Okay, parents and kids...and monsters and the platoons of Ironmen and Woodies and Buzzes, it's finally Halloween.
So how do you protect yourself in the darkness which you will eagerly go into? Well, chances are it's not vampires or the undead that we have to worry about but rather it's the very much living. Yeah, regular old humans.
There are going to be lots of kids in the neighborhood especially with Halloween falling on a weekend, even if it's a Sunday night.
So for mobile warriors, here's a tip. Charge up your mobile phones, iOS/Android devices, or other smartphones.
Then set the screen to full brightness and let them stay on linger than you might normal would. This will not really help as a flashlight but it can act as a signal to drivers that there are people in the vicinity.
There are apps that function as flashlights but I have never given them any thought so I don't know how well they work. I know that there is even an iPhone lighter app.
But the best way to stay safe is to carry a flashlight. Each chaperon should carry one. Maybe some of the little monsters as well.
I like the rechargeable ones that you can wind up to juice up the battery. 30 Seconds or so will power up the flashlight for extended used.
And you can get those from just about anywhere now.
So have a great, scary, and safe Halloween, my fellow mobile warriors!
