    Coffee Makers?

    We have 2 SS Double wall French press (s) a Bodum and a GSI. They are both 8 cup and both keep coffee quite hot for at least an hour (although it won't last that long with me around...;))

    Jet Boil Performance

    Well...I was going to ask how cold it was when you used it. They suck in REAL cold temps. The other thing that really seems to slow them down is filling above the "fill line". Other than those my JB for heating water. Anyway, glad yours is fixed!

    Comparing Discovery Sport and Subaru Outback

    yep...figure 20 mpg average. 2 co-workers both report same. The 15 Suby is at 31 mpg ~. It is larger than the Highlander as well...the back seat is comfy (reclines!) for me at 6' and actually does seat 3 across. Just because it's a yota...don't assume it's efficient. Our diesel truck serves a...

    Let's discuss offroad adventure and "Gucci" vehicles

    There was an article here earlier this year, on a couple traveling in some far eastern region in their blue mog. They flew in to this country, drove a few hundred miles, and flew back home.

    What Temps do you use your Flip Pac?

    I still do plenty of tent camping with Scouts and backpacking. The easiest, quickest way for us to get out of town is the TC. It is always loaded with all the right stuff (pots/pans/condiments/clothes, etc, etc.) we just throw some fresh food/beer in and go. I can even toss the Honda genny in if...
