I really like those Coleman backpacking lanterns. I see them 222 models on ebay from time to time. They are nice because they are small and you can take them with you in the woods or portaging with the canoe. Not big and heavy and bulky to carry around. 

Did they make any backpacking lanterns in the States or just Canada?

If so what models of the backpacking lantern did they make in the States?

How many different models of the backpacking lantern is there?

I wonder if amazon sells them?

I think the 222b was US. Still hoping to find a September 1989 for my birthday.

The backpacking series hasn’t been sold for a while but you can still find new on eprey. Nice little stove and lantern but for real packing they are heavy.

They were made in both the US and Canada, pretty much throughout the span of 222, 222a, b, 226, (even a Japan 226) US and Japan 229, and I believe a US 3022.  Some had overlap in build years to the other models for some reason or other...

I have a 226 with a mesh screen that I keep in my 426 stove.  It fits nicely, wrapped in a hand towel.  I just cut down one of the mesh screens for a 220 lantern.  A little sturdier and easier to come by than a 226 glass these days.

They were made in Canada for both the US and Canada lanterns until about midway through the 222B run. Then the Canada plant was shut down and production moved to the US to finish out the 222B run. Everything after that, 226, 229, 3022 were made in the US.

They have not been sold on Amazon for years. 

How many different ones are there? A bunch! Here are the Canada, US, one European, and two from Japan. I know there are a few from Japan that I am missing and one from Canada.

No sir. I know what lanterns I have. Let’s see. I’ve got a 228c, 3 220f’s, a 220e, a 220d, 242c, 220j, 220h, some kamplite I never learned the model, and a 425nl. I don’t need a spreadsheet because I have so little stuff that I have it memorized.

Its the easiest way to keep track of things  Inventory of my tools, the GPA's  Notes on things I want, or want to make,  Links to references I don't want to lose.    I even use it for a sketch pad for simple drawings.  Its near unlimited what can be done:

Here is a conceptual sketch for a lantern box I'm planning to build:

Your sig says it all though:  "The biggest lie I tell myself is  "I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it.”

Your just getting started  I have 50 cf lanterns plus some more in Profane and Kero, I also track the month/year,  and where it is at (Gee is the '36 242 in the tent trailer of the camping closet?)

Same for stoves:  (34 - at least)

Tools:  somewhere around 7000 tools (That one is incomplete...  I believe I mentioned the box count already...)

Not even tying to remember all that in detail...

I estimate my taxes on spreadsheets, Vehicle Diaries (if the MPG drops its time to look at what might be going south.., but operational cost is there also) , My BP, hunting/Camping pack list, its a tool and makes my life easier.

Man, sounds complicated. I totally forgot about my sig. My grandpa used to say that all the time, and it worked out for him. He’d have a massive list of parts needed for a car he was fixing and he’d just start listing them at the auto parts store. Also, only 50 cf lanterns. Man I’m in big trouble. I’ve only been really goin at it since well when did I join ccf? About the 7th of august, and I’ve gotten 6 lanterns since. Oh man, I really am in trouble. I forgot I have a clx. Do you have to have a pc for spreadsheets. I’ve literally never used a spreadsheet before. And can I maybe kinda sorta steal your box design?

Learning Excel will serve you well for almost anything you may do in life.  A big part of my value at work is my ability to use Excel.   but outside or inside of work; Household finances the stuff I mentioned before,  I've done ballistics for reloading,  business finances and dealings construting forms for work...   use it constantly, There isn't always "an App for that" 

An alternative to Excel, but with some limits for higher end functionality, is Google Sheets.  (comes free with Gmail/Google account)  I prefer Excel and yes, on a laptop or PC.  I have one of the largest monitors in the office because I need it for my Excel work, and that's a peripheral part of my work.  

All my kids and SMBO all learned Excel from me.  all use it routinely now, if at differing levels of complexity.

Have at it on the box design.  The final dimensions need to be tailored for the particular lantern,  but It's all doable.

@Leviticus Tomethreus and @outlawmws Google Sheets works great for a basic spreadsheet like my Coleman inventory. It's really handy being able to quickly look at my spreadsheet to see what I own. Organizing my collection would be a mess without it. Having it cloud-based and therefore accessible from any of my devices with an internet connection makes it handy too.

One other thing that will be useful as you get more pieces. Hang a white hang tag on your lantern. Put the model and date on that hang tag. Half my lanterns are in cases in the garage so it's nice to quickly have a look at the tag to see what's in the case without having to actually open the case.

 I've got a 10/92 226(df) u.s.a. here, might want to add that to the spreadsheet. I can take pics to verify if desired? in the above it looked as if earliest noted u.s. 226(df) was 1993
