Topic: heading east (7 msgs / 150 lines)
1) From: Peter Zulkowski
Uneventful trip so far. Tonight we are in Sandwich,TX almost into Oklahoma.
The roads are good and the morning coffee is the greatest.
The Mazzer and the roaster are packed in the Basement and we have been 
using pre ground Harrar horse #30 since June 13th.
At first it seemed bitter, but now it is richer and fuller.
Don't forget.. I never ever taste any blueberry with this stuff.  
I pre ground about three pounds. Very sinful I know, but it is still 
just fine.
Will give another report when I get another WIFI hookup.
Best to all,
PeterZ,
Traveling thru Texas, where they think it is hot when the temp is 93F ;)

Hey Peter!  You should come down here to Houston.  It might only be 93f but
the humidity makes it feel like 103! (ok I might be exaggerating just a
bit... :)  I got back from SLC, Utah a few days ago, and the jeep said it
was mid 90's outside but to me it felt like it was high 70s low 80s!
Wonderful weather, best nights sleep in a long time.  I am originally from
Oklahoma, and being drier up there I really do believe the humidity makes it
feel warmer than it really is.
Glad to hear your trip is going well so far (equating well with
uneventful).  Where are you headed, any particular destination?  I would be
your pre-ground is going to be WAY better than anything you can get on the
road so you did good taking it with you.
As far as the bb in Harar goes, I have had a difficult time getting bb from
lot 19, however I got some from another place and it was exploding with bb.
I jumped in too late to get any of the sm 30 so i cant quote on that.
take care,
james

After driving 8 hrs or so, my brain really is disconnected.
Talk about getting old!
We actually stayed in Shamrock, Texas.. not Sandwich.
The Horse was roasted June 6 and ground on June 7.
It is still better than what is served at the campgrounds we have 
stopped at :)
Next day we traveled through Oklahoma, and went past a wind farm. Giant 
windmills all lined up along I 40 for about 10 MILES near mile marker 90.
Honest, I forget the numbers, but there are over a hundred of them I bet.
Weather has been fine, tonight we are in Terre Haute, IN at a KOA. Not 
much free wireless along the trip, but it is free here :)
Diesel fuel prices have been hovering close to $3.00 a gallon.
So far I still refuse to pay for any coffee other than my own.
Horse is sooo good, even after having been ground nine days ago.
C says we may run out, so I may have to roast some tomorrow or the next day.
Fine with me :)
I am still watching for that Harrar triple pick Tom talked about when 
the #30 ran out.
Can't wait to try that.
Best to all from Terre Haute, Indiana.
PeterZ, enjoying an outside temp of 85F.. cooool!!!

Hi James,
I think there are one or two other 'listers' that live in the Houston area.
Sorry, that city is a bit out of our way.
We are heading for Massachusetts to visit the grand kids, and to stay a 
couple of months in a camp ground in Gloucester, MA.
Will do lots of roasting there.
All I brought with me is Horse # 30.
Harvey gets to MA though :)
Best,
PeterZ

Peter, a colleague was talking a while back about a listing of all the
free WiFi in our state. He's not here right now, but I just Googled
and came up with this one that looks pretty good:http://www.wififreespot.com/Safe travels and thanks for the reports (by the way, what is your
on-the-road roasting method?)
Brian

Hi Brian :)
Thank you for the link :)
I will let you know how it works.
For two or three days we are at my brother-in-law's home in Ohio.
He has DSL but no wireless..
I just happened to bring a wireless router along with me... (camping??)
Well,, we wanted to hook up a printer to share at the campground, you 
know..
WIFI works so easy :)
So we won't have to drag out the USB cables and move them around, and 
keep the laptops tethered to the printer.
Gosh, I guess I have other obsessions besides coffeeeeeee...
