|All I ever take if I am sure it's close to dark is a mini -mag, these put off great light and are much easier to carry about.|
I have a minimag in my daypack just in case, but the headlamp is a nice hands free light. This is especially useful when I have a gps in my left hand, and a dog leash in the right. I like to keep my other hand free.
There is something really neat about going in to these small parks after dark, and searching for caches. These pleasant little parks during the day, can be downright eerie at night. When I went after Mother In Law's Walk, it was just plain spooky. Also finding the cache in the dark can be more challenging.
In the GPS model of the universe, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line...through creeks, thorn bushes, horse piles, whatever....
