Jamie’s Summer Camping Jams

Welcome back to the blog! Today we’re talking about something I think we can collectively agree is a big part of all of us – MUSIC!

I love making playlists for every mood and occasion, and I can spend hours looking (er, listening?), through new music. I’m typically the ‘Designated DJ’ of my crew. It’s pretty normal for me to hear, ‘What’s the name of this song?’ a few times when my phone is paired to the speaker. I’m going camping next week so I thought, what better time to share some of my favourite camping tunes with you?

My and Tristan’s first camping trip together, circa 2013

I actually made a Youtube Channel just to make a playlist for you guys, and you can find it here:

This is a mix of mostly 60’s and 70’s tunes, perfect for sitting around a campfire, relaxing at the beach, or floating down a channel (the Enderby channel here in B.C. is my favourite!). It runs about 3 hours, 15 minutes.

I hope you enjoy this list, I had fun making it. Now, I’ve gotta go pack for my trip! But first – where did I leave my speaker?
