I can vouch for this option Klarus HR1. Got it with the Li-ion battery option. Has spot, flood and red modes, is light and comfortable. SO many options now it's a challenged to sift through even a fraction of them. Cheers,

Jump to new posts Wine with dinner by PerryMK @ 06/23/22 04:19 PM

Last night I ordered a glass of wine with dinner (I wasn’t driving) and the waiter asked for my ID. I replied, do I really look that young?! He said no, he just wanted to check if I qualified for a senior citizen discount.

I hear you, JKW. You're one of the folks who have mentioned this. And I agree about specifics. We have well more than 100 trip reports on our site. Not one mentions a specific campsite, or even recommends areas to camp. But we do write up every hike

Glad to hear you haven't given up on these plans! It is a beautiful area. I remember mountain biking in Kettle Moraine when I was a student at Marquette. It sounds like you are well on your way to becoming a seasoned backpacker.
