The Sears Die Hard!!

Postby SuperShady1 » Wed May 29, 2013 1:44 pm

What if we told you we left this Minty Sears Lantern on the Freezing Lake Erie for not just one month, not just two months but for 5 months !! And it Started right up!! :shock:



What would you say??!! :R

Thanks to the Sears Die Hard Lantern..sold only at Sears!! :thumbsup:

For those who say you can not find a Sears in California...I say you can find a Sears in California...a Sears lantern. :lol:

Here is my newly found 6/1972 Sears Dualie Die Hard Lantern. Well it is in Minty shape and she fired up really nicely so why not call her a Die Hard...plus back then the Die Hard battery was all the rage.

The source of this Lantern is top secret and will remain so until I remove all his treasures or my wife beats the heck out of me....she loves the color and big hat on the Sears...so maybe I am safe for a week or two. :BE :dancing

My son and I did a little light up on the back porch in hopes of priming his interest in lanterns and vintage camping. He is in scouts and mostly a good boy. He seemed to like the mechanics of it all so may look for his own lantern soon. :applause:

That and the fact that there is fire involved might have helped too! As a kid I made my own stoves from coffee cans and coat hangers...didn't get to play with the lantern till I was older. Doug

I hear yah Doug adding fire to any equation tends to drive up interest real quickly. These days the kids(ours) have everything they want and sometimes two of everything if they have two sets of parents!!

I have my boy help set up camp and tear it down about 90% of the time...memory hands on learning I think...but add fire into and he get very interested!!
