Now, we have never used or taken glow sticks hiking but these look pretty handy.
Selica from Peak Survival does a great job (much better than Frank would) in explaining what they are like and how they work (from a snow cave)
Why do we like the look of them?
Each unit is actually a:
- glow stick (that lasts for 200 hours)
- emergency flasher
- and has replaceable batteries
Peak Survival is also an interesting site to check out. Their blurb explains:
Peak Survival is dedicated to motivating people of all ages and backgrounds to get outdoors, celebrate the bountiful beauty of nature and learn how to utilize its gifts. Our courses combine education and nature to provide an exciting learning environment.
It fascinates us that there are so many courses in the U.S. for people to learn how to survive in “the bush”. Frank learnt most of his “skills” via the Scouts and from experience.
Have you ever used glow sticks as lighting while camping or hiking?
Have you ever attended an “Outdoor Survival” course?
If we ever decided to run a course about basic hiking or camping would you be interested in attending? We thought it might be fun one day!
