One last roadside coffee

There's nothing that makes ordinary coffee taste better than boiling the water on a fire made of actual wood scavenged from the great outdoors.   It may or may not be a psychological phenomena, like wood fired pizza, and since there doesn't seem to be any peer reviewed scientific research into this, you'll just have to take my word for it.

Sadly it's not terribly polite to fire up the bonfire (or even the Kelly Kettle) in the middle of a park downtown, even if it's a very small town like Miriam Vale, but the Butane stove does a job that's almost comparable.  

There are rumblings of an outbreak "down south" so we boiled the water a bit longer than usual "just in case" and started to consider staying somewhere until the dust settled.
