Trip Planning

We are working on plans for our summer adventure, making lists and buying new hiking boots.

I, however, have my priorities.

One needs coffee for breakfast, so I am eyeing this cunning thermal stainless-steel French press:

And one needs wine with dinner, so I impulse bought one of these plastic wine glasses with an unscrewable stem:

Of course, we're going to Utah, where caffeine and alcohol are verboten, so I'm not sure how practical either of these will turn out to be.

They do actually sell both coffee and wine in Utah, but not everywhere. Certainly not in the wilderness I'd pack in the good coffee, and at least scope wine shops in Salt Lake before departure. If it's lookin' bad, you might want to pack some of that, too. ;)

Politica just came back from a research trip in Utah, and discovered coffee so fine she is planning on ordering beans from that company (it's in SLC). So you might be surprised.

It's definitely hit or miss. Very hard to find a place to drink where your child can also be with you--and to be honest, I don't consider wine with dinner to be "drinking."

I never leave home w/o a box of wine these days--and I'm not even heading to Utah! Whereas a few years back, I would have poo-pooed boxed wine, the stuff is pretty good these days, and it stuffs into a bag very nicely.

We just got a stainless steel French Press for our recent road trip, and it was a blessing--even though the press allowed grounds to float up into the liquid. I became a pro at spitting a mouthful of grounds into the firepit.
