Suggestions for eliminating 1lb'rs

Suggestions for eliminating 1 lb'rs

I'm kinda branching from the refilling 1 lb'rs topic, I didn't want to get to far off topic in there.

I usually have my 5 lb propane tank running my sunflower and leave my 20lb in the truck J.I.C., then load up on the 1 lb tanks for my Colman lantern. ive heard talk about the lantern trees and not real sure how they work/ or how well. Are there any other options other than multiple LED lights/lanterns? NOTE: for some dumb reason the LED lights give me a horrible headache tired

Thanks in advance!!

Have you thought about maybe hooking the LED lights up to a dimmer? Maybe they wont give you a head ach if they arent as bright.

The trees work really well as long as you have enough room for them. You need the stable base of a 20lb tank to support both a sunflower and lantern not to mention enough gas. The 11lb pancake might work olso. Very stable. It does limit your ability to take the lantern with you if you need it. As long as you have a headlamp though, this might not be a problem.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
