Oh, boy, how do you get a house and yard like that? I know: hard work. Or was it Powerball?

Hey David, I had to load, haul and place every rock, stage built from telephone poles bought on craigslist, grass planted by seed, quonset building erected with a few friends, bowling alley relocated from former Elks Club building, Easter Island head was 100 hours labor a few winters ago. recent house addition took 1 1/2 years to complete.

no power ball, alot of craigslist and a little hard work over 4 years.


Time is more valuable than money.... so spend your time wisely.

and speaking of time
7 days to launch.....

Need a update on BEST speaker

Can anyone suggest a speaker to have on the river. I have been using a ecoxgear boombox the last couple of years that has been pretty sweet, it just seems to be outdated. This summer I went on a trip where there were a couple of different speakers that people brought along, and they all schooled my ecoxgear speaker. There speakers were smaller, louder, and the sound quality was amazing.
Just looking for some suggestions as to what has the best volume, battery life, sound quality.

I've been thinking about a JBL Charge 3 to hang from my Bimini. I'm curious to see what everyone else gat come up with.

I think "Ship of Fools" may be more apt. Personally, I really prefer folks leave the boom boxes at home. There's a good enough sound track already.

They make plenty of good water-proof headset stereos. Please don't subject other people to whatever you want to blare out in the Canyons, even if it's my favorite song.

Mrkyak, Kool engineering and house but I'm with AndyH. Nothing more rude and uncouth on the river than a boom box. I go to the river to appreciate the sights and sounds of the river corridor and for what it is worth, listen to myself think and ponder; not to listen to the sights and sounds of civilization. So please, if you feel the need, use headphones.

Frankly, I'm not always sure that I'm receptive to every night strumming around the campfire. For some reason, most strummers just assume that it is OK to strum without asking. Maybe if I could strum back at them I'd have a different attitude. Several times I've wanted to ask, "Hey, tonight can we just listen to the crackling of the campfire, the sounds of the river and the hoot of the owls.

dfresh, I'd advocate that you read this thread and see what others think of canned tunes on the rio. I like music, and I boat with people who also do...but not everyone does.

Louder is certainly not better.

Smaller, sound quality, and battery life are good criteria.

I've got to agree with Andy. There is nothing more intrusive than kicking it in the wilderness then hearing some damn boom box drowning out the sounds of the river. Having a good time shouldn't involve intruding on others. If your group is the only wild life you want to see, that's cool, but I'd rather see the bear, the cougar the deer and what other wildlife that lives along the river than listen to your boom box.
