I just got my Petromax Lantern

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

It finally came!!! (I ordered it 2 weeks ago and and was getting impatient). It is the most incredible Y2K investment I've made.

The finish and detail are really nice. I had a little trouble figuring out how to use it as I'm not the most mechanical person.. I called their tech support and they were the sweetest people. Had me running in under a minute. I'm going to get a few more to use as lighting/heating devices since the lantern can heat a small room. I'm trying to figure a way to get my wife to let me hang it up in my den... She's still in Y2K training!

Their web site is www.petromax.com

It sucked up until last week when they put a new one up. The new one is kinda cool and has pictures but the technical support section is still "under construction"

I also found a source for the Katadyn water filters. It's a place called Black Mountain Supply. (I don't have their web site URL handy, but will re-post)

I suspect that Black Mountain Supply is actually Black Mountain Stores who happen to be accessable at the following, non-linked url:


Prices are NOT BAD, (I don't think) and they include shipping. You can see their 800 numbers etc
