Got a free “Ted Williams”

#1

Post by Coast_to_Coast »

I changed the title. I unrolled the tent last night and noticed the name badge. Might be as close to a “Ted Williams” lantern as I come! Did Coleman make these too? The ad said it is 9x12 with a side room. I have not set it up yet myself. The pictures are from the ad. Not sure if this is going to be my thing or not. I haven’t used this kind of equipment since I was in Scouts. I asked the ole do you have any lanterns question and the guy came up with these. I tried to walk away, but I couldn’t for $20. Probably should have though. Last things I need really. I got excited when I saw the red knob on the H. Thought it might be my bday lantern, but is missed by two months.

That's awesome!!! I love old canvas tents! I've forced myself to just keep two. One large, one small. That one looks like it's in great condition!

And for 20, all day on the lanterns. Cheap globes

Coleman tent

There's something about Canvas, that odor when the sun starts baking on it, really brings back those old school camping memories. A little OFF! mosquito repellent mixed with woodsmoke, and you're all set.
Madness takes its toll. Please have exact change ready...
