I decided today was a good day to give #coffeeoutside another try and so gathered up my gear, bundled up against the cold, and trundled off on my bike. And this time everything worked like a charm. At 25 degrees outside it does take a little longer to get water to boil with an isobutane stove, but it’s not a big deal.
The pot in the picture is a combo pot/mug thing that seemed like a good idea when I saw it in the store, but I’ve just never dug it in use. I’d never used it with my pocket rocket stove, so I decided to give it a whirl today, and yeah, it’s too skinny for the stove, a bit wobbly, and I didn’t dig it. It’s back to an actual pot and a double walled tumbler to drink out of. The stove’s an MSR Pocket Rocket which I do highly recommend.
As always the biking was wonderful and it was nice to have a warm up at the mid point in the ride even if it wasn’t that cold and I wasn’t going very far today.
