Topic: Looking Coffee and possible list members to meet on another holiday trek (9 msgs / 219 lines)
1) From: Jim Gundlach
I will be leaving for another holiday trek tomorrow morning so I  
though I would post my itinerary and see I will be near if any list  
members who might be interested in visiting and if anyone knows of any  
decent coffee handy.
Leg 1:  Wednesday, December 19.  La Place, Alabama to Bartlesville,  
Oklahoma by 7:30 pm.  Almost 800 miles with just me, my two dogs, and  
about 300 pounds of presents in my Toyota Yaris.  This leg will only  
allow two quick stops for bathroom, gas, Butterfinger, and a Coke.  No  
time to get any coffee or visit anyone.  I'll drop off about 40 pounds  
of presents and pick up other presents of an unknown weight.
Leg 2:  Thursday December 20.  Bartlesville, Oklahoma to Sioux Falls,  
South Dakota.  About 550 miles with just me, my two dogs and around  
300 pounds of presents. I will head up US 75 to just across the Kansas/ 
Nebraska state line and jog over to I-29 go up to Sioux City, Iowa and  
drop off about 150 pounds of presents before heading on up to Sioux  
Falls.  No real deadline so I can afford some time to try any good  
coffee anyone knows about along that route.  I will be in Sioux Falls  
all day Friday with plenty of free time to try any recommended coffee  
or visit with anyone in the area.  I plan to heat gun roast about two  
pounds of coffee at some point during the day.
Leg 3:  Saturday December 22.  Sioux Falls to a cabin in the hills  
just west of Rapid City, about 360 miles, 348 of it on I-90,  with me,  
my wife, nine year-old granddaughter, the two dogs, no presents and  
limited luggage in the Yaris.  We will be at the cabin until December  
28 so there will be time to try any recommended coffee and visit  
anyone in the neighborhood who might be interested.  I might roast a  
pound or so of another coffee while there as well.
Leg 4:  Friday December 28.  Reverse of Leg three.
Leg 5:  Saturday December 29.  Reverse of Leg 2, Sioux Falls to  
Bartlesville,  but with wife, granddaughter, and the two dogs still in  
the Yaris.  I'll have two days here and should be able to run down to  
Tulsa to try coffee or visit.
Leg 6:  Tuesday, January 1:  Back up to Sioux Falls with same load.
Leg 7:  Wednesday January 2 and January 3.  As yet unplanned route of  
about 1200 miles from Sioux Falls to La Place, Alabama with me, my  
wife, the two dogs and assorted baggage.

Jim,
Does your family exchange horse feed for Christmas presents?

Nope,
     the heavy ones this year are a couple sets of golf clubs with bag  
and all.  Then there books and books and books.  Also a Champion  
Juicer that I am not supposed to know about.

Ooo - a Champion! You are SO lucky.
I found a near perfect one at a yard sale when I lived in Tucson for a mere
$20. Then I got rid of it when I moved (needed to lighten the load for the
trek
across the county). I regretted that decision since then.
The Champion makes the BEST frozen fruit 'ice cream'. Freeze bananas &
other fruits, run through without the screen - oh man, it is SO good...

This is a Christmas present after dropping hints that I would like to  
expand into home roasted and processed chocolate.  Obviously she  
picked up on the hints after three or four mentions of a "chocolate  
alchemy site".  I know about it because all the paypal purchase  
notifications get sent to one of my email accounts.  And a few days  
later a big box that weighed about thirty pounds showed up.  It is now  
wrapped and to me from Carol and I get to haul it about 3,000 miles  
and pretend to be surprised when I open it.

Sounds great to me! Yeah, when I first saw the site and read about
processing one's own chocolate -wanted to give myself a few smacks on my
forehead..
Be sure to give us some photos after you are 'surprised.'
