Travel With Sound

Most of the time I choose to drive 2 lane roads to  the next destination. Sometimes I can’t go the slow way. If I have to go on an interstate I need to play music and podcasts.

Before I start the highway driving  I set up the traveling music and down load podcasts. I am not thrilled with highway driving (too fast, eats gas, scary big rigs, much traffic). So to ease my mind, and calm the nerves I have assembled my road trip music. The bluetooth on the truck’s radio no longer works, so I bought a little bluetooth speaker. I plop that on the dashboard, go to music on the phone and get ready to drive the interstate highways.

Music for the road

I put it on shuffle and start the engine. Helps to pass the time and the nervousness. Then, once I have listened to the mix multiple times I switch to downloaded podcasts.

The podcasts :

Recode Decode, How I Built This, Reset, Good Food, The Moth, and Call Your Girlfriend. I am hooked on Ronan Farrow’s voice, so I even listen to The Catch and Kill.

Anything to take my mind off of the nervousness of going 75 mph down a big-rig-busy highway.

    Love your song list!!! I recently had to buy a new radio for my tundra…old one died after 19 yrs. I found a super cheap Kenwood, with install and radio it was $150. it has bluetooth, picks up pandoras, Itunes and podcasts from your Iphone. I can’t tell you how awesome this little gem is! I’m not sure that’s in the budget?

    You have always had great taste in music and such.. I guess that’s why we hit it off and have always been so close.. Every time I go through the dairy aisle at City Market I think of the first time we met by you approaching Mahaila and I at!..Take care my friend, much love.

    Thanks for the sharing, I like “Out There” and “Women on the Road”, “She Explores”. And recently WNYc’s “Dolly Parton’s America” was very entertaining and informative too.

    I often do audiobooks on road trips, tho’ once did 2100 mile trip with nothing. Was good-in-brain thinking and planning.


    • Mas Prema says:

      Yup. With nothing on there is oodles of time to think and plan. I have not yet tried audiobooks. Thanks for the suggestion Lee.
