There are lots of types of lanterns out there, but this post is about camping lanterns. A camping lantern is portable light source used for illuminating dark campgrounds. You’ll find them mostly used by campers or by old farmers investigating spooky noises at night. I have a few lanterns that I’ve accumulated over the years. I have a Coleman one that runs on propane. I have another one that uses batteries. And I have another one that is solar powered (it only works in the day time though). A camping lantern is pretty useful for camping. After all, that’s what it’s for. It spreads the light more than a flashlight so it’s better for playing cards, cooking, or just providing comfort at the campsite. Don’t believe me? Ask my roommate. He went camping a few days ago and forgot to take a lantern. He said it sucked. He said he wish he had a lantern. He also forgot to take a flashlight. He had to sit in the dark and think about how nice it would be to have a lantern. He had to rely on the firelight and moonlight like a hobo. He learned his lesson. The next time he goes camping, he’s going to bring a lantern.
