I feel we are still running on impulse power. When will Scotty get the Warp Drive fixed? You know he once told an intern to never give an honest estimate of repair time so he could have it fixed in time for the Captain's plan.

Here is a picture of eight Coleman lanterns on shepherd hooks to light up the cornhole stadium at the family farm on Labor Day Weekend'

Light one up for Doug

Postby The Teardrop Nanny » Fri Mar 02, 2018 6:58 pm

For those who have followed this thread.....please take a moment to LIGHT UP a lantern in honor of Doug Hodder, owner and curator of his own Coleman Museum, giver of advice, fellow teardrop builder, and good camping buddy. Doug passed away on 2/22 after a valiant fight with cancer. He was a frequent contributor to this forum, and in particular to this thread and anything related to Coleman items and the building of teardrops. Doug would appreciate you firing up a vintage lantern or stove in his memory.

Been thinking about how we could recognize Doug and his contributions to the teardrop world that influenced so many of us at our upcoming Shasta Lake Gathering. Decided a lantern light up would be an appropriate tribute. So, bring your lanterns and we'll light them up for Doug... after we get so bright he'll be able to see them! we'll dim them one by one and leave a single lantern burning for Doug. If you'd like to participate from afar, light a lantern Friday, April 27th at dusk.

Just another picture that mixes Coleman and teardrops. This one is from a while ago, when I was living in my teardrop while working out of town, that lantern saved my sanity while cooking in negative temperatures....

The original poster Kampmaster-K isn't around anymore to keep the thread alive. (:
Sad, but people move on.

I know, I am sick.

Wait, what...? :shock:

You have a spreadsheet to keep track of all your Coleman gear? You are sick... and I like it!

While searching for a cooler to convert into a camp kegerator I came across this Coleman Ice Box. I understand that is the name that Coleman used for them in the '60s. It was complete and in great shape. I did not want to cut it up though and after a year or so I sold it to a guy who is into vintage camping. He was happy to get it as these things are fairly rare.
