For the Urban Survival Cook

Everyone of you should own one of these little beauties along with a couple of gallons of fuel. Especially those of you tucked away in a city apartment. YouTube is your friend for instructions.

This little beauty is a Coleman 502 single burner cook stove, dated 1962, and is in almost new condition.

Take a chance and bid here.

 I speak from experience. You never know when the zombies will attack.

  1. I have one but not that model. They work great and have a nice case for it too.

  2. They do work well. I own several and one is a full kit, but not telling you anything you don't know. I believe everyone should own one...these are the last of these wonderful little Coleman stoves. It'll boil a pot of water quick as a flash. Have a great weekend, Bubba. See 'ya later this month, if not before. Give the boys a hug for me.

  4. We have had one of these for ages...and a single burner Coleman that uses propane bottle as backup. And a 3 burner that we used to use camping..I guess as a backup backup. They are all neat stoves. Reliable. We carry ours in the truck as part of the survival pkg. DH built a nice case for it. Sweet.

    1. See, I knew not only are you beautiful but far brighter than the average star. Your DH is a sharp cookie too. Thanks, my lovely friend.

    1. Yes it is...the smaller Peak from Canada (by Coleman) will fit the bill for backpacking as it folds into a smaller package.

  6. I wonder if you can still gets parts for old Coleman gear. I have a nice Coleman space heater that burns propane, but part of the burner is missing. I emailed them but they never answered me. I looked on Ebay and found the actual heaters, but I just need a part.

  7. I got lucky some time last year and found 5 dual fuel Coleman single burners on sale for $10 each at Wal Mart. 4 live here now, 1 at a friends house.

    1. That is a great deal, Bubba. I do though prefer the older models. Heck, I like all old things. I don't consider a truck worth a spit unless its at least twenty years old. Mine, is fifteen. Almost broken in at nineteen thousand miles. If you find an older model, grab it.
