Camping isn’t just about the destination, it’s also about the journey. Yes, we ripped that wisdom off from somewhere else, but it applies so well we just couldn’t help ourselves.
We begin thinking about the journey when we’re packing our gear – tent and all. What route will we take? What will we see or do on the way? What road food will we stop for? What games can we play in the truck?
Music is always a big question. We like to enhance the journey with music that gets us in the mood for being close to the land – roughing it, you know? And with a family of all ages, we have to be strategic about it. Will they be begging for something different within five minutes? The music has to be fun, the words have to be easy to understand and the sound has to be classic to satisfy the older and the younger man in the car who both have a real penchant for almost anything old.
That’s why we love classic country western music. Our playlist always includes Johnny Cash, Junior Brown, Ray Price, Willie Nelson and Chris Ledoux. Here’s our list of favorites… what classics are we missing?
