Re: What would loopers do without power?

Well, if it came to that, I doubt I'd be thinking about my looping rig. :)  But, there's always this:
A friend of my mom lives so far out in WV that he had to go solar or pay about $20,000 to have power run to his house.  He runs his whole house and recording studio off his solar system. 
What would I do?  Acoustic guitar.  No looping or power.  :)

So, let's say hypothetically a major catastrophe occurred in the next 2-3 decades, and power became non-existent (unlikely) or highly scarce. For example, suppose we all had to rely on solar panels and wind power, and powering an amp and looper was a complete luxury and out of the question.

What would you do?
Second question: Has anyone created a solar powered system?  Just to make it simple, what would it take, and how much would it cost to make a solar powered system right now that would power my Roland Microcube and RC-2?  I think it would be fun to create such a system.
Or, does anyone have one of those stationary bicycles that is also a generator? Can you pedal fast enough to power these two electronic items? Imagine packing your bike around to play a gig. :)
