    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!

    Tough men there. -14 degrees and no gloves! I notice other essential areas are kept snug as evidenced by the furry seat cover.

    Great pictures.

    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.

    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... :lol:

    Edit: here's the write-up of the weekend - and 'Underpants Boy' identifies himself... :D/

    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.
