Last weekend, Mr. Husband, my oldest daughter and I traveled 10 hours to visit my son in college. He's been there now for two months.
Ten hours is a very, very long time!
One the way there, we started out listening to the radio, then cd's. We only had a few cd's, meaning they did not sustain us through the entire trip! *deep sigh* Mr. Husband is not a big talker. Unless he has something to talk about. When driving, he's usually quiet, and in a zone. My daughter, literally slept all the way there. I was on my own!
I remembered my new car has XM radio. I had avoided using the XM, thinking I needed a paid subscription. Pulling out my handy owners manual, I learned we have is a free version. We listened to the music of our choosing in the middle of no where!
There are many stations that caught my interest Praise, Soul, and The Heat. I even found myself listening to Radio Disney. Mr. Husband found delight in the College Sports, ESPN, and comedy stations.
I do like a good road trip, and good music is essential for a successful one. Thanks to XM Radio, our 20 hour round trip was smooth, and relaxing.
The next road trip, adventure is a must!
