I feel it's mandatory to have a jar of pickled okra at any NOG. So, I take it for all to enjoy. Pickled okra is more like a dill pickle and less like snot.

Is it crunchy?

No, itsnot...

I'd have more enthusiasm if you had said, "Not at all like snot"

Campfire coffee

Hi,
Use a percolator without the innards. Put coffee grounds directly into the water. Bring to boil. Pour cup of cold water on top. Grounds go to the bottom. Voila, great coffee!

Not that I'm spoiled or anything, but......

I take a 50/50 mix of Starbucks French Roast and light roast Columbian beans and fresh grind them for each pot of coffee. (the only thing I use an inverter for in my Boler is the coffee grinder).

Them I do the Melitta filter thing

Being a coffee addict it is lucky I can afford to be a gourmet about that ONE thing!

Oooooooooo, I like that. Double wall for keeping coffee warm. I have a couple of French presses and had each in the Scamp at one time or another. What I didn't like was that the coffee got cold quickly. Thin glass walls on a French press are not conducive to keeping the coffee hot. I like a large press so I don't have to keep fooling with making coffee over and over. But it's got to start hot/warm.

That stainless press appears large. Is it??

Hi: All...By the time we get Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben, and Betty Crocker in the trailer...there's no room for Mr. Coffee!!!
Sorry General Mills but if there's no room for me... you can't go either!

I do the same thing, except I don't boil the coffee. I bring the water to almost a boil, a fast simmer will do, turn off the heat and then put the coffee into the water. Is like steeping tea. Stir a little if you like, let steep for three to five minutes, then add the cold water, as it will help the grounds settle. That's how to make good "cowboy coffee." Of course the amount of coffee has to be worked out to your individual taste. Marg

Sheesh.
We've been beating around this bush since -let me look at the first post- since August 19th, 2006!
Well, I for one think this has gone on just about long enough- time to separate the corn from the cowpie, folks!
Let's face it- we're talking about a drug-delivery system, and I say:

Whatever Gets the Goods to the Gonads Right this Minute is the way to go!

Why mess around with water and heat and etc.?
Here's a method that is guaranteed to put a High Step in Your Giddyup-
and you don't even have to get off your bunk/cot/sleeping bag to -er- "partake" of it!
Here we go, available at :Nuclear Energy Powder ~ Energy Candy :: ChemicalEvolution


And according to the Highly Respected Website it's available from, and here I directly quote,:
"With 90mg of caffeine per tube you can take in moderation throughout the day for smooth nuclear delivery or
down a whole tube in one shot for a massive nuclear meltdown. "

What could be handier, more lightweight, or more
Superchargedenergyefficient?

A pinch of salt added to "cowboy" coffee mellows it out.
Back in the old days before energy drinks, in college we used to put a pinch of instant coffee' between the cheek and the gum'. It will give you a caffeine kick that will keep you going all night.
