I walked up to where my Lieutenant is and drop to one knee, thinking to myself, “man this is a relief on my knees.” Sometimes when you walk for miles in the mountains and carrying a pack full of gear can be hard. But this is what we do and why I am here! My Lieutenant looks at all of us and says that we can break camp here for the night. Each one of us looked around the area and got up to set up our tents.
I took off my backpack and disconnected the straps holding my tent in place and started setting up. After adjusting the poles and laying the anchors down, I was done. Throw my pack in the tent and unrolled the sleeping bag. I then went around camp to make sure no one else needed help and then finished with setting the camp up. Next LT called out what everyone’s watch duty was and we sat down to eat our wonderful prepared MRE’s. Time to turn in, looking around and seeing everyone head off to their tents with their small flashlights. I could see the light shine through each tent moving around like it was opening night at the movies with lights shinning everywhere. Not me, as I smiled leaning into my tent and hitting the button on my new folding solar powered led lantern I had hanging up in my tent. “BAM” the light turns on and lights up my entire tent! This folding solar lantern is amazing! I could see everything in my tent and with the hook attached to it so it can hang, made it even better. I jumped in my sleeping bag and adjusted everything around and reached for the switch to turn it off. Man, awesome! No more setting the flashlight down and only shinning on half the tent. Oh yeah plus not wasting batteries. Thanks Secur!
