John always chooses the perfect road trip theme song. Donna anxiously awaits pulling out of the driveway and hearing the song for the first time. She always brainstorms possible songs that John may pick, but she has never been successful. The song is played each morning as we pull out of the hotel parking lot and as we enter each new state. Yes, we do look for the dotted line on our GPS indicating we are approaching a new state and eagerly put the CD in the player waiting until that magic moment when we cross the state line.
