WAR ON ICE

 

Two days after "THE HIT" I had lunch with Ed VanImp. It was wonderful!

Ed explained to  me the degree of contempt Canadians had for the Russians. At that time Olympic participants were amatuers. The Russian Red Army hockey team were professionals posing as amatuers. "Our boys goal from the time they are wee lads is to win an Olympic Gold metal then they go to the Olympics where our boys face their men." Ed was not at all fond of the Russian Hockey team.

 

Little Lehigh Fly Fisher John(Boss Hawg) Snisak saved his fly tying debris for his nesting box.

 

He contended his neighborhood bird nests were the most colorful in the county

Coffee, Camp Rohrbach Style

 

II went to the store in Forks, Washington to replenish my coffee supply.

 

I got to Camp Rohrbach at Yellowstone Park, went to make coffee and was horrified to find I had bought percolator packs

I remembered John Gierach’s campfire coffee and improvised.

I filled the the old coffee pot with water and two perk packs and let it boil for seven minutes

It was delicious!

 

One of the minor annoyances of washing dishes at Camp Rohrbach is coffee grounds.

They seem to get into everything.


The basket is always bending and the little glass knob is always disappearing

Perk Packs fit in the back pack compactly with no spillage

No more spilled coffee grounds in the camp pantry.

No more used grounds in the dishwater

No more losing the infernal glass knob

No more bent coffee basket and stems

Just excellent coffee with no mess

One more little thing to make life in the Camp Rohrbach easier. CAMP ROHRBACH CAMPFIRE COFFEE
