A heavy heart.

The thing that resides in my daysac, that thankfully has never been used, is my emergency strobe light, its been there for a number of years, unused.

I bought it several years ago, in Joe Browns in Capel Curig, on their bargain basement stand.

It still cost me 14, but its one of those items that heaven forbid if you did come to grief, and twisted your ankle or even worse, in the upper reaches of the Carneddau, the mountain rescue lads, would see you straight away.

Its supposed to have a range of nearly 5miles, and the flashing light it gives off, is mighty impressive, far better than a silly whistle.


This thing is fully waterproof, and can be seen from a huge distance.

The inside pocket which came free with my sleeping bag. I never use it. More often than not, I forget it's even there. If I did use it, I'd likely forget I'd put something in there.  Having said all that, I think it could be bettered if it had a zipper.

Paracetamol, (my wife insists) I always carry four with me but have never needed them yet.
