    He's anything but a hunter.
    More like another, Rain Coast Sociopath Fraud. Living off the prevails of his chronic lies, like the rest of them...

    It's an issue, because these sociopath environmentalist's, will dilute the facts.
    To the point you or Joe public, won't know them any more..
    They count on that big time..

When you perk, that's the why behind slow perking. Also why they would put egg shells in coffee, to neutralize the acid. Egg shells are calcium , a base. Coffee is almost as important as beer.

    In the last couple years I’ve discovered coffee good enough to not need cream/sugar. Honestly pressing my own coffee at work and home has changed my life. Probably spend 2X on coffee than whiskey. I’m planning some basic flyin backpack hunts for myself and my late 40s+ relatives. We will shorten our hikes if that’s what it takes to have good coffee. I’m learning that living doesn’t have to be a constant death race. The JetBoil coffee setup sounds interesting. Of course sharing some tools amongst 3 hikers gives some flexibility too.

    A lighter. If you can't start a fire your sol. 50 years going in the bush. The only thing I require is the grounds simmer for 10 minutes. Anything after that to me is irrelevant. Oh and I need sugar. 2 heaping spoons full of sugar in a 500ml/16oz cup.
    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.
    The worst day slinging lead is still better than the best day working.
    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because that’s the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    Holy cow! Don't forget your insulin and needles either!
    The only thing I like as much as trucks, is guns.

    I don't run without coffee. The stove is beside my bag and I light it as soon as I wake up. I really need two cups before I start hunting, so I like to start early.

    I think a french press or stovetop espresso are probably the best options but I am happy with Starbucks Via. I'd try the Jetboil option but I use an MSR stove.

    Nothing wrong with cowboy coffee but Via doesn't leave a mug (or teeth) that require a lot of cleaning.
    Is Justin Competent, or just incompetent?
