Let There Be Light!

December 1, 2011 by · 1 Comment 


Head lamps. Flashlights. Lanterns. Campfires. What is your favorite way to light up a dark night when you are out in the great outdoors? Do you have a favorite flashlight that you depend on?

We have used all of these items and our preference for them really depends on the situation. Sitting around a campfire on a summer’s night is great fun. When the kids start dashing around the campground or the park after dark, they definitely need a good flashlight in hand.  For tent camping, a lantern is essential. And, head lamps are critically important in remote areas as well. 

When I was shopping with my teenage daughter last week, I stopped by REI to see what was new. I didn’t spend a lot of time there, but I did peruse the flashlight and head lamp section. I thought the Photon Micro Light II  looked very good and well priced.  This personal safety flashlight has an ultra bright LED light that is visible over one mile. And, the light is built to survive serious use! I think this would be a great little gift for the guys in my family! And, best of all,  it can be attached to your key chain!

    If you are looking for a good, inexpensive light that lasts a long time check out the 9 led flashlight from Harbour Freight Tools. They are inexpensive or free with coupon, most of the time.
    I keep one on each vehicle and several in the camper.
