Expedition Sky Flare who knew having fun could save your life?
Going camping doesn’t always mean the same thing to everyone. Some are going out to reconnect with nature, others are going to get away from technology, and some bring everything but the kitchen sink with them, and only went because they want a change in scenery. While most of us aren’t terribly adventurous in our excursions into the wild, that doesn’t mean that something won’t go wrong.
If you have an emergency come up while you’re out hiking at night, and are too far out to receive signal on your phone, you’re going to have to find a different way to acquire help. Yelling at the top of your lungs may work, but that’s only if there’s anyone around to hear you. You’ll need a signal like the Expedition Sky Flare if you want to get any notice.
This is a slingshot sort of setup in which you set the little rocket that has an LED on it and send it flying into the air. You’ll need to make sure you actually turn on the light before you toss it up though. Once launched, it can go up to 50′ vertically, and is said to make a whistling sound as it returns to the ground. This will only cost around $8, and would also be fun for playing with at night. Just so long as you’re not using it in the woods where people might think you’re in real danger (boy who cried wolf if you catch my drift).
