Fire

My friend, That Guy, posted a cool picture of his new Coleman lantern last night. Since I'm on a Coleman equipment kick I made a comment to him I'd post other pictures too. I said I'd post photos taken of my Coleman 502 Single Burner Stove.

I lied.

This is my new/old Coleman Peak Backpack Stove made in Canada by Coleman. It's small enough to fit in the palm of my hand. Burns white gas or Coleman fuel. With an adapter it will also use kerosene.

Notice the orange flame. She's in the warm stage. After about a minute she'll be ready to kick a pot of waters butt.

Now, she's a hot blue beauty. Ready to prepare your meal. It'll boil a pot of water in about three minutes.

I haven't as yet had a chance to unload and fire my Coleman 502. Give me a few days and I'll post pictures of her too. These little cooking gems can still be found on Ebay. Bid carefully and be aware of the shipping cost.

Seems I have a Coleman bug....it's addictive.

Remember, try and live by the rule of three.

  2. Nice - one of my good friends had one years ago on our Boundary Waters trips. Long since migrated to the MSR Whisperlite, but lots of good memories wrapped up on your photo!

    1. I've always wanted to float the Boundary Waters. Guess I just have a thing for old equipment. Thank you, my good friend.

  4. Great burner to have.
    Do you also have a small burner that burns wood?
