I know I already covered lanterns and lighting up the campsite with both classic and new tech… but I also want to talk about something else. I have this very cool flashlight that I’ve used around the house for about a year or so now… it’s a unique little guy that quickly became my go-to light when working on pretty much any honey-do. Very dependable… I can dim the brightness… bendable tripod legs for standing up or gripping onto almost anything I need… and magnets build into the feet for attaching to almost any work surface (I imagine this light being a must-have for any mechanic!). I am talking about the GorillaTorch ($30).
I took this little gem along on my recent camping trip as a last-minute ad-on, and its true versatility shone brighter than ever before (pun intended). I was either attaching it to things with its wrap-around legs (Tent posts, chairs, tree branches, etc) or I was using its magnetic feet to stick it on when needed (cars, pop-up posts, etc)… all for the super convenience of not having to hold a flashlight at all! And in the middle-of-the-night when a trip to the little boys room was necessary… I simply turned it on with the very dim setting, so I didn’t interrupt anyone’s sleep. my last-minute decision was a blessing… and the GorillaTorch has now become a must have part of my camping arsenal!
