My Coleman Stove
Wayne had an older Coleman stove, but he likes mine better because it is so shiny and new. His has one feature mine doesn't have, his has a click start ignition, so you can click it and it makes a spark to light the gas on fire. With mine, I have to stick that long lighter in the hole on the front and light the gas.
If you don't have a lighter, you could use matches, but I haven't tried that because I am afraid of burning my fingers.
You could also use this stove with a 20 pound refillable propane tank (the green one you see here is a 1-pound non-refillable tank), but to do so you would have to buy a $15 adapter tube. I got one of those at Walmart, so I am ready to go.
I told Wayne that since I am collecting all my own emergency equipment now, he is in charge of his and I am in charge of mine. His garage is too dirty, so I am storing my stuff somewhere else, where I can find it.
