Doesn't have everyone on it, as he admits, but pretty comprehensive.

Be sure and check out the links. One guy, Monte Dodge, has a huge collection of old Coleman stoves and some miscellaneous gear.

I think someone mentioned this website here on Trailspace a couple of years ago. I have looked at from time to time. There are some strange errors in the timeline and some inconsistencies where he has someone introducing some item to the commercial market several years before that person is noted as inventing it. Still, it has a lot of good information. He does ask for corrections and updates. I suggest having a good reference and documentation before you send him a correction note (just like with Wikipedia).
