How I learned to make a giant Didgeridoo !

Or a lesson in how to drive yourself bonkers.

Over the weekend I drove a minivan load of stuff (furniture, artwork, etc) from Mom’s farm. And on the top of the minivan I strapped Moms e-bike. With nice wide ratchet straps. And in proper tradition tightened those suckers down.

And on hitting the highway I discovered that my nice tight straps became a giant tuned instrument. And the mostly hollow minivan body became the sounding board.

I plugged in my AirPod Pros, turned on the active noise canceling feature, and drove. The underlying vibration still got to me.

Oy.

The next day I wrapped some handy rope around the straps to dampen the noise, and had a more peaceful ride.

Lesson learned…

Alway put a twist in the strap to prevent vibration.

maybe you could have played a tune by varying your speed :-)
