The other day you mentioned Honey and her roof. I sure hope you get her sealed up good and tight in time for the GC! Really looking forward to meeting you two and seeing Honey. They were and are cool!

When I have to use any other water I clean with vinegar to remove scale.
I know if you use D.water only for your coffee maker your GF will have a much better tasting coffee.... and tea (s) too!!

Just sayin' ( BTW, D water is the green ray of the rainbow! )

But then you have to take a mineral supplement because our bodies need minerals too and if ya drink only distilled water, ya don't get those.

Oh ponder here... do you suppose that is where the minerals in the mineral supplements come from? Now, that would be frugal! ......Mmmm, don't mind me, I am still on my first cuppa and usually don't make a bit of sense before 2 cups.

Soon as we get a string of more than 2-3 days above 50 we'll be out working on her....

A very belated Happy Birthday - you old fart! Can you imagine! You passed the half century mark 9 years ago. Wow!

Now, who is the oldest on here.

I was born in July '41.

Poor Lily, being raised by a monkey would sniff other dogs butts, but didn't understand she was supposed to let them sniff hers in return. According to Cesar Milan, that's dog etiquette. I used to have to hold her still until she caught on. She gets it now.
Maybe she could teach some of us proper etiquette. (See I didn't just pick on Mike.)

I don't believe distilled water is supposed to be used in that capacity. Use "drinking" water from the bottle. Use distilled vinegar for the cleaning process.
===================

Steve, when you are as old as I am you will have "been there, done that," so you may eventually get McGyver qualities. The real trick is knowing when NOT to use them.

Now y'all, real coffee is when you don't have any other source other than the coffee, a steel helmet, brook water, and the ability to build a fire. Pour water in helmet, place ground coffee in water, place helmet carefully on fire, bring to a boil, taek helmet off fire and let seep for about 15 minutes. Pour, or scoop carefully from helmet. C-Ration cans made good cups.

Ah! The good ol' campin' days.

Not guilty of being the oldest, but I'm pushing on hard close behind y'all. I was born in Dec. '42.

As for helmet coffee, my dad's was similar: a big "granite" pot on the stove, add ground coffee and let steep. He added an eggshell to help settle the grounds to the bottom.

I tried it once and it was so terrible I never did it again.

Cheers, and may your coffee never burn.
Sue

Wayne - 2 questions. 1 - how was that sipping Rum. And 2 - are you going to tell us how you came to invent the Swiss Army Knife?

1. Still sipping, can't you tell.

2. I started with Swiss Cheese and the idea came to me. It was difficult taking the holes out of the blades.

A Different Thought

Good Morning My Friends and Fellow Mutants,

I have finished my morning coffee all three cups of Columbian, and not those little cups where ya hold out your pinkie finger either.

Yesterday as I was surfing through the channels of the electrical device in the Magic Carpet I came upon a channel that had a show called Extreme RV's. Now before Marcia and I found our Magic Carpet I used to watch this show quite often dreaming of what it was just exactly what we would end up with or find. The MH's shown were of the grandest sort and always way out of my humble budget. The coaches shown yesterday were of the same vein, mobile monsters with more gadgets than you could shake a stick at.

Now that we have found our home on wheels I am finding that this program doesnt hold the same appeal that it once did. I have all that I need, and what I dont have I really dont miss. And to top it all off there will come a point in time when all of those gadgets are going to fail and they will have to be repaired. I am now beginning to think that the simple pleasures of life are more appealing than the latest and greatest gadgets that can be incorporated into our rainbow rider. And who would have thought that there was a contingent of people called mutants that would embrace those very same principles.

With that said I sure am thankful for this illustrious mutated group of friends. You may now carry on with your scheduled activities.

Oh and by the way I came into being in early 57 is that ok ?

Cheers !!!

I've heard that before... several times. Glendale, AZ water is nasty, but mine has a nice mellow taste with no chlorine taste or smell.

Ok, the egg shell works to get the grinds to bottom so here is how you do it when there is no shells around. Place grinds in a clean sock and place in pot. Regardless of how clean it's always best if you use your own sock and make it strong coffee.

Been there, done that!

Sorry to hear about this Judy. I don't know how far you have to go, but we probably would take our Jeep and stay in Motels. Avoid any hassle with freezing cold and snow/ice with our MH. It's time to be with family now.
