Solar-Light Night

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

I always enjoy a well-lit campsite, but hate having electrical cords strewn everywhere. My solution involves solar lights and flower pots. My husband bored a hole into the base of a flower pot and inserted a solar patio-type light. I don’t need to use the stakes that come with the lights, as the base goes through far enough that the lights stay in place. My solar lights can now be placed anywhere, even on a concrete pad or patio. All I need is a little sunshine during the day, and there is plenty of illumination once the sun goes down. I now have six of these lights, and I pack them in a plastic tub. The pots stack neatly so they can all fit in a compartment.
