Sorry, no closeups and your link is correct for the mats I use. I do not link the mats together because I'm lazy.Do you have a close up? Do the mats interlock to hold it together?
Is this them?
I would love to use solar but anyone who suggests so has never been in the South.
The tenter next to me gave me a concert of country music for an hour and kept staring at me.
I accidently found out that the mats deflect generator noise. One day I leaned the mats up against the genny because they were wet from using them in our shower tent. That is when I noticed the noise reduction. Since then, I always lean them against the genny for noise reduction.
I have NEVER had a complaint about my genny, but I have had many ask me about it because they like the idea of portable power. I also rarely camp in campgrounds.
I also have shared my genny with campers (strangers) that have needed a power supply to either pump up their air mattresses or recharge a phone or two. They have always been grateful.
I use a Powerhorse 2000W Inverter genny I purchased from Northern Tool. It has similar decibel levels as a Honda. I need the genny to recharge batteries for the DW and my CPAP's. Solar does not work for me as would be only one cloudy day away from heathy sleep.
The way I see it, EVERYONE has a right to camp if they chose to. Without a running CPAP, that is VERY difficult for us. I've camped all of my life and sleep issues will not keep me from that if I have a way to combat it. Neither will the self-righteous that don't care to understand the need for some to run a genny. Everyone has their own camping style and this is mine.
As far as the singing camping cowboy, I certainly would not worry about it. I don't think they would fair well in a to dual with his guitar against a generator. He will run out of gas first.
