You know what makes a flashlight TRULY useless?

When it can't even turn on!

Dead batteries (or low batteries) mean you don't get the light you need when you need it. Maybe the power went out, maybe it's an emergency situation, or maybe you're just trying to find that 20 dollar bill you dropped in the back seat... it doesn't matter.

When you grab the flashlight, it has to work! NOW!

I can't tell you how many times I've been out on the road, or out in the wilderness, when I've gone for a flashlight only to realize that it's completely dead!

If I'm LUCKY, I might have some extra batteries lying around. But in almost every case, it means I don't have a flashlight until I get home or get to the store.

So you know what I did? I went out and found a flashlight that I could actually count on. Because it's not powered by batteries that you can't track, and I don't have to stick it in a recharger to keep it ready to go.

See, with the big solar panels on the front side, this thing collects and collects then stores that energy until YOU need some extra light. And with the power of the Sun in this thing, you shouldn't be surprised to see that it's blasting out a TON of brightness from the 3 insanely powerful LED bulbs.

And with the high-efficiency monocrystalline solar panel, it builds solar power at a 1:1 ratio! Leave it out for 8 hours, you get 8 hours of light!

That's amazing!

But get this...

So if you need light in a pinch, you can just grab this thing and give it a few flicks of the wrist! In just ONE minute of cranking, you can get an entire hour of light!

I am THRILLED with how incredible that is! Think about how long your average set of batteries would last. Maybe a total of 4-5 hours of light? So for 5 minutes of cranking (not all at once, mind you, just when you need it) you just save yourself $5!

Plus - get this - it's completely waterproof!

You never know where you'll be when you need a flashlight. It could be in the dark corner of your basement, or it could be out in the middle of the woods. If you have a flashlight that isn't waterproof, it's living on borrowed time!

This flashlight is rated to go up to over 16 feet deep underwater with no problems whatsoever. You'll NEVER worry about this tank of a design getting a little wet.

This gives you an option for any situation. And an emergency flasher light is INCREDIBLY noticable in the middle of the road, or out on the trail. Hopefully ya never need it, but it could save your life!

This honestly is one of the most impressive flashlights I've seen... and I've seen a lot of flashlights!

And now I can get to the best part:


These flashlights are quality, they're ingenius, and they're also at a rock-bottom deal: $9.97!

That's $9.97 for the best flashlight your hands will ever hold. Talk about crazy!

Grab yours at the link below while they're still available (and that might not be for long!)

PS - The sale ends Sunday, but it might end sooner when these all sell out!


Today's Joke

Home For The Holidays

Eddie in Dallas calls his son in New York just before Thanksgiving and tells him, "I'm sorry to tell you but your mother and I are getting a divorce. I just cannot tolerate any more of her constant complaining. We can't stand the sight of each other any more. I'm telling you first, Jerry, because you're the oldest. Please tell your sister."

When Jerry calls his sister Julie in Miami, she says: "No way are they getting divorced. I'll go there for Thanksgiving and talk them out of it."

Julie phones here father and tells him: "You must not get divorced. Promise me you won't do anything until I get over there. I'm calling Jerry and we'll both be there with you tomorrow. Until then, don't take any action. Please listen to me." Then she hangs up.

The father puts down the phone, turns to his wife Frances and says, "Good news! Jerry and Julie are coming for Thanksgiving, and they're both paying their own way."

Five Ways To Shake Up Thanksgiving

1. During the middle of the meal, turn to mom and say, "See mom, I told you they wouldn't notice that the turkey was four months past its expiration date. You were worried for nothing."

2. When everyone goes around to say what they are thankful for, say, "I'm thankful I didn't get caught" and refuse to say anything more.

3. Load your plate up high, then take it to the kitchen, toss it all in the blender, and take your "shake" back to the table. Announce that it's the new Thanksgiving Weight Loss Shake.

4. Prepare a several hour long speech to give when asked about your thankfulness. If necessary, insist that no one leave or eat until you have finished the speech.

5. Bring a date that only talks about the tragic and abusive conditions known to exist at turkey farms. Request that she bring photos.

Nose To Nose

This was captured shortly after I drove into Yellowstone from Gardiner. Normally, expectations tend to be low as you make the 5 mile or so drive from Gardiner to Mammoth, but today would prove an exception to that rule. As I drove along, admiring the freshly fallen snow, I rounded a corner and spotted a group of elk congregating in an area known as the “Chinese Gardens”. I wasted no time maneuvering …(More)

Big Sable Lighthouse

Finally got it! This shot was literally 2 years, 5 hikes, and two separate trips in the making – but I was finally – finally - able to pull it off June 2012! Grant and I had been to Ludington State Park the year before and stayed several days in an attempt to get a good shot of the Big Sable Lighthouse – and we failed. ...(More)

Sleeping Bear Stormy Sunset

Talk about a last chance! We had been trying for three days to get something – anything – at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. It doesn’t seem to be a great morning location, so that left us with just three chances – one for each evening we were there. The first evening saw a sunset that was blocked by clouds, the second was ...(More)


Black Bear On Alert

I really love this black bear! We’d seen him (I think it’s a him) a few times in the Cade’s Cove area of Smoky Mountain National Park and he never disappointed us. Working with him does require a bit of a “soft touch” since he’s always a bit more nervous then most of the other bears in that area. It sure doesn’t take much to force...(More)

Owlet Peeking Through The Grass

I love – absolutely LOVE – Burrowing Owls! I don’t know that I’ve ever come across a more photogenic bird. They are amazingly expressive with a dash of cute on the side. This little guy had emerged from his..(More)

Rainbow Falls, Watkins Glen

YES! Finally got it! The first time I saw this waterfall, I was floored. You come around a corner and at first you just see the “auxiliary” falls on the left. Then in the course of just a few excited steps the rest of this amazing scene seems to materialize right in front of you! As the bridge and three tiered falls comes into view, you’re literally...(More)
