Always looking for equipment
We was out looking in our local surplus store seeing what new goodies they had, not much new stuff from the week before so we decided to head over to goodwill and ended up scoring big time, they had a rack of early 60s G.I issue surplus heavy wool pants (never worn) $12.99ea I purchased 5 of em, goodwill of all places!

Lisa and I was out scanning the second hand stores, Lisa favorite store is Paws and Claws ran by the local animal shelter.

I seen this Coleman Dual Fuel Stove 1994 (2 burner) with Propane conversion kit in excellent condition for 12.95 I snatched this puppy up, when paying for it the cashier ask me to spin the wheel to determine my discount... 75% off the marked price I got the stove for a little over $4 (the stove works beautifully)

We love thrift stores and garage sales - we find the neatest stuff at great prices - that's how we found all our cast iron and many of our canning supplies!

Cast Irons is the only way to cook and unfortunately it's a fading lifestyle. For the folks that don't know much about cast iron cooking, the food is healthier and taste better without a doubt!

RE: Always looking for equipment
I wonder how many are actually hitting the garage/yard sales? If we get to the point where there is a central list of items were looking for it might be cool to relay what we see where even if we don't buy it. Or if we know its wanted to go ahead and grab it and pass it on to the person who wants it. Have seen this kind of thing work in multi-State motorcycle riding enthusiast clubs. Hard to find parts become somewhat less hard to find and the price savings gets passed on as well.


Just kinda thinking out loud.
