Maybe you could try Fleet Farm they sell them in 4 packs for about 8 bucks. The way they are displayed you could load the cart full. Or go with a bigger tank. Hope this helps.

I use a 5# tank for my heater and grill, and carry 2 1#ers for my lantern, single mantle lantern. I wish I had gone with an 11# pancake tank though

I bought a case (24?) of them at Menards this summer for $2 per can. Great deal. I wish I would have bought more. I know you can get them there in 24 can cases. Good luck.

I fill my own with a 20lb cylinder. get the adaptor from a fleet store.

the 20 lb cylinder should be somewhat full and warm.

put the green cannisters in the freezer for 20 minutes, tip your 20lb upside down with the adapter. take out the little one connect it and turn on your 20lber for about 20 seconds. turn off, and unscrew your little canister.

works great.

South Metro, that's a lot of work and depending on price, may not be cost effective. If you go through that many of them, I'd get a larger tank to run your stuff off of.

I would agree and just run your appliances off a big tank. So much cheaper.

I would try Fleet Farm first and or maybe call the stores and see if they can sell them to you in bulk.

It is not illegal to refill and use the little 1# tanks. But it is illegal to transport a refilled disposable 1# tanks according to the (Contact Us Please).

I was going to buy the adapter and refill tanks but have decided that it is not worth getting fined.

i too have refilled the 1 pounders, but not since one got too full and nearly burnt down my portable with me in it. the bottle developed too much pressure after awhile from warming up and my small sunflower became a blow torch. shocked.gif no good!

South Metro. Buy yourself an adaptor and get a 20 pound tank. You can then just exchange the empty for a full one every time you need a new fill up. I pay from $15:00 to $20 00 for a 20 pound tank each time I need a new one and I go though about 2 tanks a year with my Mr. Heater. The adaptor will cost you about $20.00 at Fleet Farm.

There are cheaper ways to go but those 1# canisters sure are nice, easy and LIGHT. Except for my lantern, I can use either 1# canisters or 20#. Most of the time I'll use a 1# er and will usually get me thru my 2-4 hrs of fishing; always have a couple more in the fish trap just in case

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
