Playlist: Nevada

Nevada! Here we are in the Silver State, home to the loneliest highway in America. Although we are only cutting across the southern tip, we have designs to return to the great open north in cooler times. So here’s a few tunes to keep you company as you sweat it out to the next gasContinue reading “Playlist: Nevada”

Playlist: Arizona

Buckle up, folks, because we have some miles to cover and some great songs to settle into that plush 1973 bus seat (yeah, I scrapped mine out of a junkyard in New Jersey so they don’t fit quite right). We have a healthy dose of tunes to get us across The Grand Canyon State.

Playlist: Utah

Utah–one of my favorites. I used to come out here to visit my sister when she lived in Salt Lake and I simply fell in love with the only state to have six straight sides and more BLM than any other state. And yet there are so few great songs about this great state. ButContinue reading “Playlist: Utah”

Playlist: Colorado

One of my favorite and most-visited states–Colorado gives us plenty to sing about. The Mile High State is beautiful and rugged and filled with tons to see. No doubt we will be back again and again. But for now, as we explore the south and west of this gorgeous big box, let’s turn up theContinue reading “Playlist: Colorado”

Playlist: New Mexico

State number 31 for us and one of my all-time favorite places. I went here as a kid and then as a teenager. I’ve been back several times as an adult and I always find something else to fall in love with. The red dirt and blue skies. The hoodoos and rivers and adobe buildings.Continue reading “Playlist: New Mexico”

We went to Mexico!

We were right there on the border in Presidio and we figured, “How could we not?” So we went. Yes, every single Mexican person laughed at me for not knowing Spanish. Yes, I only had American dollars and, no, I did not notify my bank that I would be out of country so my cardContinue reading “We went to Mexico!”

Playlist: Texas

Man, oh, man. We are in the west now, folks. It’s good to breathe the dusty air of the Lone Star State and drive the open roads (even though there’s more pickup trucks than people down here). Let me give you a healthy helping of songs to keep you sustained on the long lonely roadsContinue reading “Playlist: Texas”

Playlist: Louisiana

We are merely scraping the edge of the Pelican State to catch an interview or two and eat until our hearts’ content and our stomachs’ uncomfortably-full content. While we languish, here are some tunes that feel like the bayou and mention some locales from the only state with parishes instead of counties. Also, worth noting:Continue reading “Playlist: Louisiana”
