    So everyones gotta jam...what is it? I cant really go anywhere with out something playing. My all time favorite is Bluegrass music and folk music. But I grew up with a Dad that was big into 70s rock and alot of blues a Mother that was a 60s hippie so I listen to everything but the folksy bluegrass goes along ways.


    Lets hear it

    We leave the rat race of people & the drama they cause to travel deep in the back country to disperse camp so we can have peace & enjoy mother nature & GODs creation.

    I've gotta agree. I may listen to some tunes on the highway, but when I get onto gravel/dirt, I usually prefer the sound of the wind. And, when I'm actually in camp, I never listen to music.

    I love music, I book concerts for a living, but it's not really part of my outdoor experience.

    ...but speaking of bluegrass, check out Billy Strings:

    I listen to Spanish rap, unfortunately every time some one is in the 100yards proximity I get asked to turn it down.

    I guess I am one way out there in my music choices. Lately I have Wardruna, Two steps from Helen groups along those lines.

    I'll listen to music on the drive, but usually when I stop for camp and set up, I enjoy the quiet and the sounds of nature. Was raise with the mentality that, the quiet refreshes and rejuvenates the mind, as my dad like to put it. I tend to like to sit in camp and read or shit the shit around the campfire. I always get irritated when I am out camping and there's people in camp , if I am in the camp ground, blaring music. In my opinion, defeats the purpose of being outdoors.

    I usually only play music while setting up camp or cooking - just something to keep me moving. I don't go to the woods to completely override nature's soundtrack or force my odd tunes on my friends. I have a Spotify playlist of almost 700 songs I just keep dumping tracks into. It has some of everything in it - swing, punk, rap, country, EDM, bluegrass, instrumentals, reggae, rock from the 50s to today, etc. If you have an unhealthy curiosity regarding my musical taste (or lack thereof):



    If you do look through it, let me know what you think. :tearsofjoy:

    As others have posted, when driving , its music time. I listen to a variety of types,....no rap, limited country. But when i reach camp, i usually shut it off for the duration. I think it depends on the group you are with, which determines if music is played.

    My friends all bring speakers. They know i dont dig the musuc in the bush. Once its all dark and dinner is done, the music gets turned off. Everyone gets thier time as dj. Then i get to turn it off.

    Classic rock, arena rock, rock, and country when camping. We keep it low at night out of respect for others and to hear what might be walking by.

    I play music but I set the volume by walking my site perimeter to see if I can hear it. If I can I turn it down.

    That is a very good system. If more thought like you it would lead to a pleasant getaway experience.

    I don't always get it right, but I try to be considerate of others.
