8 Travel-Related Jams for the Weekend

I’ve been inadvertently jamming to a few travel-related songs this week. Clearly it’s a sign to pack my bags and hit the long, dusty road. A wise traveler can’t go on ignoring such obvious signs. The universe works in mysterious ways, as you are well aware.

Thing is, most of these songs aren’t necessarily about traveling. They just mention mileage, or Greyhound buses, or being a long way from home, or what have you. I said wise traveler, which we all know I am not.

Still, it’s a sign, damn it!

I do have one travel-related question for you. Which headphones do you use when you’re on the road? Just curious. Me? Sony Noise Canceling MDR-NC7. They’re foldable. And they come with a sweet pouch.

Anyway, enjoy the tunes. Happy Friday. And maybe even Happy Travels.

“Five Thousand Miles,” Zigitros

“Lonesome, On’ry, and Mean,” Waylon Jennings

“Long Way Home,” Old Friend Band

“Jamaica,” Theme Park

“Venice,” The Lighthouse and The Whaler

“East,” Last Japan

“Shades of Funk,” Kill Paris

And finally…

“San Pedro,” Mogwai



  1. I always love hearing new music. Like the outdoors, it’s good for the soul. I love Eddie Vedder’s Rise. It always makes me want to get out there. Thank you for your post!

  2. Jam on, Eric! You get me pumped up to go on an adventure when I visit! I always pack up my old radio and take it with me. It has two rechargeable batteries and that’s usually good enough for me.

  3. Hey Eric! Do you have any posts on backcountry camping food (dehydrated meals that you make yourself)? Looking for some good recipes 🙂 Suggestions? Thanks!!

    1. Hey Eric! Thanks for this. No need to go to the trouble of digging up the recipes, we’re basically at crunch time and will prob be finalizing the menu tonight. Will check out your post later for sure! 🙂
