I know it's maybe a bit early to start with the "what should I bring to Beast" questions and lists, but DS has his appt and the grandparents are already asking about graduation gifts. I've told them the possibilities besides money are few, since he won't be taking/needing much. However, I've seen headlamp and flashlight come up a few times and wonder if anyone with direct knowledge -- ie. you've either been through Beast recently, or had a daughter or so who has, could weigh in on whether or not one of these items would be helpful to have? I've seen both "I really wish I had brought one..." and "I don't know why anyone would bring one..."
