I wasn’t quite sure how to introduce anyone who happens to stumble onto this road-trip travel-blog to my mindset for a trip like this.  Maybe it will just unfold gradually in layers on its own.  But, it did occur to me that introducing you to a sampling of the Road-Trip Music Set-List that will be my constant companion on these highways and back-roads, might help.  So, here are a handful of tunes…mostly on the mellower side…just to get you started (Warning: Do not attempt to listen to them all at once.  Side-effects may include…abruptly leaving work…packing a suitcase…and suddenly heading out on your own adventure without explanation):
