Kanga, sounds exactly like our trip to Yellowstone.

I agree! How much coffee do you use and how long do you perc it for? For the life of me I can't remember how much coffee I used. Seem to remember percing it for 8 minutes.

Jim,
I usually use about 1 1/2 heaping tablespoons of coffee per cup. Perk for about 10 mins. I like my mud strong.
