Looks like a great efficient setup. I was wondering if the material on the ledge just above the red alligator battery clip was some sort of seasoning spice?:)


Yes. It's a rare desert spice that can only be harvested by driving down unpaved roads.

And it's combined with a tree-based spice native to Georgia.


They may be rare in the desert but my gutters have no problem finding them.

We're out of the desert, now!

There was public WiFi as we passed through Stovepipe Wells, where we were able to spend a few minutes catching up.

And we had a little bit of AT&T in Furnace Creek, where I was able to use a FreedomPop phone to catch up, again.

The other 90% of the time we had nothing.

I cook almost every meal with a pressure cooker. I used stovetop pressure cookers for decades and then added an electric pressure cooker to the mix.

We van camp and are all electric, now. We have a mini Keurig (although sometimes we take a regular 12 cup coffee maker) and we have an Instant Pot.

That's it. That's our camping kitchen-- and there's nothing I can't make with an Instant Pot.

Here we are cooking breakfast in Death Valley, yesterday:


Not quite like this...

Wow, $35 for the 8qt electric pressure cooker!

These are a Best Buy brand, and user feedback can be easily researched by searching for the same item on Best Buy's site. We have a similar unit already, so I did not do so-- but when I've looked before, similar Insignia models have gotten positive reviews..

Great deal! For new purchases I'm not buying teflon . With our 3'rd great grandchild about to arrive, I'm thinking about my purchases in terms of passing better non toxic stuff on eventually.
