NeffTunes MixTape July 2008: Ode to the Road

I took a 2200 mile road trip this July, meandering up through the Midwest to visit good friends and family. That was about 32 hours of quality windshield time, so needless to say i listened to tons of tunes and thought about a lot of stuff. Like: Where have i been? Where am i going? Why is it so hot? and Maps are for suckers. Some thoughts were more existential than others. Guess i must have been looking for answers. I didn't find too many. Oh well, it was a blast anyway. i thought of a great list of road songs and i never got lost. So dear readers, here's my compilation of my favorite travelin' tunes for you to enjoy on your next journey on our nation's great highways and byways. Hope you enjoy.
