My love for camping began ever since I was about five-years-old. My parents used to take me to various national parks to get me acquainted with the amazing places in our country. It was a new experience for me, partly because I got to see a lot of animals and actually experience living in the wild, and also because I was lucky enough to spend some time with my father, who was also too busy with his job.
I managed to raise enough money to get an RV when I was about 28. Whenever I have some time off, I like to take it out and go camping. Sometimes, I don’t even plan my trips because I like a bit of adventure. Other times, I do a bit of research online.
One of the gadgets that have saved my life was a cheap GPS for RV that I got mostly because my buddies were all over me since I had no such navigational device. They told me that I would end up lost one day and that I would spend countless hours trying to find my way back home.
Because I wasn’t willing to spend a fortune on a gadget like this, I decided to go for a bargain. I should have been a bit more patient and get a more expensive one. I love to listen to music when I drive, and the model I won doesn’t allow me to do that. Of course, the audible instructions should be able to come through and let me know where I’m going and what lane I should pick, but still.
My taste in music is a bit odd for my age. I love The Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Eagles, The Beach Boys, Prince, and many other bands and artists that are no longer popular. I’ve always felt close to the music that could speak to me, which is to say that I don’t go for the beats. I also listen to the lyrics as I consider them an important part of every music-listening experience.
Sometimes when I am in a particularly good mood, I listen to Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and the legendary Elvis Presley. These three always manage to lift my spirits even more, so I keep on driving and can do so for hours on end. When I’m a bit nostalgic, I take a healthy dose of Alanis Morissette, Kansas, and Queen. It’s a tragedy that Freddie Mercury left us so soon. I’m convinced he would have created many other music masterpieces.
So, what kind of music do you listen to when you’re driving?
