Easiest, simplest, greatest coffee on and off the river: aeropress. Light to pack and indestructable. Look it up on google.

Does your perc have a handle? All you need to do is put grounds in with water, boil, steep, when it's done- take it by the handle and swing it back and forth several times. The grounds will settle to the bottom- it works way better than any other method I've ever seen- and I've seen most of the ones listed here.

Thank you al for your assistance. One of you had it right, I just ordered a box of Large Drawstrng refillable tea bags from Mountain Herbs that was discussed previously. I was not talking about the single serving bags from Folgers or whoever that are packed in foil.

I bought the bags to simplify coffee grounds cleanup as opposed to using th percolator which is a little messy and takes forever, or making cowboy coffee which isa pain to clean up.

Thanks again,

Maybe Starbucks can start making VIA in bulk? That stuff is amazing for short trips for only a few people.

"Cowboy coffee" is crap. Hell, boiled coffee period is crap. If you insist upon boiling the stuff, you might as well use Folgers or some other equivalent drek and save your money.
Uh, I'm just gonna go find a cash machine.

I prefer my Swissgold single cup brewer. I use it at home, work, and in the outdoors. I don't even have an alternative way of making my coffee. You can really baby that single cup of coffee to perfection with it.

I just watched the Aeropress video and it looks pretty slick. I might have to get myself one of those! I like the idea of having a mug of coffee and able to clean up the mess before I'm done with my beverage. It is annoying to deal with the grounds in a press mug after the kitchen and garbage have been packed away.

What toilet paper should I use?

All you D-bags out there. I am going off the sharing nature of the buzz and am wondering what toilet paper should i use to wipe my arse with? Any suggestions? I am also wondering if anyone out there might have an alternative arse wiping technique they'd like to share. Especially if you use it while on westwater. Thanks in advance....

Didn't realize kayakers ever wiped. I would suggest you try a cholla cactus. And I guess you don't have a use for coffee what with your all-day adrenaline load.

Us expedition rafters love our morning caff and ways to avoid rinsing grounds into the river is worth discussing.

I guess there are good Bubbas and bad Bubbas Check the lid before you buy--the four I have used were fine.
