The members of McCamish’s family can expound upon their own travel tales, a few of which include listening to strictly Bee Gees music while being held captive during a cross-country trip.
“My husband describes me as ‘obsessed,’” McCamish said. “I fell in love with the Bee Gees after their rise in popularity during the disco era. I started buying their CDs, then went on eBay and bought their lunchboxes, an Andy Gibb doll, puzzles, 45 records — enough to fill a room dedicated to the Bee Gees. I’m sure I paid entirely too much money for some of this stuff.
“But my daughter, Brianne, will relate the story of driving home from California when the only music in the car came from Bee Gees CDs. My husband was about to kill me, and she did nothing but roll her eyes.
“But today, I get a kick out of the fact that Brianne admits that she kind of likes to hear Bee Gees songs because the music reminds her of that trip.
“Now, my husband? That’s another story.”
