Earlier this month Cold Splinters shared Indian Summer, a transitional/seasonal mix I put together for their ongoing Trail Mix series. As I’ve noted here in the past, if you like to get outside, Cold Splinters, helmed by Jeff Thrope, is both an essential and inspiring read. Thrope’s also one of the few people who truly appreciates the fact I own volumes 1-6 of the Foxfire books. And if you caught that reference, you may be from Georgia.

40 minutes as the summer burns off into fall. Play it at night with the windows down….
