My motivation to have one of those for stovetop or campfire use has some history.

Around 1961 or 1962 there was an ice storm that took out the power and water. Since our home stove was electric, my father built a campfire on the front lawn and melted snow and ice in a big kettle. When the water came to a boil, he threw in a handfull of coffee grounds. The tornado of April 1967 also took out all of the utilities so Dad again brewed snow-water coffee (it SNOWED 3'' in the days after the tornado).

Well sir, drinking that TAR twice in my life made me a believer in having bottled water, propane bottles, and a g ood old fashioned stovetop percolator on the raft.

2 stovetop percolators, 2 different camp stoves, gas stove that still works without power, patio fireplace and charcoal grill, good coffee stash and plenty of bottled water. Yeah I live in the Midwest.
