Today’s post is guest-authored by Emily and Alex of the Ridge Runners.
Everyone has their own version of the perfect road trip, whether it’s cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway with the top down or kicking up gravel on a back road with a couple of your buddies. For some special individuals, it may just be piling into a van with 11 other Corpsmembers and heading out to the woods for 10 days.
Whatever your dream road trip looks like, no journey is complete without the perfect lineup of tunes. We wanted to know what songs would be on the ultimate playlist of our camping crew, so we started asking around.
