I recently purchased An Adventure Camp Cook Set for my expeditions into the wild. I thought I was buying one that a friend suggested to me but oops. I got the wrong one. However, I found that the cook set I bought is superior to the one I meant to buy. So, on the packaging it mentions the thermos that grandpa took fishing. Yada yada... I sure do remember it! It wasn't grandpa's, it was mine. So, I looked it up on this website just to see what all it said about it. Then I got it from the next room and read the bottom of it. History right there! It's imprinted with 04 which is when I bought it to use as a security guard (first job after the war). The time line adds up for sure! I have not used it everyday but I have used it a lot since 2004 and I have never had an issue in thirteen years. It keeps the coffee hot for hours. It's really too heavy for a backpacking trip but for everything else, it's great! Now, I wish I knew how to get my name imprinted on the side of the thing! lol maybe the nephews will inherit it after I'm gone! This thermos is a winner!
