Melitta coffee filter holder that makes one cup at a time -- put it on the mug and pour boiling water through... perfect coffee every time and doesn't require power.

We discovered on our last trip to Florida that the new LED versions of that lamp run forever on 3 'D' cell batteries. They're not quite as bright as the gas ones, but they don't seem to attract insects either.

Given the choice between 'no-see-ums' and reading, I'll take a bug-free glass of wine and a chat with the DW over reading every time.

Simple Rule

My simple rules for boondocking:

Bring everything you got.

Use everything you brought.

Bailing wire? Well, how 'bout re-hanging a damaged and falling off exhaust pipe &r muffler, holding together an awning that had been ripped off its bracket by a gust of wind? That's just two time I've used wire when nothing less would have worked. I always have a place for wire...

In 45 years of backcountry travel I have never neen that desperate and have found a way to get out alive by keeping a cool head.

The most interesting post on this thread was the last and probably most important item every boone docker should have along on the trip. A shovel.

I was camping on a lake in Utah 50 miles from the nearest town back in the 80s. I did not have a cell. It was a quiet beautiful area. No other campers around. Oops, pulled into to unknown soft area and buried my 1989 34 ft Pace Arrow to the chassis. Now what? No shovel. No people, no phone. Luckily I found a piece of board to dig with and used my patio carpet to place under the wheels. About 10 hours later I was on the road again a much wiser and tired camper.
