Small gathering in Rock Island State Park, Rock Island, Tennessee 1/22/22

Post by Volvoguy »

Hello everyone, we are having a small educational program over vintage camping gear (with the focus being on vintage Coleman Lanterns and Stoves). Our newest ranger has set this program up after I had planned to do it with someone who transferred out, so it has been a long time coming. He did talk me up a bit in the description (I'm pretty new at this) but I do have plans to have a cutaway font and some other aids.

Most importantly everyone can bring whatever they'd like to show off and demonstrate. I will have a 237, some 220s, 425, and a couple 413s at the very least. All vintage camping things are welcome. This will be a small gathering that will be outside in the cold, and we do not expect anything large so I would not recommend traveling a long distance for this. If you are local or plan on hitting a bunch of our beautiful parks it may be worth it.

We are also considering setting up a swapmeet when the weather warms up, but with all park activities it will require a lot of planning and working around unpredictable events (things in parks break a lot). A link will be posted below.

I won’t be there for this event but depending how things go the next couple of weeks I may be able to make the swap meet. And Rock Island State Park was already on my list of places to check out so could be 2 birds with one stone. Good luck, hope you have a great turn out.
