      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

That's a good question; depends on what you're looking for. Something to get you amped for a climb, or something mellow for blending in with the scenery?

 

I'd put Neil Young forth for just about any road trip.

Reggae Roulette:

Get a rotation of about five Bob Marley songs, and just play them on sample for that drive through the San Joaquin Valley. Keep a loaded pistol in the console between the driver and the passenger. See who shoots himself first.

The roulette idea sounds fun. I like car games. :moondance:

 

I used to roadtrip with an Australian guy whose entire selection of music consisted of Midnight Oil's tapes and cd's, including a bunch of screechy bootlegged recordings from their early days playing in pubs around Australia. It was brutal.

 

He's lucky there wasn't a gun in the car; I'd have shot HIM.

with so much good music out there its hard to narrow it down... I tend to just listen to what ever I am in the mood for or stoked on at the moment...

 

a few staples for me though:

 

motorcycle diaries movie soundtrack

gorecki's 3rd

cash live @ san quentin (the complete recording)

mos def black on both sides

blackalicious nia

 

long hauls are also a great time to catch up on your "reading"... books on CD/mp3 are a great idea

 

And if your ghetto sled doesnt have a plasma yet :mistat: you can always do the ac adaptar in the cig lighter + a lap top... nothing like memorizing the moves to cryo by watching higher ground over and over on the drive up :laf:

The soundtrack to my summer road trip was the Avett Brothers.
