12 Badass Road Trip Songs!

Every thing is black or white. Either you're the type of person who properly tanks up as soon as you see the fuel indicator bend backwards or you're the type of person who waits till you've driven enough in the red zone.

& then there is a time when in spite of being in the first category, you slip into the second. It just happens. And wonderfully it happened to me when we were well out of town, with no fuel pump in sight, with three little children in the backseat!! 

And since it happened to me the first time, I didn't know that the DTE (Distance to Empty) number suddenly jumps from 55kms to 0.  

Alarm bells in my head, loud & clanging: Whoa... I thought we had 55 km... so was that incorrect? Is it fucking ZERO? Are you kidding me? What are we supposed to do in this country if we run out of fuel on a highway? What do usually kids do on the roadside in the 35 degrees heat??

This story had a happy ending (phew!) and a big learning: running on empty is not the end of the world.
