Latte in a Dump Station?

Yes, that's right. Today I had a Latte in a Dump Station. Now go ahead and let that thought settle for a moment.

Went streamin' with some friends: 4 adults (sort of) and 5 kids between us. On the way out of Lincoln Lake Campground, this afternoon, I pulled into the dump station. At the same time, my good friend decided to turn on the generator and brew some coffee in that new espresso machine I just added to the 345.

Low and behold, I finished the "business at hand" and walked back onboard where I was greated with a steaming hot Latte. (Yes, I washed my hands first).

This was a personal first and that was some darn good coffee.

BTW - We all had a blast and now they want an Airstream. Nothing else will do. I told them I'd install the espresso machine when they bought a trailer.

Where are you in the pic, Bruno? I expect to be studying in Montpellier this January & then traversing the Cathar castles for 2 weeks ...

Hope you & your repaired trailer are doing great!

Welcome in FRANCE, january is not the best season but Montpellier is realy a nice and friendly town . I think you'll live good times there and that 'll be a great souvenir in your life.

I spent a lot of time in Montpellier back in my IBM days while transferring a new machine to be manufactured in France. Great town and not far from the shore of the Med. I was usually alone on these trips, and my favorite way to kill an evening was to drive my rental car to the shore of the Med for some great seafood and a walk on the beach.
