I can't find my Coleman lantern. I may have gave it away.

I know that someone here now has a Coleman made for Sears and is fixin' to strip the paint and do a custom paint job.

It ain't me, BTW.

Jocose needs a Coleman. Maybe a birthday Coleman Lantern.

I may head up to the thrift shop. They seem to have several old Coleman lanterns and stoves when I visit.

Now that I can't find my Coleman..

I was hoping to find a Coleman at the thrift store today. I always see them in there along with the old stoves. Maybe next time, I'll keep my eyes peeled for sure.

You need your Coleman stove handy for philosophical discussions over a brew.

After not using the Coleman lantern for probably 10 years or so I must have finally given it away. Now I finally want to dig it out... pfft. Just as well.

I bought a 200A on eBay and it was supposed to be delivered by Nov. 3. Still not here. I've been watching the tracking and it was in Lubbock for 4 days but now it is in Dallas. I asked my postman what most likely happened and he said it was either damaged or they wrote down the wrong zip code. In any event, I am not happy.

Are you displaying them in your man cave or something?

Mostly I try to get them running and then they live in the man cave. In the future, I am planning on painting them in some way. For instance, this is a custom job that looks like it could be factory but they don't paint them this color:

I am not sure why but I really like this look.

Check out the continuing saga: It's back in Lubbock. It was scheduled to be delivered on Nov 3. It is still not out for delivery.

I like the Black/Blue combo but my favorite Sears is the Red/Black.
