Aight so I’m heading up to Canada for my sister’s wedding about a week from now and it’s a 12 hour drive each way so I’m staring down the barrel of 24 hours of being cooped up in my car. I’m gonna need some stuff to listen to during that time. Normally I just make long playlists myself and listen to that, but lately, I’ve found that endlessly listening to music is not really all that enjoyable and therefore I really haven’t been finding anything new to listen to. It’s not like I can just listen to the same stuff over and over again. Damn is a good album, but I need a little more. Also driving for really long periods of time listening to just music makes the journey feel way longer and that makes this sorta drive borderline unbearable.
So I need some other stuff to listen to, and I’d like to implore anyone reading this to make recommendations. I’m mainly looking for podcasts or other spoken word stuff, but I’ll still be mixing in some music so if you have something that you just really feel the need to recommend I’ll look into it as well. Also if you have weird little things to occupy your time like driving games or something like that I’d be really appreciative.
Oh, also car snacks, healthy ones. Normally I just eat garbage, but I’m trying to eat healthier so something I won’t feel guilty about.
I’d also ask if there’s anything I should check out on my drive, but I’ve done the drive between Provo and Magrath a bunch of times, there really isn’t anything worth stopping for. Maybe there’s some stuff in Salt Lake City, but that’s less than an hour away from me now, I can just go see whatever it is some other time. Not really something you’d make a stop on a road trip.
This feels a bit odd like I just want other people to basically plan my whole road trip for me and I’m just being lazy. I’m the one that’s actually doing the 12 hours of driving though, and it’s not like anyone has to recommend anything. Maybe I’m just overthinking this. Probably. Later.
