So I knew this thread existed, and I'm pretty sure I've read most of it, but for some reason, I haven't posted. Thanks to the latest update, I actually looked at the 'trending' section of tapatalk, and rediscovered it!
So a big win/small thing happened on Valentine's day. I got up to make my coffee, and my coffee machine broke. I love my coffee. The GF asked if we needed to make a target run to get another one, and I almost said yes. Instead, I didn't say anything, got a big dopey grin, and ran out to the shed. Dug through some of the camping supplies, and got my campfire percolator. Messed around with my hand grinder, and I have now been enjoying my coffee with no strings attached to the grid. Hand Grinder, fire percolated (I know I've been using the stove, but I don't have to use the stove). Yay for power outage resistant coffee. And not buying a new coffee pot. That thing served me well.
