    Weather/AM/FM radio

    An easy solution is to carry aa light back up and aa radio. Even c or d radios can run on aa’s with spacers.But if they made a cheap 18650 powered radio I’d probably buy one.

    2021-share your outings

    Great pics. Beautiful location. It totally sucks that boots are not working, though I had same issue in middle age, especially after working out for years. All of a sudden shoes/boots that were great no longer were and the search was on. Very frustrating.

    The Malkoff Front Porch

    Ha! You’re right, Teflon tape does work. It’s a little messy trying to change batteries, and it might get torn up twisting hi/lo so much it doesn’t work, but it is a Mcgyver fix it for now.

    Hi from Rome

    Hi, welcome to CPF. Have many fond memories of Rome and always had a good light for walking at night to warn the crazy drivers. Hope to visit again soon, COVID permitting of course.
