YEs this ^^ Pop empty in freezer for an hour then hook up to large tank out in the sun and fill, store safe and chuck when rusty.


Prove they are refilled.


Do they have a special propane unit in the .gov to cover this?


God, and to think our ancestors crossed the country in wagons taking a year or more with little use for law or government. Sad days now.

Seasalt: Regarding those plastic bottom caps from Flywright.....just be aware that the guy seems to have kind-of a fetish for pink caps (notice the pink ball cap and matching bimini), and I'm not saying that the caps he'll send you are pink, but in this shot of his gorgeous Californian from the stern, you can make out a little pink accent hanging there on the side of his BBQ grill....just sayin.

Looks like he's supporting that Susan Komen thing. What did I start when I sent him that "Breton Red" hat?

Very nice work, Mr. H. Hustler!! You have a true talent there!!

I'll start a new thread with other "pink pics" here for your edification and entertainment. Just know that in the Gay Bay, I am not alone!!
