
"On the Road Again" by Canned Heat
"Me and You and a Dog Named Boo" by Lobo
"Route 66" theme song by Nelson Riddle

Some Road Trip Destination Songs
"Woodstock" by Crosby, Stills, Nash
"Kansas City" by Wilbert Harrison
"Georgia on My Mind" by Ray Charles
"Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd
"By the Time I Get to Phoenix" by Glen Campbell
Pack what you need, but don't sweat over items you can pick up later if you forget. Stay tankful with your road trip!
