Well the road trip officially starts Friday, but I’ll be packing and getting ready all day today and tomorrow. Finally got all the last bits of Nigel squared away, including her stickers and cruise control.
Thanks so much to all the fantastic employees at Shelor Motor Mile Subaru (especially Michael in the Parts and Accessories department) for the new car parts and at Main Auto Spa for all the hard work they put into making my old girl sparkle inside and out.
Now we all know how boring those 2700 miles I’ll be taking can get, even with brand-new scenery, so I’m asking for your help, Constant Readers. I’ve gotten a bunch of new music for the trip, but I could use some suggestions. If you go over to my last.fm profile, you can see my overall top artists plus what I’ve really been jamming to the last six months or so. Anything alt. rock (especially lesser-known stuff) would be right up my alley.
So feel free to leave me a comment here (or wherever it gets publicized) with an artist, album, or if you’re feeling really creative, an entire playlist! If you need to email me something, just let me know, and I can shoot you my email address! The music you suggest will help me both get to California and through the writing of my dissertation this summer!
Finally, if y’all are interested in this trip (or know someone who may be), please feel free to give me a signal boost along the way.
