    Ditto on the coffee here, we're stovetop percolator and thermos people - saves on electric. Stainless steel percolator, the cheap tin ones make the coffee taste, well, "tinny". We don't do the frapa-mocha-latte-kruerig-pressed stuff, the cheapest folgers brand and perked for 12 minutes works for us. This is about as low as I like to get, the snow cancelled our shopping trip this weekend.



    In a pinch coffee bags will work, or even tea for that matter, but freeze-dried instant coffee is the very, very, very last resort.

    Good Lord, no wonder your insides didn't like it!

    I think instant coffee would be a good barter item, though.

    You are right, did it to wake up, writing computer programs in ASCII is a bitch when you are sleepy.

    I was working 14-16 hours a day, seven days a week,

    was getting stuff out the door for gulf war I, and I had a hard time getting up in the mornings.

    Stuff was so urgent they sent a helicopter to pick up an order that went right to Westover AFB, then flown directly to FT. Bragg.

    All night vision stuff.

    Instant solidifies also, just like the coffee mate did.

    I have jars of Folger's bricks.

    I wonder if you repackaged it with silica gel packs and vacuum sealed it if it would keep it good. I might experiment on the west side of the mountains. Central Washington is so dry (at our place the average annual precipitation is around 12 inches, about the same as Tucson, AZ) that cereal in open boxes will stay fresh for a year or more.

    Agreed.

    I've got some really old (but unopened) instant coffee somewhere in the back of the pantry, will open it up for a consistency / taste test, might be interesting.

    The jars I have were never opened stored in zero light condition and frozen 5 months out of the year.

    Dumped into a dehydrator to remove any latent moisture might help out.

    I don't remember what I did with them, but if still there, I will open and take pictures and post.

    Met up with a good friend the other night and exchanged Christmas gifts. We had to wait 'cuz he works over in the sandbox and is now home for R&R. He gave me a box of Sailor Boy hardtack/crackers, a challenge coin, the book Blackout Wars, and a Leatherman Rail.

    Prepping is not a destination... it is a journey.

    Told my boss I need a day off next week to maintain my mental sanity.
    Day off was granted.
