What instruments do you bring? Piano, upright base, harp, harmonica?

I have no talent, but do play a mean mp3 player. ;-)

Music is like magic

We have always had our cell phones that contain about 90% of our music collection. However, since we've added a television to our Bigfoot and an external speaker to provide better sound to the television, we can also hook the external speaker to either phone and pump out the JAMs.

But, we also intend to bring our Ukulele's this camping season so we can produce our own party tunes.

Funny story about camper music includes the discovery that I made while installing some extra cabinets inside of our old Scamp (now sold). I was working, very quietly, and decided to put my music on my phone for some entertainment so I fired it up and then place the phone inside the upper cabinets. The sound bounced around inside the cabinet and produced a much deeper tone instead of the AM-radio-like tinny noise. From that point on, when we wanted music, we opened the upper cabinet doors and put the phone inside while playing tunes. hahaha

We seldom listen to music when traveling or camping.
We do occasionally listen to NPR in order to get the news.
We do have a cell phone but only for making calls

XM radio. We transfer the radio faceplate from the tow vehicle to a docking station in the trailer, and use a JBL bluetooth speaker which we use inside the trailer and are able to move it to the CLAM shelter.

I've been tempted to bring my old beater cello at times but it takes too much space.

I'm the guy that likes to listen to nature when camping, we seem to be a dying breed.

In the privacy of your own trailer, sure, go for it.

AMEN brother,...the best music is the wind and the birds singing in the trees along with the crickets and bugs in the bushes...these are some of top reasons I go camping................

p.s. ...actually, I don't mind a little live(acoustic) music around a campfire either...........mj

We have a little radio we bring to catch the news sometimes inside our trailer...

When we were redoing Peanut, we thought it would be fun to bring some simple instruments with us and made a little carry case for a metal xylophone, a wooden xylophone, a harmonica, and a recorder...but after horsing around with them at home decided we preferred to listen to the birds, the wind, and the waters, if any...and so would everyone else.

You can all thank us when we cross paths.

BEST
Kai

I will be redundant. Music is so pleasing. I listen to a nonprofit FM station in Salt Lake City. I listen to the music on this station they play new wave, then they play i/2 Hr of the Almund Brothers (sic ) band same DJ. country, jazz, Blue Grass, Rock and Roll ,another series called " Fret and fiddle " they play it all. I will listen for hrs. When I head out into the back country ( or hook up ) and enjoying the peace and quite chatting with others, drink in hand, perhaps moon in the sky. someone pulls into a site at a hookup camp ground or out in a back country site, ( paying a fee ) turns on a generator, will run it beyond the allowed time for using said device. What a piss off. It is quite. someone cranks up their stereo, inside speakers or outside speakers. One wants to tell them they are stupid F...ers, hold it down, ( it could be music I enjoy.) I don't say anything and lower myself to their level, I just sit and wish I were with people who will respect other campers
Think about a teen that comes up beside you at a stop light and their stereo rattles your car. Rattle your mind ? Rude campers are the same !

Later Kenny
