Do you ever have a month or week where not only your life is stressful and generally awful, but so are your friends lives?
Well, that’s been me and my friends and loved ones for the past month. Yay.
On top of all of that, three of us had summer birthdays and no money to celebrate. So we pooled our ideas (and scarce money) and decided to hit up Mammoth Caves next weekend.
Not only that, but we’re staying at a kitschy Route 66-esque hotel: Wigwam Village #2.
Back in the 1930s, Frank Redford created the Wigwam Inns, and originally, there were seven scattered across the US. Now there’s three left.
Thus, the Wigwam Buddies playlist was born.
Drawing inspiration from folksy and upbeat songs, the playlist is a mix of girl power and current alt rock. AKA: It’s perfect for a drive through Kentucky during September.
All of this also springs from my eternal obsession with fall, and the fact that I got a whiff of that autumn air recently.
Look out world, we’re coming for the wigwam and the caves, and we’re not taking any prisoners.
