    Light Sets at Lowes on sale

    I was at Lowes this weekend and found battery operated light sets (10 LED lights) on sale for $4.50. They would make great hammock lights for hammock camping. The lights are different colors and flash seperately, they do not all light at once. There is even a sensor that responds to noise or voice to make the lights flash only when there is noise. They run off of three AA batteries.
    Now you can just yell and your hammock lights will light to let you know where your stealth hammock is.

    The lights were located up by the cash register.

    but what about when Bigfoot is around grunting? Then the lights would go on, wake you up and you'd have to get up and have a chat with the sasquatch....

    The lights do have an off switch. LOL... Just turn it back on sensor when you go for your bathroom visit.

    I can see someone forgetting to turn them off before hitting the hammock. When they start snoring, the blinking begins.

    Cheaper than the eno lights at $20! Could be a plus or minus that the eno’s DON’T have the Sasquatch warning voice control...

    They were on the shelf up by the cash register. In a square box that says Strobe Light String.
    Also, I found a NiteIze Twistlit at Walmart. It is a bike light with two twist ties, that would be great for the hammock. It was in the bike section.
