Flashlights on Vacation
« on: July 24, 2005, 10:50:07 PM »
OK, we can think of eight gazillion similar threads (flashlights in the john, flashlights on the golf course, flashlight at a campout, etc. etc, etc), but I just had to throw this one out there, since I AM on vacation and since I DID bring along some lights. Here's what I brought:

1. Brass LC (of course, goes without saying)
2. McLux III-PD bare AL U-bin
3. Peak Brass AA Kilimanjaro (5 LED head)
4. CMG Ultra Infinity U.S. Gov't version

The last two lights (3 & 4) are for night reading lights after all "night-time activities" :naughty: :icon_cheers: have wound down, so to speak. Two kids in the other room, so don't get excited. :sleepy3:

Tell what you'd bring with you if you were on vacation.

I went on a cruise recently.  I brought a lot of lights but here are the ones I ended up using.

Inova X1 - So I didn't bother anyone sleeping in the cabin
Mag85 - for the wall of light effect
Inova X0 - general ighting and uses normal 123s
LC - normal carry but I only had 3 R123s.  I still only uses 2 of them on a week

My wife carries an Arc LS modded with a RB Lux3.  She likes the color

We went camping last weekend.  I'll just list the lights I used, not the ones I brought:

Lionheart: go to light, always on the belt
SF C3: to set up tent in dark by
BD moonlight: when two hands needed
SF E2e/KL1/McE2s: wife's light
battery operated lightstick: tent light

I like camping just to use my lights!

I usually take along a Streamlight 4AA 7LED for the nightstand, my usual Arc AAA for the keychain and either a Lion Cub or LionHeart for the EDC.  As a backup I usually add a Pelican M6 LED in there along with a bunch of extra batts.

Freak!  Why does anyone need more than one flashlight?  Oh yeah, to fill up your purse. :D
