Powell's trip persevered through extreme hardships, long hours of physical toil, never knowing what lay ahead, risking there lives, often on the brink of starvation. And what was one deciding factor that saw them through?
" We still have plenty of coffee"

Take a lesson from the man himself, don't risk compromising the expedition by compromising on coffee.

Just read on line that people who drink 3 or more cups of coffee are 40% less likely to experience liver problems from drinking too much alcohol on the river. It is a win win situation.
Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of life on or off the river. is offline   Reply With Quote

That's pretty cool bighorn.
To add to the benefits of drinking coffee, a Dr. told me people who drink a cup of coffee a day, have a decreased rate of Diabetes and colon cancer. Sounds like as long as your not driving your blood pressure to high, or drinking enough to damage your stomach, then it really may do a lot of good.

You just have to realize there are people who like coffee and people who REAlLY LIKE COFFEE... I drink at least 6 cups(big cups) everyday that's a Lot of work making single cups... Cowboy coffee is the only way to go.. Rule number 4 Never split beer with someone who doesn't drink coffee.
Rule 1 never waste a boner
2 never trust a fart
3 always rig to flip
Pool and a pond... Pond be good for you.

I used the Starbucks VIA packets a couple weeks ago when backpacking in the Grand Canyon and I was impressed. Good flavor, very quick and easy to make and the grounds dissolved grit.
