Okay, for about three years we have been planning an epic road trip in an RV for adventures throughout North America.   It is so hard to wait, as we want to just go now!   However, we still have a lot to do to get prepared, and that can be stressful.  In the interim, it has really helped us to listen to music. Moreover, this has been a very helpful, empowering process in that we found ourselves really listening to the lyrics, igniting our passion to make our dream a reality.   Before we go any further, we want to thank Robin from the YouTube Channel Creativity RV.  Her video was our inspiration to create this list, and it has helped our psyche tremendously.

We created our playlist with 60 songs from Amazon Prime Music, and we would like to share it with you.   For the most part, it consists of mostly songs that have a travel theme to it, but there are some that just sound great for road tripping.   If you have an Amazon Prime account, click the link below to pull up our songs.


If don’t have Amazon Music, you can certainly take the songs that you like to create your own playlist on whatever music media tool you prefer.  Our playlist is always a work in progress.  As a result, we add new ones, delete some and change the order.   Our list is as follows:
