One of the more interesting pieces of gear that has seen a lot of use lately here in Greenwoodistan is the Fenix L0D flashlight. For many years I carried a Mini-Maglight single AAA cell flashlight on my key chain, however lately I decided to upgrade my daily carry light to something a little more substantial. The Fenix throws out three light levels, in order the light turns on, medium, low, and high. The high setting rivals my Surefire E2E for light brightness. In addition, the Fenix has settings that blast SOS in Morse code and a strobe light in high settings.
Granted I put down $33 on my Fenix as opposed to the roughly $6 spent on a Mini-Maglite. The Lithium batteries the Fenix likes also run roughly twice what the normal alkaline batteries cost, however the cost is most definitely worth it for the added light and versatility of the Fenix. My Fenix has held up fine in the course of a year's use and still looks nearly new, as witnessed by these photos. I can recommend it highly.
We have just heard reports that El Rushbo was taken to the hospital suspected of having a heart attack. If these reports are true, our thoughts and prayers are with The Most Dangerous Man in America and we trust that he will be with us to remain America's Anchorman until everyone does agree with him. Hang in there Mr. Rush, we're pulling for ya.

Since no one else seems to remember, lets recall that today is the 68th anniversary of the cowardly Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. I know its been nearly seven decades, and I know we really showed them what it means to wake a sleeping giant, but you still won't catch me even glancing at a Jap car. Remember Pearl Harbor.
RF Wakefield was never intended just as a rant zone, we will be providing, from time to time, some information from our contributors. One new addition will be the review of the various equipment and tools that we use here in the Greenwood Bunker on a regular basis. Stay tuned for the first of several long-term reviews of the daily gear that finds regular use deep behind enemy lines.
