Cool Silly Driving Quirks (and the best Album ever.)

When ever I drive in mountains I have to listen to Dark Side of The Moon, I just pop it in 8 track player! Did I say 8 track.

I remember jamming a matchbook between the 8-track cartridge and the door opening so the sound wouldn't "warble". And extended songs would change tracks right in the middle of the song. CHA CHUNK!
Don't miss that technology.....
Wait a minute.....what's a "matchbook"?

I don't want to be any where near it when it is being driven by an 8 track owner!

I got tired of my DW being able to use the bathroom while I was driving, so I devised a bungee cord system that holds the wheel straight and I put the cruise control on and take care of business. NOT. Wish I could.

This is kinda quirky.. I'm not much of a country music fan but when ever we are camping I find myself listening to either 70's or country music. I guess because it reminds me of the wonderful childhood I had.
Parents with about 6 other couples that had kids our age always planned an annual canoe trip. So about a dozen adults and 35 kids and lots of pop for us and beer for the adults, they played volleyball all day. The moms all made custom hats made out of yarn and beer cans. Country music or something similar like Eagles always playing. I'm not a smoker and typically dont like the smell but even today the smell of spilled beer, campfire smoke mixed with cigerette smoke and a musty tent are just like country music to me. ha ha
After reading this I'm surprised I like camping so much. Sounds horrible.
