I do some cooking in the Dutch oven- baking bread, rolls, scones, casseroles, etc. Right now fixing crab mac and cheese. I catch up on reading as that’s the only time I read mostly nowadays (listen to audio in the car.) take the dogs for walks.

AeroPress coffee is not espresso. I use one most of the time at home and always on the road. You get a heavy extraction and add hot water to how you prefer the taste which varies from one been variety to another.

One key to making a better cup of coffee, regardless of the extraction method, is to freshly grind beans, and the fresher the bean roast the better.

Bob we also have the Keurig at home . To save lots of money Linda uses Yuban and I use Folgers . Sometimes like when we were in Idaho bought speciality coffee . Bought coffee solo adapter to use any ground coffee in the Keurig . If we have electrical have a little coffee maker the kids got us . Otherwise Linda uses Starbucks instant coffee from Costco and I use Folgers instant . Basically I cup to avoid a headache . Pat

Combine the headset with Morse code and dispense with the clicking of a keyboard! The original "digital" mode.

My hobbies include, amateur astronomy, bicycling, reading, sampling interesting craft beers... I used to be a fairly serious amateur photographer, but I've drifted away from that, now I just take photos mostly with my cellphone to document things, or pretty scenery.

Hi Bob,
My best suggestion is to pack good raingear and adequate clothing to stay warm underneath. Bad weather … what's that? Get outside and explore what other lunatics you can find out there. Pretty much guarantee that they will be interesting.

I find that the bigger the RV the less time the owners spend outside their RV. So many times an out of state $100,000. RV will pull into camp and no one ever gets out …. three days or more days later, they up and leave. WHAT have they been doing that whole time? I appoint you Bob, Ambassador At Large to find out and report back to us.

Tom

Thought of another one

Hello All,

Add this to my earlier list, learn a foreign language. Easy to buy kits to do this in about any language.

Enjoy the journey,

Steve

We’ve gotten into walking/hiking this last year. We do the 10,000 steps deal daily and this activity lends itself very well to rv parks, campground locations and touring.
You also need very lil of anything to get started, just good pair of sneakers or hiking boots and off you go. We use the phone to track the steps.
