Good company, gas in the tank, and good tunes are what make a summer road trip all that it is. Since we love traveling the back roads of America, here’s a playlist to share with your fellow roadies.

Play loud and play often!


Our soft full canvas style hat will be the go-to accessory for any Picker

    How about “Unknown Legend” by Neil Young from the Harvest Moon? Dig those lyrics – “Across the desert, she rides a Harley Davidson. Her long blonde hair blowing in the breeze…..” Love the show – I’m seeing so much the the ‘real America’

    Been watching your program for years, really enjoy it. Would like to have a T-shirt, but being from Des Moines i’d greatly appreciate one that say Antique Archaeology, LeClaire Iowa. Thank you.

    Here’s the only comment I can make I love the show I like all your articles the only thing I don’t like I went out to the LeClaire Iowa store and the t-shirts are made in China what’s up with that? I know you guys are the All-American show at cetera so can’t we find the t-shirts made in America it was 30 bucks for a Chinese t-shirt thank you

    Great mix, The only thing I would add would be Borm On The Bayou by CCR. Not necessarily a travel song but gives you the giddy up and go to keep knocking down those two lane miles to the next search for rusty gold….
