Just a random question. I have found that instead of lighting an outdoor light I’ve now put up hangers to use lanterns to light my outdoor areas. The light is brighter, yet warmer.  007050AA-8A6D-4A04-9A56-5A93F7C10246.jpeg  6479CC7F-7C47-41FE-B771-6A5023409856.jpeg

I wish I had an area to light outside
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

Remember that Coleman recommends at least 11" clearance from the top of the bail to flammables.

My porch lantern hanger has a chain that's about two feet long to keep heat away from the dehydrated wood gable.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.
Walk a mile in a man's shoes before you criticize him--then you're a mile away, and he has no shoes.

So maybe I should stop putting lit lanterns on a nail in the rafters. Good to know

That's from the instructions on the box of a Coleman Lantern Tree Hanger.

When I'm actually spending time outside I use my GPA but I still have use my electrics on the porch and others with motion detectors for the rest of the time.
It's nice to know there's a bear outside BEFORE I open the door. (Yes, it's happened.)

We have solar pathway lights here along with five outdoor lights. 2 by the main garage door 1 by the entry door to the garage which also will light up the swimming pool pathway.
1 by the back door which I can't stand and have the bulbs screwed out and one by the front door which nobody ever goes in or out of. If the wife goes to the store and comes back after dark she turns the main garage door light on so she can see before she leaves. if I do light up a lantern it's a 200 that i hang from a tree usually done when bbq is being used.

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 have no porch light, but have several hangers for lanterns.  The porch roof is aluminum and steel, so no worries.

I do have a porch light but it is annoying to replace the bulb, so I gave up on it. I don’t have to worry about bears in Nebraska, thankfully. I find that in my back room they provide the perfect amount of light to read by and actually help me go to sleep. I run through all my lanterns on a rotation so I don’t feel bad about using one more than the others. I do have a favorite, though I am not ready to commit to publicly announcing which one it is!

At our cottage on the kitchen ceiling there used to be 12-in square of asbestos cloth with a hook in the middle of it for the express purpose of hanging a Coleman lantern.  One of the beams in the middle room of the cottage to this day still has a piece of asbestos cloth wrapped around it with a hook in the middle, again for a GPA.

Or you could just electrocute a rotted out lantern for a porch light.

It's on a motion sensor, so it turns on when I pull into the driveway or open the door. Or when a deer or skunk or the neighbor's cat or dog walks by.

Steve, ya lions and bears oh my here too. Big bear scat in the yard a couple weeks ago and last June. A mountain lion was eating a racoon at midnight in the neighbors yard in May. A couple years ago a large bear ran up out of a ditch onto the highway about a block ahead of me while I was riding my bike. That will get your attention!
"It's nice to know there's a bear outside BEFORE I open the door. (Yes, it's happened.)"

Here is a yard lantern I got at a yard sale a couple summers ago. Traded it for a 200A.
