Road Trip Day

"🎶 I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
'Cross the deserts bare, man
I've breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel, I've had my share, man
I've been everywhere."

~ I've Been Everywhere, Geoff Mack, 1959

If you're a kilted traveler who "gets your kicks on Route 66" or simply thrills to the scenery on the route from Edinburgh/Glasgow to Glencoe, you will appreciate the lure of the open road as embodied in this tartan's colourways: Black represents asphalt and tarmac; the yellow stripes represent double yellow lines, likewise the red ones; while the white lines represent the lines in the center of the road and the green, the verges, lay-bys and turnouts. For those of us with wanderlust but unable to hit the open road today, there's an impressive catalog of "road songs" dedicated to highways, avenues, boulevards and famous routes. The song "I've Been Everywhere" popularized by Johnny Cash and others was originally written by Australian Geoff Mack and now has country-specific versions for the US/Canada, Western Australia, New Zealand, Texas and others, all of which have a tongue-twisting list of regional towns and cities in the famous and fun middle verses. The UK and Ireland version includes four verses (!) including the following one. If you know the tune, give it a try. 🖤 🤍 💛 ❤️ 💚 🚦 🛣️

"🎶 I've been to Farnborough, Edinburgh, Peterborough, Felixstowe,
Middlesbrough, Loughborough, Scarborough, Walthamstow,
Blackburn, Lisburn, Bannockburn, Derry,
Wicklow, Glasgow, Hounslow, Tipperary,
Hempstead, Wanstead, Banstead, Woodstock,
Bass Rock, Bell Rock, Tilbury Dockwith ...
I've been everywhere!"
