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.

Ciao George! Where do you find these nice items?
I always keep my eyes open when I travel and I like to visit the flea markets. I occasionally find a good deal on Ebay but that is rare.
