Topic: On-the-road Brewing Threads (3 msgs / 67 lines)
1) From: Bob Hazen
I confess....  I haven't paid much attention to the threads on brewing Our Favorite Beverage while traveling.  I resolve to mend my ways.
I just returned from a 2 week road trip.  Before the trip I thought I'd just suffer with what I could find along the way.  (Foolish me)  I didn't want to hassle with the paraphernalia for grinding and brewing on the road.  Man, oh man, was that a mistake.   There is really some rotten "coffee" out there.  I take it back, "coffee" even with quotes is too complimentary for what I found.  Perhaps gray water would be a better term - along with all its associated connotations.  Never did I think I'd be so glad to find a *$.  Maybe that's why some folks think *$ is so good.  Compared to the rest of it, it is better.  Don't flame me now, I'm confessing my sins....  :-)  
Next trip, I'll bring along the claptrap to brew Our Favorite Beverage.  If anything, this has been an eye opener.  I have become so accustomed to having good coffee.  The last two weeks have put things back in perspective.
This morning I'm drinking Cameroon Caplami Java, roasted in my Behmor to FC, rested perhaps 20 seconds.  Ahhhhh.....  I'm looking forward to a few days rest on it, if it lasts that long.
It's good to be back!

Bob, you hit the nail on the head... *$ is so much better than so many other
cups.  which is so sad.  Man, fresh roasted quality coffee from SM is
impossible to beat...  mmmmmm...

Got up in Madison this morning, looking forward to the free DIY  
waffles in the motel lobby.....only to find the waffle irons broken.  
So made myself some instant oatmeal and brewed up an AP of the last of  
my PNG Kimel Plantation while I watched the Weather Channel with  
trepidation. (Was supposed to play a free outdoor concert in a state  
park up there Fri. night--but the ranger had temporarily closed the  
park because of hail warnings, storms and high winds, my car wasn't  
fixed by noon and my singing partner had a chest cold.  By 2 pm the  
car was ready and the rain in Madison had stopped, but the music  
pavilion was still too wet to safely plug in P.A. and both of the  
available routes to Madison were under tornado and hail warnings.   
Whichever way I'd have gone, I'd have encountered a twister either in  
Racine or Belvidere, and just outran one yesterday outside Stoughton-- 
which produced baseball-sized hail and destroyed a just-rebuilt  
church).  Finished the last of my PNG just as I got the call that they  
cleared out the park's garage/machine shed for us to play our concert  
in conjunction with the park's rededication ceremonies. Moved our  
equipment in there during a driving downpour--amazingly, there was a  
full house.  Drove back home late this aft. under calm and clear  
skies. Weird, considering the tornadoes that hit the S. suburbs of  
Chicago last night (sparing us, since we're up in the city along the  
lake).
