When it comes to lighting, most people assume that you only need light for visibility but then a very bright light could also scare away some wild animals. For lighting you should at least have:
- a flashlight
- emergency candles
- a lantern
If you have a high-end tactical flashlight, its super-bright beam will do more than just provide you with adequate visibility, it can easily scare off some wild animals. Flashlights are excellent when you are in motion but when you settle on a camping spot you need a lantern. Don’t forget emergency candles, you never know when you might need them.
