So far, and Dave A hasn't said anything yet, we have 47-52 total, includes propanes and battery powered. I know that Kevin Dave and Scott will certainly add to the numbers. Doug


Table lamps??? Well, can I bring my floor lamp, as long as I bring a long enough extension cord?? Haven't had it out camping since the Glyphs a few years back!!

Man wish I could go :(

I have 8 white gas Colemans, 4 Propane Colemans, and about a dozen Dietz oil lamps.

Someday when I have money AND some time off

Never seem to get the 2 of those things together

If I can get my 3 white gas lanterns working I'll bring those...at least 2 propane lanterns...and 2 LED lanterns. Have other battery Coleman lanterns that will be making the trip as well, just because they pack well and will be used inside the Grasshopper.

Maybe I'll get lucky and get some more white gas Colemans before then...maybe a 'turd'????

Stoves aren't gonna count towards anything. Lanterns only. Doug

:thinking: ... what's the world record for number of white gas stoves burning at once? You could probably take that one all by yourself, Doug ... :lol: :lol: :lol: ...!

And, what the hey ... they only take up a little more room, and ... well ... it could be another WORLD RECORD to be set at the IRG ... :applause: ...! Probably would want to do it on another night though, maybe ...

Sue, take your full length mirror. Now that might be something to see set up behind the lanterns.

I wished I could go but that is the money time of the year for me. Unless I get fired, then will really be to broke.

I'm going to make this a sticky till after the IRG...

Lee and I were talking about building some sort of crude display rack....so it's really important that everyone let us know what they are going to bring. We can't build, if we don't know what kind of numbers to expect....help us out on this, please! A rack or shelf system, even crude, beats a whole bunch of lanterns sitting on the ground....It's all about "plate presentation"....hey....even Denny's puts parsley on the plate! Doug

If you were looking for suggestions for crude racks, I took these photos with KISS in mind.

Perhaps a simple diagram with dimensions, and a few volunteers to make the same rack design out of scrap wood. The base has a couple hinges so that it could be folded out. It all breaks down easily.

Count on me for one gas lantern. If I'm able to borrow a few more, I will let you know.

How about making a circle of lanterns instead of a line of lanterns? :D Danny
