View Full Version : Scorpion -- My first stove

I found this photo, its not mine. But it is of a Scorpion stove, which is the first backpacking stove I ever owned. Bought it at the Blue Ridge Mountain Sports location on Military Highway, in Norfolk, Virginia for my first backpacking trip in 1984. It ran on 8oz butane canisters like the one pictured.

I wish I knew what happened to mine. It was with all the family camping gear, but I suppose it has been long misplaced. Its an old piece of gear that I would use again.
