Some of the simplest little things often turn into very big necessities on a camping trip. One of these-the mini flashlight-is often completely overlooked until you need to climb out of your hammock in the middle of the night. The flashlight is most valuable during the first night of your camping trip, when you are making your way back to the camping hammock. The camper without a light runs the risk of walking right into the hammock, the ropes and other supports. The camping or oversize hammock is often slung high enough that it's not thought of as a tripping hazard, but in the dark in an unfamiliar place, anything is possible. Pack a mini-light for those late night needs and avoid the problem altogether.
