3F50076E-3743-4823-9506-BDEB91458524.jpeg  It was a glorious day today here in central North Carolina, with lower humidity that invited outside activities.

Couldn’t let the day end without a light up...lantern here is a 242b that I plan to make a regular around the fire pit this fall.  It was in great shape when I got it, only needing a new fuel cap gasket to be a “really useful lantern”.

Very nice looking lantern. I know how the heat is down there I was stationed at Seymour Jhonson AFB. It definitely got uncomfortable at time’s

Looks good, Cliff! Glad to hear you got it up and running with little effort.

We had a couple wickies going tonight for some soft light on the deck. It’s been a beautiful weekend so far.

Is that one Canadian? It has a Canadian vent nut but they were also sold as replacements. Also has a wing nut holding the burner frame. My only 242 that has that wing nut is a Canadian B.
