Add Tunes to the Picnic
We take tunes everywhere these days. Tunes wake us up and we get tunes in the shower, tunes on the bus or in the car, tunes at the desk, and tunes at the gym. Technology enables us to take our favorite music wherever we choose. And that applies to more than music. Include podcasts, streaming radio, live sporting events and other audio too. This of course means we need to become more creative with those places where sound was formerly not found.
Taking a hike in nature used to be a peaceful thing but does not have to be anymore. Likewise, stopping off to have a picnic now does not require silence or a huge boom box. Get a Speaker Blanket, £34.99 at spinninghat.com. Find your favorite grassy spot and unfurl the blanket. The center of one end contains two speakers a pocket for your music device and a 3.5mm headphone jack. After putting in two AA batteries just plug your device in, sit back and enjoy. No need to bring a separate speaker unit. When done, simply fold up the blanket under the vinyl speaker/pocket section. Technically, spinninghat.com is out of stock but they will email you when available. Hopefully in time for your first picnic of the year.
