daydream road trippin'

i feel myself in a rut already and it hasn't even snowed yet.  so to bust out a little, even if just in my imagination, i am taking a road trip of the mind this week.  heavily flickr induced road trip.  who-what-where... the how is easy, it is a fantasy road trip, so time travel applies.  where would you go what would you see if you could just pack up and go?  perhaps a familiar favorite spot or a never before seen adventure?  your trip your rules.  want to come along?  share with me what your cool place(s) would be or who your cool travel buds might be or what you would bring or a playlist for your trip;  good travel always requires good tunes for me. perhaps you live in, or have been to a spot i pick, what would YOU do there that i missed?  ready?
today i am packing up my red suitcase, getting out the maps, gassing up the jeep, TOP DOWN, and this is cranking from the stereo Red Hot Chilli Peppers' "Road Trippin" (listen)
"Road trippin' with my two favorite allies
Fully loaded we got snacks and supplies
It's time to leave this town
It's time to steal away
Let's go get lost
Anywhere in the USA

Let's go get lost
Let's go get lost

Blue you sit so pretty
West of the one
Sparkles light with yellow icing
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun

These smiling eyes are just a mirror for

So much as come before those battles lost and won
This life is shining more forever in the sun
Now let us check our heads
And let us check the surf
Staying high and dry's more trouble than it's worth
In the sun

These smiling eyes are just a mirror for

In Big Sur we take some time to linger on
We three hunky dory's got our snakefinger on
Now let us drink the stars
It's time to steal away
Let's go get lost
Right here in the USA

Let's go get lost
Let's go get lost..."

umm yeah i'd road trip with Anthony Kiedis, John Frusciante and Flea anyday!

I live on the peninsula and so a road trip to anywhere is a good road trip. I just never seem to make the time for one. Homer, Seward, Cooper Landing, all worthy places. I should do one soon.

Hmmm...... Nova Scotia & Labrador, listening to KT Tunstall.

Or walking through the dunes - off season at Cape Cod, listening to Carly Simon or Vivaldi...
