Just cause everyone is trashing on the guy who said, essentially, "please don't be a jackass" ....

I love tunes, and always take them. Earbuds in the tent, or hiking, or on groover patrol. all good.

But I've also been on several trips where other parties were downright rude with their tunes. Rolled in to camp opposite us at dusk, and cranked Eminem on the boombox till midnight. Another trip, someone brought an amp for midnight safety fueled jam session. for the love of god ....

DONT BE THAT GUY. All they had to do was camp somewhere without neighbors, and I got nuthin' bad to say. But don't impact my trip like that please. I'm trying to listen to the birds and the wind.

Pretty sweet rig -- nice work!

JW Powell would have given "that guy" a one-armed beating.

Gaurontied I'm not that guy. My idea was to share ways and
Means of taking pride in creating your own river proof sound
System.

Mrkayak, nice work! Here is my Rioradio. I was thinking of some kind of mass production but Eco beat me to it. It went down the grand with me in 2011. I charge the 10ah sla battery with a 13 watt solar panel while on the river. it gave us music for dinner and will rock the beach for 6-8 hours. A 20ah battery would be better but wouldn't fit in the box. I am not an mp3 type so I installed Serious satellite radio that is remotely controlled through the view window. I have submerged it, the waterproof speakers did fine. I am currently working on a solar cocktail ice maker. By the way if i'm that guy that is ruining your outdoor experience tell me, most have said its awesome!

Nice set up Jonas. After you invent the ice maker.......how about a retractable stripper pole? Bet that thing would sound awsome in stone river!!

mrkyak....you mentioned using an inverter to charge things in camp. You'll save on battery power if you can charge them direct from the battery using car chargers. Just a thought.

Hmm retractable eh, alright done you find the talent. The reception was 100% we had a rule of no news channels though. I charged a couple iPods and cameras for others during layover days. The solar panel had to be hooked up because if the voltage drops below 11.5 volts the inverter shuts down another reason for a bigger battery. If the radio was left on and the battery drained, it would take a couple days of solar charging to fully charge.

Thanks carverdan I was wondering if the inverter used power to do its thing. I'll go strictly 12v auto chargers.

As a backup I got a K Tore hand crank generator, anybody have experience with these?
