The Camping Mixtape is back! Last time (well really the only other time) I posted a Camping Mixtape was way back in February 2015, right before out 18 month hiatus. I really did have good intentions of posting a new playlist each month for your camping and listening enjoyment, but well, you know what they say about good intentions. Regardless, the Camping Mixtape is back with a timely Christmas playlist for you.
All of the songs listed below are some of our favorites for this time of year. Some are a little more obscure (in fact some may be some may be completely unavailable today – I probably downloaded them from Napster back in the day). Some may not be family friendly, but should make you laugh (at least a little). But, all should be enjoyed in the company of good people preferably around a warm campfire with your warm seasonal drink of choice.
