There are some things that don’t come out of the bag for the world! The Lantern is one of them, even if your intent is to leave at 6 A.M. and return at noon. Why? It’s very simple: we never know what nature has in store for us, although we can predict a lot of things and, most importantly, plan carefully all we want to do, learn and enjoy. Planning is one thing, reality is another, and within this planning, extreme care with your safety and well-being must come first. Thus, anorak, water, snack and not leaving the Lantern bag for almost anything of this world. Well, in the case of the flashlight, she should get out of the car, not that strategic place in the House (or the city).
The camping market offers us a few options of lanterns which, of course, fit their needs. But first, check out the following tips to not have nasty surprises in moments that you really don’t need them!
