    If I remember right, from the research I did years ago, even the vintage Dietz were stamped in China. You have to go way, way back for American made Dietz

    Okay. Maybe not as far as I thought. It appears production in Hong Kong started in 1956. But it was produced on original tooling and dies.

    Here's a very detailed timeline of the Dietz company

    A buddy and I got to messaging about lanterns, he likes the old railroad style signal lanterns, so I got one of my Chinese oil lanterns down and lit it up. Just because it's been awhile.

    Yeah I have 3 import ones. IIT (Illinois industrial tool) brand I think. They work pretty okay. Only thing I've noticed is the fuel seeps out of the fount over time. Not enough to leave a puddle. It may take a year or so for a full fount to seep out.

    We camp with a Ural Retro motorcycle and sidecar outfit, towing a tiny Trailmaster Aspen Classic tent trailer, (king-size bed). Our lantern and stove are both propane. I use a clamp-on distribution pole.

    We use a 6lb aluminum Worthington upright tank mounted on the trailer tongue using an oxygen tank bracket made for fire trucks. Fits the tank perfectly!

    Here you can see the tank mounted behind the Whynter 45 qt expedition fridge on the tongue. Cumberland Head ferry crossing Lake Champlain.

    Here's how we set it up at camp. I use the red tie-down strap that holds the tank on the tongue to hold the tank to the table when we're not cooking under the canopy.

    And here's our rig in travel mode, (top), and set up, (bottom), with the kitchen under the canopy. This is one of the water sites at Ausable Point state park in Peru NY.

    Yeah, we camp!

    The Ural was a gift from a fellow vet. We were both fighting cancer. I survived, he did not, (may he rest easy).

    The machine has changed our lives. With a few modifications, I can drive it well with my disabilities, and the Mrs loves cruising, (at 50mph), old skool kool. It's the most fun you can have going slow down a country road with your clothes on!

    Both VERY nice! We've been exploring some of the 400 or so free roadside campsites up here in the 'Dacks. Amazing country.

    Sorry to highjack, back to lanterns and stoves!

    Six, thanks for your service. I have a friend in Nebraska that owns a small independent motorcycle shop. About three years ago he became a Ural dealer. They fascinate me, but are out of my price range. Thanks for posting the pics.

    Get a used one. Go to SovietSteeds dot com and jump right into the deep end. You can get decent used urals pretty cheap. Mine's only worth about $6k.

    They're finicky, so be prepared to tinker and do regular maintenance. These are more like lawnmowers & tractors than motorcycles. They're slow, but will do 55mph all day. You drive them like an atv/four wheeler, you don't ride them.

    But ... There is NOTHING like the feeling of putting into the parking lot full of $40k Harley or BMW riders, and have them ALL come scurrying over to check it out. And when you leave, you can kick-start it and watch all the jaws drop, (and the little tears that form in the corners of the old-timer's eyes). Yes, you can electric start it, but why?

    They're amazing that way. It's changed our lives, really. We're no longer in a big rush to get anywhere, partly because you can't on these, but mostly because you 'feel' more going slow. I'm convinced the change and fresh air helped me beat cancer.

    It's travel by immersion.

    You can find in very prestine shape on eBay, more money of,course. No value for me, not a collector. I'm purely user level, I'm all about function in field, so good,grab for my usage. I can say after,just a bit of,time. Its a sturdy rugged gas burner. VERY HOT, Great water boiler, for cooking actual meals may not,be best choice its on or off for most part. So if I'm makin coffee tea or boil bag meals an option on those trips. If,we "glamping" not best unless plan to also,cook over fire.
    Either way its cool, I,like it has its place, hope,I find the case pot and cup at,some,point.
