1) From: Bob Glasscock
Happy New Year to the Homeroasters. Am going to be in Billings, Montana for
about a week this next month and see quite a few coffee shops listed. Any
recommendations, anybody?

coffee recommendations.

Sarah was driving when we went to Red Lodge for my son's wedding a few years
ago. I, too had checked the coffee shop population in Billings before we
left Westminster. The Nissan Stainless travel mug was still quite warm from
Peet's.
Would Sarah take a detour through Billings to a couple of the coffee shops?
Nooo- she already accused me of having Rigor Mortis by the time we hit Chey
town. We only hit the high spots e/r Billings. Wish I could help, but...
Hooray! 2008 is G_O_N_E ! ! !
Cheers, Mabuhay and Magandang 2009! RayO, aka Opa!

Happy New Year Ray0,
Guess I'll just have to pack my own - trying to guess how to explain the
bodum grinder to inspectors (am flying), and the Aeropress looks a little
suspicious as well.  Then there's the matter of the 2-meter handheld. It all
makes for a very suspicious assortment of paraphernalia. That's why I was
asking about coffee shops in the Tundra. - Bob Glasscock.

Bob,
Happy New Year,
I remember more than once with my Zass and AP in the travel bag,
inspectors opening it all up. It helped to have some fresh roast in
the bag as well. As soon as they cracked the zipper on my bag all they
could think about was coffee. The aroma drifted to all the inspection
stations.  Very little explaining was needed after that. Last thing I
heard them say was "wow" now I need a cup of coffee.
Cheers,
JoeR

9) From: Demian Ebert
Bob- FWIW I fly quite a bit with a whirly blade grinder, hot pot,
thermal mug, and cone. Never once have I had anyone look twice at my
bag because of that stuff. Now a lingering allen wrench is another
story.
Pack your warm socks and have a good trip.

Thanks Demian,
I almost forgot about the insulated mug - probably an absolute necessity in
the tundra. Too bad I can't take the Chemex (won in the tradition last
June), but the AP will do just fine. I'll pack my beans in the thermal
socks. Will try to visit all the listed baristas and report to the group.
