Road Trippin’

Aren’t road trips great?

Driving off to parts unknown for a big adventure with a bunch of friends.

Anything could happen!

Whether just a couple of days, a few weeks, or longer; it’s almost like being in a Bob Dylan song, a Jack Kerouac book, or a Tom Green movie.

A road trip in any kind of vehicle is great; but for me, travelling in a van just adds another dimension to the greatness of a road trip.

Maybe it’s the nostalgia factor: all those hippies driving around having free love all over the place, blowing their minds at never ending giant outdoor rock festivals, and getting to be in that old Woodstock movie.

I guess hippies used vans for different reasons: they held a lot of people, were relatively cheap, and had a built in pad to crash in. 

Those hippies were a pretty practical bunch, but not very nostalgic.

 

note: should this van be called “Morrison“?

double note: Wavy Gravy is 72 years old.
