The turn this thread has taken reminded me of an old watering hole, Thin Richards Road House half way between Nenana and Fairbanks:

first time i saw one of those was in dusseldorf a couple of years ago. the guys on it were having one helluva a good time. didn't see any again until just last weekend when my wife and i went up to boulder for a night out.

not totally sure about the pedaling sidewise thing after a few though. could be interesting.

Favorite camping gear...hmm.
I've been adding things every year since 1995 or so, but I was originally a backpacker. I finally caved to the car camping heavy gear in about 2006 when I bought a huge air mattress.
That was my favorite until I moved out here and froze my butt off with it. Since 2009, I've been adding Colorado inspired car junk that I never knew existed when I lived back East:
Fridge.
Down jacket.
Portable toilet (hanging from trees was no fun)
Awning.
A REAL camping chair instead of $10 wal-mart specials
French press coffee maker.
Decent stove.

There are still some heavy things I like to bring, but rarely do. Cast iron dutch oven for one. I even have the wrought iron "grill/rack" that's designed to be used with those. (see similar photo attached) I've never used mine, but have used my friend's that had one made for me.

This year, I broke down and bought a vintage coleman 3 burner from 1957. Still cleaning it up, (that's grease and sawdust in the photo) but I'm hoping for mad breakfast burritos off this thing!

Mine would have to be a great pair of lined leather gloves
Great at night to keep the chill off when drinking a cold beer
Great in the morning when it's cold as the inside heats up pretty quickly
I go through a pair about every year
Have been using them for about 25 years

When they get old I coat them with snoseal and use them for warmer days on the slopes

Love them

We have the same stove, a Coleman 426. Ours is a 'C' model, so close to the same vintage as yours ('B' was 1954 to 1960 and 'C' 1961-1964). I got mine at a Mountain Miser gear swap years ago from a river guide who was liquidating. It came with a sweet cast iron griddle and a couple of cool old Optimus 8R stoves that he (like I) used for coffee.

Yup, mine's a "B". I was wanting one of these for a long time. I needed a little more real estate, and I dug the early one's having legs and paper towel holders, which my 1995 version doesn't have. This one doesn't look that used actually, but whoever used it last, must have thrown an entire pack of bacon on there and gone crazy. The grease is super thick and nasty...but underneath shines up nicely.

I have a love/hate relationship with my 425, but I paid $5 for it 15 years ago at a garage sale, so I think I've got my money's worth.

The one thing I've learned is that the leather cup/seal in the pump should be pulled and lubricated in an oil bath at least once a year to ensure good pressure. Otherwise - the leaky gas can create quite the fire....
