Re: State of Decay 2

State of Decay and the L4D series are both quintessential zombie games. SoD is really a unique take on it, with its focus on securing supplies and building an effective base. Breakdown really added a lot of longevity to it and a lot of replay value. However, I think L4D is really simple, mindless sh...

Re: Best keychain flashlight

9 years for a keychain light is impressive, IMO. Fenix has great warranty service but I believe it's 5 years for most lights. Their E15 is particularly impressive at 450 lumens. Also the UC01 is convenient with its internal battery and usb charging, similar to the Nitecore Tube, which is another opt...

Re: Child illumination (tested on Halloween)

Fenix CL05 was used for the kid. Can't miss green strobe. That's a nice little marker/ tent light. A green or bluegreen strobe us going to be impossible to miss in the dark. Yeah I won it last Spring. It's not bad. My wife keeps in on her keys. It's basically a mini lantern - soft, even light for u...

Re: Keychain Flashlights

I don't think anyone mentioned the Nitecore Tube yet, so that's an option as well. USB charging is a plus, and thing is tiny. However, mine worked for about a year and died on me. I dunno if I got a lemon or what, but I replaced it with a Fenix UC01. Same basic specs, marginally bigger, but like the...

Re: Keychain Flashlights

I'd say Fenix LD02. 100 lumens max I believe. 1x AAA power, tail switch, clip and 3 modes. Or if your willing to do 1x AA the Fenix E12 is a bit brighter but the trade off is no clip. There is a hole in the tail to attach a lanyard or affix it on keys. It's kind of tough niche because companies usua...

Re: Cocktails and Mixed Drink

I don't drink that much anymore but every so often I'll get a craving to mix something up. My favorite for parties is the Flaming Dr Pepper - take a shot glass of Armeretto, layer some 151 on top, light the shot and drop in a glass of light beer. For a summertime drink try "Sex in a Tent" - Pour som...

Re: What have you bought lately? (Bug Out Version)

I figured it was time to assemble a worthy and functional key chain so lately I've been working on that. First up was a light. I was a bit torn between the Fenix E05, Nitecore Tube and the new Fenix UC01. I ended up going for the UC01 due to the wide beam. The Tube and E05 are good throwers but I te...

Re: Monster "Hit-Man" Energy Shots - are they still around?

The problem with Monster is that given they are such a large company, they can push out new products all the time, but of they don't sell - they are gone. Usually an immediate sign they are dropping a product is when it shows up at Dollar stores. I used to love their espresso drink in the 8 Oz can, ...

Re: Fenix E41 Flashlight Field Use Review.

Awesome review as always, WW! I have an E41 as well and I can attest this is a very high quality light. I like Fenix and I'm partial to AA lights, so this was a no brainer. Unfortunately the E41 got a pretty lukewarm response upon release and many folks didn't like the UI, thus leaving it overlooked...

Re: What presents for 13 year old prepper?

+1 for a Fenix light. At 13, he's getting into the knife age, if not already there, but not all kids are truly ready at that age. Nonetheless a light is a good tool. I think an E12 is a good start, its around $25 and very versatile. It is a small light, so if think something bigger would be a bette...

We used that for awhile but we lost it when we moved. For the final stretch of slinging diapers I was getting sick of si...

Re: What makes a durable and dependable LED flashlight?

Say what you will about Fenix but their QC is tight and their customer service is top notch. As someone who starting collecting a few years back, I approached this with a pretty neutral view and IMO, they are widely praised and have fewer quality issues than say, Nitecore. Don't get me wrong, there'...

I kind of thought Eugene sharing his ammo making plan with Rick was a foreshadowing of sorts. So in a way, I wouldn't be surprised if he gets the bat. However, his death really wouldn't be as significant as Glenn or another major character so on an emotional level I don't know if that is the likely ...

Re: Fear The Walking Dead

The first season wasn't bad. I'm hoping they can be a bit more daring and explore things TWD did not. Plus, there's no comic blueprint of how the series will go so we will never really have any inclinations about the plot.
