Hello All,

I was planning on doing at least one ďover nighterĒ on the ice this year with my portable shelter. Iím hoping someone can make a recommendation on what I can use for lighting outside the hut overnight to make sure Iím visible so I donít risk someone on a sled coming across the lake hitting me in the dark.

If I can help it I would really like to avoid bringing out the generator. Something battery powered thatís not going to die on me while Iím sleeping would be ideal.

Thanks in advance

Flashing light bicyclists wear while riding.

What about getting some reflective tape and affix to each corner of your hut to identify the structure.. the lights of the skidooís should be able to reflect your hut and they will have enough time to avoid hitting you in the dark....
But remember... nothing is guaranteed!

You could try a couple of glow sticks.

I have these ones from Clam. http://stores.clamoutdoors.com/clam/access...ety-lights.html

I set up on a shoal on Simcoe one night for burbot. It wasn't too far off of the snowmobile trail so I used a couple of driveway markers as well.

As for carbon monoxide, I got a battery powered model for about $20 from Home Hardware. I leave it in my gear and keep a spare 9-volt obviously. But it is light, simple and provides peace of mind.

A string of Coors light cans should reflect nicely.
