A well lit scene!
Ahhh that's a nice way to use vintage camping gear and military surplus. GREAT photos.
Blimey, you must have anti freeze running through your veins...
Over here in the West Coast of Scotland we had -7 a few days ago but nothing like -14! Good to see two lovely lanterns doing their thing and keeping you warm and providing light - marvelous!
Yes, they are good worker's.
Excellent use of classic kit. Nice to see Polish beer has made it's way along too !
Tough men there. -14 degrees and no gloves! I notice other essential areas are kept snug as evidenced by the furry seat cover.
Good stoves and lanterns in a very nice environment!
Are the lanterns kerosene or petrol fueled ? Were there any problems with getting them running ?
I have lit kerosene lantens in -6C and found the methylated spirits (alcohol) a bit hard to light.
Those lanterns runs on kerosene.
No problems with them. They are very well fettled. Radius 119 and a Bialaddin 300x.
Thanks for the information.
Yes, in low temperatures the methylated spirit can be difficult to light.
When camping overnight at Usha Gap one winter when the temperature was already -8 degrees C at 4pm the previous afternoon, a certain stovie member resorted to putting his spirit bottle down his underpants to warm it up - no names to protect the guilty...

Ok, but ill never had a singel problem, with the type of alcohol we are using.
The winter of 1996 it was almost - 26° one night. Just fired up the red spirit and turned Tha stoves and landterns on.
Beautiful scenery @Jan-Ove Lorentzen!
... and I see you enjoy some Polish beverages there!
Yes, that's correct. Some hot flame shots, good light, beer and food.
