My wife hates this too. I replaced the 2.3GPM pump with a 5.7GPM pump and life is much better.

[QUOTE= Not enough room to carry an espresso machine.[/QUOTE]


OH!!!! See now this is where I may have a solution for you Mr. Jeeper. The stove top espresso maker! I have two of them. A small one (about 2 shots) for my backpacking gear and an larger one (about 6 shots) for the RV. This isn't an gimmicky "camping" gizmo, it's actually a REAL espresso maker. I think they are Italian in origin or something. Who knows and who cares? I can make espresso in my RV or out on the trail!

That's a link to a few examples of what I'm talking about. The "big" one in my RV takes up no more room then a large coffee mug. Easy to use, clean, store, etc... No moving parts, filters etc... I bought my BIG one at Ikea ($10) and my small one at Marshals or TJ max or one of those goofy clearance-type stores I think.

Hope is not lost! oh... and I use an immersion blender (stick blender) for the frothy milk sometimes. I kinda like it straight though.

Thanks Brian. Someone here at work has one very similar, I think they use it on a hot plate. We already have the immersion blender so I might have to pick up one of the espresso makers. The hot frothed milk is usually the issue but I suppose we could warm up the milk in the microwave and then use the blender to froth.

Thanks for the recommendation.

We just got home after being gone for the winter. To be honest what I miss is being back on the road. I look at the work around the house that needs to be done, lawn, washing windows, cleaning up after the winter. All the little jobs that a house requires and wish we were back full timing.

The thing I miss most when camping is a full bar. I have a wonderful bar I built down in my basement for entertaining (friends or alone ) with all the ingredients to darn near any libation you could ever want or need. When I'm camping I just carry the Big Five (vodka, bourbon, rum, gin, tequila), some mixers, and a single barrel scotch. It never fails when I go into relax mode at the end of the day in my chair, I'm always craving some concoction with ingredients left at home.
