    I like simplicity, failure free. Old school works well. If coffee gets cold, turn knob, push button, wait 54 seconds its again hot. Probably been brewing coffee flawlessly longer than most have been alive. Generator not required.

    Yes I was out almost everyday last week! Put about 50 miles on my Indy so far no issues loving it! I had a minor breakdown (lost a idle wheel) on the two up sled so I’m waiting on a new one for that. Trails were groomed from fort ripley up to Bena as of Saturday. They looked ok. Should be sitting ok after the dumping last night. Planning to get out and rip around some more this week! Went to Winnie on Saturday and ended up bringing the atv for travel but wish I would have brought the sled to cruise around some. 10” ice on Winnie. We had about 8-10” on ground at home before last night. Not sure how much last nights storm brought but heard from a buddy 4-6” fell.

    Thanks. With everyone finding the rocks and packing the base. It should be good after this next snow and cold weather on the trails!

    Real world tips like this is what makes this place nice to still hang around in. Not a coffee drinker, but I'll add this to the "Common sense things that aren't all that common to think about." folder in my my brain.

    You come to the one place in the entire forum where you’re going to get shiat. Then whine about it and talk about intelligence. When there are plenty of places here to find what you seek. Just a Democrat playing the victim card.

    I had done it before when I was younger. Experience had taught me to pay someone this last time. It's a hot dirty dusty job up in the attic. Best suited for a small wiry guy. It doesn't make a difference in deciding when to roof.

    Anyone Else Getting Their Sleds Ready ?

    @leech~~ We got about 9 inches out of the last system and still have maybe 6 of it left. Forecasted 100% chance of new snow tonight 5-8 inches. I saw groomed snowmobile trails around Brainerd last Friday. Of course people have been running the ditches too. The snow has seemed kind of greasy to me this past week though. Kind of weird. Today it turned a little sticky.

    We use a single cup electric brewer. So, yeah, you need a generator but we’re running one most of the time anyway. We have a perk pot too for back up but chose the electric. Gotta have coffee! If you chose an electric, make sure it doesn’t store any water in a port or valve or something. It’ll freeze and break. I tried a Kuerig we didn’t use in our house anymore. Even dumping the reservoir, the valve in the bottom had residual water in it and broke.

    Can't figure out why the Progressives here are so triggered by the thought of able bodied adults actually having to work, look for work, or train part time to get food stamps.... I guess they want to support their local dope dealer who is officially unemployed and in poverty.

    In the heyday of forums the best ones had a lot of participation from guides, outfitters, pro fishermen and other experts. They also seemed to be the 1st to leave as facebook replaced forums as the place to exchange info. It would be great if you could get these people to come back and share their experience and knowledge. The only downside is sometimes posts from these sources can feel more like an infomercial than a discussion.

    Def got a porn soundtrack. The old shack on some property where I deer hunt has an assortment of Stihl calendars from the early 80s with some bikini gals running chainsaws and leaf blowers.

    It's not that hard to do, but it is a dirty, miserable job, it takes 2 people-1 feeding the blower the other in attic. See what the blower and insulation costs--then check the labor costs to have it put in.. Now you have to decide which way to have it done. Transportation of blower and insulation is something else to consider.

    I have done it a few times in the past. It’s not a hard job but you’re going to get plenty dirty and like grainbelt said, if can get hot during the warmer months. You used to get the blower for free after buying a certain number of bags but I’m not sure that’s the case any more. If if you do it be sure to think about your path out before you start. You want to start at the back and work your way to the access and not have to climb over any of the freshly blown insulation. I have heard that some people would go up in the attic with a sharpie and measure how deep you want the insulation to be. Then mark the rafters. I’ve never done it that way. I’ve used a paint stir stick or something similar and just spot checked as I went along to make sure I got it to the desired depth. The last time i helped helped a friend do this we had the blower in the back of a pickup and just backed up right under the access. One person in the box and the other in the attic. The machine we had didn’t have a remote shut off so the person with the hose would just plug it with their hand to signal the guy on the bottom to turn the machine off. If you go go through with it yourself I’d buy one of the white disposable cloth suits to wear and a few dust masks. If you wear contacts I would take them out and wear glasses. And like rundave mentioned, make sure you’ve got the chutes installed so you get airflow from the soffit.

    My mother used to make egg coffee for special occasions. That was 40 years ago so I don't remember how it tasted but a lot of old timers claimed it was the best. If you knew how to do it right the egg and grounds sunk to the bottom when you added a splash of cold water.

    It works just like the use of egg to clarify consomme. The egg coagulates and sinks, taking any small particles with it leaving nice clear coffee. It was from the days before filters or even percolators.

    It just has settled over the years. Otherwise the roof is dry. We also did some remodeling and lost some insulation I suppose doing that. But the last time the cellulose insulation was blown in was 1994. Going up there it has definitely settled over the years Once we close it up in 1994 I never had a reason to go up there again

    I have rented a machine from the save big money store. I ran the hose in the attic while the wife fed the hopper. Was very easy job to do ourselves. But we did it for new construction in a garage attic. Only downside was the machine was super heavy so I would account for that. I dont think the order of that vs your roof matters unless your roof leaks? Are you losing insulation or is it just settling? Do you have soffit baffles installed?

    I think the part smurfy left out is the french press. https://www.thespruceeats.com/egg-coffee-2952648 The only place I have had egg coffee is at some lutheran church's diner at the state fair. It's a pretty decent cup of coffee.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but doesn't the egg cook in the boiling water? I'm picturing coffee with bunch of floating bits of scrambled eggs floating at the top.

    my guess super cheap and a poor grade of coffee!!!!!!!!!! if anyone uses on of them pots papadarv has pictured, try making egg coffee. man thats good stuff. simply put the coffee grounds in a cup, and an egg, no shells, mix good and put in the boiling water. you do need to pay attention, it boils over easy. when you think its done, just add a bit of cold water, this makes everything settle sooner. and enjoy.

    Wheelhouse Coffee

    Been using a percolator for years. It started about 13yrs ago, we rented sleeper shacks on Upper Red and used a percolator to make coffee. It's a blue enameled one, that matches a blue enabled Colman 4 person camping dinner set. We talked about going to an electric coffee maker when I got my ice castle. We decided against it for these reasons. It is simple and works Uses stove burner so no electric/genny won't rev up to high causing more noise. It is easy to heat/use/store/reheat coffee No glass to Break It can make a pretty large pot It has kinda became a tradition over the years

    I use a drip machine that has an insulated carafe. That way it only drags down your generator for the short time it’s brewing and doesn’t have a hot plate bottom to keep your coffee hot. Works great.

    Can't taste as bad as hotel or gas station coffee. I've never minded perked coffee.

    Yeah I would go with a French press or a pour over gadget before a percolator. I'm not really a coffee snob and will drink gas station coffee all day, but percolators make some pretty awful coffee. Don't have a wheelhouse but I just use a tea kettle and a pour over for camping coffee. Then I can use the tea kettle to boil water for other purposes. I assume you have a stove.

    If by a traditional coffee pot you mean an electric drip coffee maker, they make a more consistent and better tasting cup of coffee but you need a generator to run them. Stove top percolators only need a camp stove or heater/cooker to work but it's easier to over cook the coffee and end up with a bitter tasting brew.
