    Last night: Moon mode on my Quark Pro 1xAA.

    I took out the garbage.

    My life is one big adventure.

    Got on the bike on a weeknight for the first time in months and lit my way with the bike-mounted BC30 and improvised helmet-mounted HL55. Lights did their job admirably ... valves on my innertubes and my tire inflator didn't fare so well.

    Not my story, but interesting. Two students from the town of Maastricht in the Netherlands went into a marlstone cave (quarry more likely) for a walk in Belgium using only their phones as lights. They could not find the exit soon enough and their batteries died. After about 21 hours they had luckily found a small opening and they could call out for help. A nearby sheep's herder heard them and called the emergency services.

    Now I've heard enough stories of people going into these caves without a guide (most cave guides started out by illegally exploring the caves themselves), but I personally cannot comprehend why you wouldn't at least take proper equipment along (a basic quality flashlight and spare batteries would be the least IMHO (let alone a backup)).
