|eryka||Hey, Wind, if I interpreted your post correctly you went very suddenly from a primarily carniverous diet to one that derived a lot of its protein from beans and rice supplemented with meat? Your body requires different enzymes to digest meat v. vegetable protein; if you didn't have time to build those up might you have a bit of a protein deficiency?|

Mournful cry !!!
Best advice I can give anyone is whenever you sell a boat strip it of evrything that's not nailed down. I had a salt grinder that in 20 odd years never clogged and I left the bloody thing on the PB when I sold her. Been through five since, cannot find one that works properly on land let alone on board.
BTW for those of you who can't be bothered with grinding , stick some rice in your salt shaker, For whatever reason the rice stops the salt from clogging up with moisture. No it doesn't work in a grinder. Oh yes, I know someone who tried.
ps - Wind_Magic - Salt is important. You cannot live without it. Sure too much is bad for you but you do need a regular intake. Apart from which it makes vegetables in particular taste better. I'm not a medical person but I believe that cramping also results from low sodium levels.

Thank you all for the incredibly helpful feedback. There were too many good posts in this thread to respond to each one of them individually, I really appreciate all of the responses.

Come to think about it, that was what they were using. The dripolater. However it was very good coffee. I use the metal version of the pres which is also insulated. But you need to use a coarse grind.

This thing you filled the bottom with water, coffee in the middle, top empty. When the water boils you turn the whole thing over and the water drips through the coffee.
For me the Italians perfected the art of coffee making. Spanish got close but no cigar, French lacks grunt, Greek Turkish Lebonese take it from the sublime to the chewable.

|labatt||Going to a nutritionist is cheap. Go to your local YMCA and ask for a reference to a nutrionist - they usually have one on staff. They will examine your current diet and your daily activities and make recommendations on caloric, fat, vitamin and other intakes to maintain your health and lifestyle. My wife saw one and it was pretty impressive as to what they accomplished.|
