Camp Stoves: Optimus 8R

Just some eye candy of the Optimus 8R.  Battered, grungy, and well-used, much like it’s owner.  I really wanted one of these back in the mid-1980s.  Since I was bumming around and using air travel, I went to a butane cartridge stove instead.  For those interested in the early history of the liquid fuel camping stove, have a look HERE.
