Hi all - I didn't see a 'new members' or 'welcome' forum, so thought I'd just post here. I had no interest in camp stoves until I found a Coleman 400B Peak1 stove (in the box) at a thrift shop for $2.99 in May. This was shortly after a 4 day desert backpacking trip I took in March, during which I wished I'd brought a stove, but didn't have one. Since buying that 400b (1989 manufacture) I have found & bought a 425F dual burner for $5 ('80), a 414 (1989, in the box still) for $30, a BRAND NEW never used 400A ('87, in the box) for $15, and today a 425E dual burner ('78) and a 526 single burner ('79) for $20 each. I joined because I kept running across this site every time I'd look up information on a new stove. So what causes this addiction - surely one or two stoves should be enough??
