There is a thing that Betty and I love to do on those sultry, hot, breathless, Summer nights when not a leaf is moving on the lakeside, and it is impossible to sleep. We cruise slowly out on the lake with the stereo playing those old rock tunes that we like so, playing softly. Our dive boat that we had for twelve years or so is long gone and we now have a smaller fishing boat. So, we now operate a little differently.
Our dive boat had lots of cool electronics on it for navigation that our fishing boat doesn’t have. This Coleman lantern provides a constant visual fix on the campsite’s location, backed up with a low powered solar light. Not nearly as high powered, as the old boat, the sound system is pretty good. Here is a look at the bluetooth connected speakers.
The cell phone connects wirelessly to the speakers and also picks up SiriusXM radio for the oldies sound.
As we quietly slip across the surface of Lake Ouachita with no light except the boat’s navigational lights, our night vision is ever so good and we invariably begin to talk about the stars above in the sky. That’s when the cell phone’s star map app comes in handy.
Our four cycle engine is so quiet that we can hear conversations around campfires on the shore, as the sound travels across the water.
Late night cruising, it’s pretty nice. Boondocking on Lake Ouachita, in Arkansas.
