I’ve just returned from my first trip in a few years to Boston. While in Boston we happened upon what is purportedly the oldest tavern in America. I don’t know if it is the oldest for sure but the pub has been opened since 1794. I enjoyed myself a delicious half and half and soaked in the surroundings. I had a nice time on the trip but it’s good to be back home.
The drive to Boston takes about five hours so there is plenty of time to fill up with music. When driving I can get into a rhythm and somewhat free my mind to where it isn’t necessary to pay extra close attention to the road to know what I am doing. In an effort to combat boredom I let my mind wander onto different topics to keep myself entertained or at least engaged in thought. I want to listen to music that will recall some sort of memory that will occupy some time where I don’t dwell on the length of the trip.
Anyone driving to New England has spent a fair amount of time on the Mass Pike. I don’t know of any other song devoted to the turnpike so here you go.
