23 Nov

..slightly obsessed with headlamps. Ok, I bought another petzl headlamp to replace the broken one which I have had for years The light never let me down until I decided to stand on it so I felt obligated/motivated to get another one. This one is a TIKKA xp2 and it has many newer features. Where my old one had an on switch this one has 2 light levels, flashing light, built in diffuser, red light ( to keep night vision..perfect for meteor showers and star-gazing) and it will stay on for 160 hours off of 3 AAA batteries. sweet!

image and it also has a sweet LOUD whistle..A* likes that as she is always worried about coyotes…and coyotes hate whistles. Yes, it slices, it dices, it juliennes..Ronco should really think of purchasing the rights to this.

    you seem pretty obsessed bout he lights.. i trust you to have a good reason.. i only have flashlights, is the headgear really that useful??

    didn’t know coyotes hate whistles… do you blow it once in a while as a preventive measure or only when you see one??

    our cats are smart as can be, they have a 24-7 cat door and keep safe, still, i would like to make sure the coyotes stay away… i put out 30 standard solar leds and 5 led spot lights (bought 3 package deals @ct – gotta love ct ;-)

    btw – did you have fun in ottawa??

    cheers buddy!!

      Once you use a headlamp you will never go back to a flashlight..guaranteed! I should have said it was a joke about the coyotes hating whistles..that is just what I tell A*..hehe. A* saw a coyote once..about 1.5 years ago but we do see dracks over our driveay on occasion over our driveway..but it could be fox prints too..

    Nooooooo! Not more flashlights. Lee has been on a flash light kick lately. I know more then I ever need to know about them. Sigh.
