Filthie's Mobile Fortress Of Solitude

Filthie's Mobile Fortress Of Solitude
Where Great Intelligence Goes To Be Insulted

 Only thing outta place there is the kerosene lantern. I went to kerosene when I couldn’t get my Coleman lanterns to work. I bought two or three and left the last one in the trash. Kerosene is not as powerful but that didn’t bother me at all. I left them going all night outside the tent in case I had to take a leak…and they worked wonderfully. But … those glass globes are fragile as hell. I have them in my preps along with back up globes and kerosene. 

For backpacking I’d go with a chithouse LED flashlight and call it good.

  1. Weight matters. No lanterns. No hatchets. Everything gets weighed and I am harsh about what makes the cut to be added to the pack.The pack, sleeping bag and tent are going to be 10 pounds or so all by themselves. The goal (for me) is to be around 30 pounds with food, 2 quarts of water, and everything else I need for a week.

  2. Honestly, I prefer kerosene to a Coleman lantern. White gas and propane are bright, but just too bright for me. I guess if I want to live in perfect lighting, I'll go inside or wait till daytime.

  3. I’ve got my first check total of $15,550, pretty cool. I am so excited, this is the first time i Actually earned something. I am going to work even harder now and I can't wait for next week's payment. Go to the HOME tab for more detail. Www.Profit97.Com

  4. Mr. Filthie, someone HAS to be manufacturing a kerosene globe that is strong enough to take travel bumps and stuff. Even DIY build - Youtube has to have someone able to show how they did that.

    LED is very convenient and compact, but I wouldn't consider it very companiable if you take my meaning. Like a wood fire, a lantern gives me a 'I'm not alone after all - got this fire".
