My accident was gettin' rear-ended waiting at a stop light. The can't hit me when I'm movin'! Smile Still look around when I am at a stop light - like bein' shell-shocked. I am better than three years ago - not on Methadone for over two years now. Most days I get by with a few aspirin if I have to get in and out of a car more than a couple of times I still use Tylenol 3 and muscle relaxers but I am pretty good at managing pain so sometimes I just tough it out - like this Friday - My wife and a few friends are going out to party a bit. She said I was going so no drugs! That way I can drink a bit. I'll be dancing - probably with three women at least........... God help me! Smile

Blech!!!

No teabags for me - it's loose leaf, teapot & strainer all the way.
BITB meals are pretty good, though mostly based on rice.

Got one of them Bushy...and a spring-loaded diffuser that looks like two perforated teasoons put together face to face.

I believe you get a much nicer cup of tea from loose tea leaves than you do from a teabag.

Cheers, Vince

Hummmm...Bet you could fill that thing with coffee grounds and swish it around in a cup of hot water and come up with a pretty good cup of coffee.

Probably could Bushy...but I much prefer my little stovetop coffeemaker made by Bialetti. It produces near enough to two shots of espresso and is small enough to carry in you pocket if need be. Only thing is does need is a fireproof handle in order to be used on an open fire.

The coffee this little fella makes is magnificent because it uses the pressure of the water boiling in the bottom to push the water up through the ground coffee, extracting all the flavours from the coffee in the basket, then forces the coffee up the small tube in the top reservior...no grounds in your coffee, which is a good thing.

You can see how compact it is by the size of the match box.

Cheers, Vince

WOW!! All this "high tech" stuff. Just for a cup of tea. Heck...All I do is boil water, throw some coffee grounds in and let it steep. Splash some cold water on top to settle the grounds and pour into a cup. Wha-La...Coffee.

My younger brother and I have a good deal, going. An outfitter in northern Québec, who has exclusive fishing, hunting and trapping rights, closes down his operation on October 15 or so and that is when we two set-up headquarter at one of the outfitter’s cabin in order to spend two months there. The reasons for this generous free two months in the bush are the following: 1) We act as caretaker, keeping an eye on the 32 camps located on the 335 square kilometer of property. 2) We trap beavers, wolves, bears martens, fishers, minks, weasels lynx. The beavers in order to manage the beaver population that flood the access roads. One wolf will eat at least two mooses per winter. As for the bears we do not touch them except for the ones who are no longer afraid of humans. This lack of fear of humans is cause by customers who, like to feed them right at the camp door. These bears could eventually become dangerous for unsuspecting customers and their childrens.
We usually have a rotation of breakfast items: 1) Day1-Orange juice, Bacon eggs, sausages, refried potatoes, beans with partridge cubes, toasts and coffee. 2) Day 2- Tomato juice, pancakes with maple syrup, sausages, coffee. 3) Day 3- Juice, cereals with milk, toasts coffee.
For lunch we are on the road (ATV or Pick-up truck) and have the essentials (one beer each) hot soup, a couple sandwiches, cookies and tea.
Back at camp we have for supper, the main meal of the day. Chef’s salad, roast (pork, beef or ham) potatoes, peas or corn and for desert a pie cut in two.
Bed time is at 9 PM and at 8h55 pm the water is boiling in order to have that bed time toddy with rum or such vile liquid. Wake-up time is 5 AM and the routine sets- in for a pleasant two months. We leave when the snow is two to three feet deep. During those two months we could encounter 5 or 6 strangers plus the two visits by my nephew who bring in fresh supplies.
It is with sorrow that we come back to the so-called civilisation after spending two months in the bush in peace, tranquility and doing what we please.
N.B. We are also assistant game wardens with most of the game warden powers while on the outfitter’s land.
