I had someone save my bacon with one of these! Got to the campground right at dusk, picked a site that was way too small, but near friends and took forever to get parked. He offered it up, I said no - so he went and got it anyway. I thanked him afterwards. Didn't get too cozy with him- he looked like a Ron Jeromy double (well, a clothed-version of him!).
I do like the idea of permanently mounted lights. Until then, I'm throwing a spotlight into the basement to save me from me.
