Greetings from Finland
I found the forum when someone mentioned you guys on CPF and figured I'd feel more at home around here since I'm looking for something with "more flashlight for the buck" if get you get my meaning... so here I am. Big Smile

Welcome to BLF, jukkapoika.  And not to bash the other place, but we are, indeed, more friendly.

Don't be confused, my Username has been changed from "Cone" to "T.H.Cone".  I'm still the same clown.

Welcome ...

And so you can sing along

 

Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I want to be,
Pony trekking or camping,
Or just watching TV.
Finland, Finland, Finland.
It's the country for me.

You're so near to Russia,
So far from Japan,
Quite a long way from Cairo,
Lots of miles from Vietnam.

 

Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I want to be,
Eating breakfast or dinner,
Or snack lunch in the hall.
Finland, Finland, Finland.
Finland has it all.

 

You're so sadly neglected
And often ignored,
A poor second to Belgium,
When going abroad.

 

Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I quite want to be,
Your mountains so lofty,
Your treetops so tall.
Finland, Finland, Finland.
Finland has it all.

 

Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I quite want to be,
Your mountains so lofty,
Your treetops so tall.
Finland, Finland, Finland.
Finland has it all.

I guess the rest of us are going to have to step up our game.  I wonder if my wife has time to bake some cookies or something that I can mail to Finland.  "Hey, Honey, I need a small favor.  Could you...."

Thanks for the overwhelming welcome... I have a few flashlights already but not much of the modern stuff since I stayed away from the led lights for the longest time... blueish light of the normal 5mm leds give me a migraine. Bought a Fenix "Light Digital" and it has a lot better color but still far cry from the Maglites and UK I have. Any suggestions where to look for next? Although I just ordered one from 4sevens as they had rather large discounts and free shipping...

Welcome - Tervetuloa.

Depends on for what purpose you need/use the flashlights?
