Coleman to the rescue!
I wonder how many here value their Coleman stuff as assets in emergency situations?
Spring storms, hurricanes, power outages---you know.
It appears that a modest investment can turn a thrift shop/swap meet purchase into some useful,
and therefore justifiable, assets in an emergency

I have several stoves and lanterns for the inconvenience of a power outage

My son got his car broken into, driver's side window busted so we got the shop vac out of the garage of terror to suck up all the busted safety glass. While the garage door was open I went up the ladder to the little loft where I remember stashing my Coleman stuff, and pulled out the first box I saw and brought it down. It was a grey-ish plastic case holding an unused 508 single burner stove stamped 01 and 91 so I'm guessing 1991?
How it came into my possession I can only guess.
I had a single mantle lantern & single burner stove, Peak1 IIRC, painted black that I donated to the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake Relief in Santa Cruz---lots of people camping out and the electricity was out so I thought the Coleman stuff would be useful. I thought the Peak 1 stuff was too heavy for back packing anyway, but for some reason I must have felt the need to replace the single burner stove. Why? I've no idea as this one has never been fired up.
It's a cool little stove!

If you are going to tease and not show a pic...dude that's harsh. You are right...the 01 is Jan and the 91 is 1991.

Lots of Coleman folks collect things that match their birth month and year...some are easier than others. Some folks take it so far as to hunt down birth stuff for their kids and grand kids and other special dates, anniversary and so forth.
