As noted by hip-hop band Atmosphere, road trips “become head trips.” It’s as if you’re in your own movie, the constant forward motion lending a cinematic effect, a built-in narrative paced by whatever plays through the speakers and the constantly changing scenes, the dips and rises of terrain and towns and freeway exits, the tunnel of road that becomes a screen for your imagination.
What’s interesting is how looking back on these trips, events tend to arrange themselves around certain moments. And these moments are almost always the same archetypes.
