After 38 continuous hours of traveling through America’s south, Andrew Evans

has arrived in Houston and is taking a well-deserved break for the day

(and taking the opportunity to catch up with his folks). Throughout the

trip so far, he’s been sending off his colorful and poetic missives on Twitter @Bus2Antarctica and has already amassed hundreds of followers and fans (one actually went and met him

at the bus station in Baton Rouge). He’s talked with soldiers and dreamers, party kids and parents, and is giving us all an incredible look at American life. And he’s told me that the bus trip has been made even better in large part to the song

suggestions from our readers. So since many of you asked, now, without

further ado, we present the Bus2Antarctica Ultimate Playlist.

Who knew

there were so many songs titled “Antarctica?”

    So happy to see such great songs on the list. Thanks for creating the iMix on iTunes, too so I can sample them :)

    I love the idea of readers helping to create the ideal road tripping playlist. I’ve enjoyed following Andrew’s journey so far via Twitter. He’s painted a really great picture of his bus ride, and I feel like I’m there with him, chatting with his seatmates and watching the world out the window.
