I appreciate that this little stove didn't exactly change the world, but it certainly rocked mine. I struggled a little with where exactly to put this post, but eventually settled here. There is a vague nod to it being a reference thread I'd like to think. OK, so to begin with, this is my original, bought brand new as a boy with my pocket money (44 years ago) I have been camping; solo camping in fact since the of 11 when I got my first tent from CCC in Sheffield as a birthday present. I still have the tent in fact but it's somewhat, well, shagged really. Backpacking around the Lakes, this little stove heated many a tin of soup, beans and noodles. It's all there, completely genuine and still working. As you can see, I also have a set of the longer legs that came from a Bluet lantern. I know people have tried to make these, but this is a genuine set. I have quite a few of the larger pierce-able cartridges on the shelf so we're good to go. I've a decent stack of full GT 106 canisters to see me through the Apocalypse. Now this may be contentious, as the next stove is a later generation that works off the 270 resealable gas. Purists may say it's not really a Globetrotter as the gas won't fit in the pans. I won't argue. It's in unused condition and complete. There was a version after this one, I believe that had built in ignition. I haven't had this since I was a boy of course. I bought it some years ago when I happened across it one day. At £10 it was too good to pass up. Whilst this is a stove forum, I couldn't miss out the Globetrotter lantern that makes up the set. It's a neat little thing complete with carry case. I have tried repeatedly to clean the glass, but I just cannot get those marks off with anything. And here it is all together. I've a silly amount of stoves and lanterns, but each one has a special place in my heart, but none more so than the little GT.
