Road-Trip Tunes! (A Girl Camper's Playlist)

Picture it: You're hooked up, fueled up, and ready to hit the open road for some Girl Camping.

Now, you need some road-trip tunes!

A great road-trip tune cranks up you up. It opens with a riff you recognize. It makes your head bob to the beat. And makes the trip itself fly by!

Here's a playlist guaranteed to do all the above--and we've even added Youtube links for your instant enjoyment.

* On the Road Again, Willie Nelson.

* Real Real Gone, Van Morrison.

* Born to Be Wild, Steppenwolf.

* Rocking Down the Highway, Doobie Brothers.

* Freeway of Love, Aretha Franklin.

* I've Been Everywhere, Johnny Cash.

* Bad to the Bone, George Thorogood.

* Little Red Corvette, Prince.

* I Drove All Night, Roy Orbison.

* The Road to Hell, Chris Rea.

* Running on Empty, Jackson Browne.

Naturally, we'll gladly add your own contributions to the Girl Camping Road-Trip Playlist. What've you got for us? Let's rock it!
