@1hpycmpr do you think I’d be the youngest iccc member if I joined?
My friends don’t call me “Lantern/lampie Levi”
for nothin’,if they did call me that.

Looking for bday lanterns 8/38, 8/41, 
10/25, and 8/07

The biggest lie I tell myself is
”I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it.”

Lanterns are like tools. 
You can not have too many unless your wife says so!!

Gas is what you use for washing parts diesel is for making power!

I’d say you qualify.  I keep telling myself “I use everything I have” truth is if I did, all at once, I’m pretty sure I’d be responsible for global warming.  Good thing some people think it’s Trump’s fault and don’t realize there is a global cabal of Coleman Collectors who are actually to blame... 😂

Man, that dog is pretty old. I wish I had a dog, but I’m allergic. Annoying

I just used my '47 500 to cook up a big ol' stir-fry last night. It throws plenty of heat for the wok, but the wok is a little unstable perched atop the 500. I need to make some kind of flame ring to make it more stable.

I sort of " Glamp" while camping, don't carry much but I am beyond comfortable compared to a tent.

Can't sleep, squirrels will eat me....

If you need a Sun Flame Generator Model 100-107 ( for Sunflame lanterns models 105, 106, 107 and 110) give me a PM, I have close to 80 of those, 15 bucks each.

Coffee perking on my 417B as I type this.  Use my stoves constantly, lanterns not much in summer.

Thanks for posting.

I consider "glamping" is using a vehicle to get to your campsite. I miss backpacking. I sure do miss doing my social distancing these days.

Welcome!  I have a strict use it or lose it motto.  ( I break this rule pretty often now) I camp a lot so most of it get's used once a year at least, but I can't use it all at once so that makes me a collector.  I love the pictures here!

I'm a car camper too, I often put things in my car for a base camp with the clamping luxuries and then take a backpack from there to go hike for an overnight and back.  I always say I don't want more than I can use and it keeps my collection small, but after having broken the glass on one of my favorites, it is getting harder and harder to keep my own rule.  There is always one more....

I may steal that idea ... go backpacking from a base camp. So smart.

Me, glamping:

After many years of backpacking, I'm now a Van camper. No tent to set up and take down, nice comfy bed instead of hard, cold, lumpy ground.

I am starting to consider it .. a campervan. I car camp with a 1977 GMC van. My retro ride. I have a large tent which is becoming a chore to do. The rest I don't suffer. I have a very comfortable bed (ground would kill me now) and furniture. I simply love the tent. I have even been considering a Klondike tent on a permanent site to continue with a tent without the set up each time.

My Vanagon isn't a Westy camper conversion. I just put a bed platform made from plywood and 2 X 2s in it. Six inches of foam and I'm a hippie camper! I don't mind setting the kitchen up outside--in fact I prefer it--and I have a 12 X 12 canopy for rain and sun when I need it.

In my 87 1st gen Toyota 4X4  mini van, I fold the back seat down (Mid seat are long gone), lay three 1X12's from there to the "engine cover" for a deck and pad that for a sleeping platform.  Perfect for one.  Other than that its like Timm - setup outside and canopy for rain/sun. 

I can set the outside part of camp up in 5-10 min.  Low folding tables I made that travels on top of the bedding and setup first, and then my "pantry/stove/lantern/fuel" box on top of that.  A chair, maybe a tarp overhead - maybe a second lantern.  (I've become partial to the Sears Jr for that)  the wash station...  That just about does it.

My stoves are both from the 70s.  My lanterns are from 1959 to 1970.  I no longer use any thing older than that while camping.  At the same time, you see I don't use the newer Power House lanterns as they are not as dependable as the older 220's and 228's.
Propane is not allowed in my camp except for running my heater and hot water tank.  We camp in the cold a lot and my wife is not going to go with out a few creature comforts!
