Long Hot Summer in an Old Soviet Car

Dirty Dishes

In the late 80's when I was about 6 I lived in the U.S.S.R. Each summer my family would take a road trip in our old Soviet family-sedan. We would spend the summer driving along these seemingly endless roads, camping all across the former republics of the Soviet Union.

The spaces between anything remotely resembling populated areas were at times easily 2-3 days drive, the roads were one lane in each direction and largely empty with the exception of the occasional car or truck. The music in this mix resonates almost exactly with the feeling I had on those long hot summers staring out of the window and seeing nothing but forests, fields, rivers and lakes for miles driving on seemingly endless and mostly empty roads.

The Blurb about this really brought it home for me in terms of extra enjoyability.

@Tim, Awesome glad you dig it, g'luck in summer classes, I'm in the same gradschool summer class boat. No fun, only work for ex soviet brainiacs. The good work of the summermix team keeps me entertained and going through the boredom
