My friends and I live by the rule of three. Our recent flood destroyed a few items of my gear. One item was my Coleman two-burner camp stove. I still have it and will probably ask my friend, Shooter Steve, to work his magic and restore the old critter for me, but in the meantime I've been cruising Ebay.
This morning I placed a bid on what I hope will be my old stoves replacement. It's a model 425F built in 1979 with its original box. It's in excellent condition.
I still have means of meal prep with my LP kitchen range, grill, and portable military surplus alcohol stove, but I find Coleman stoves hard to beat. As it stands there is a hole in my preps that needs to be filled.
I've left a message for the other bidder.....he or she better heed my warning. I want that stove.
