    Perhaps you just need a newer thermos? Or just a second one...

    I have a no name thermo I picked up at some sale. My coffee stay HOT for like 6 hrs. And stay warmish for another 6.



    If you fill 2 thermos, and drink from one of them. The second one should stay HOT for a good long while until you start drinking from it. So, one thermos for the drive up, the second one for the drive home.

    (How do I know the thermo-capacity of my containers? I sometimes make soup to bring with me for lunch. It usually comes out HOT at lunch time. Many thermo-containers have a 12 hr "keep" time, as long as you don't open it (*even sipping from a small opening hurts the heat retaining capability) )

    Switch to cocaine. Much more expensive but you'll quickly realize it's worth it. Caveat: ration your supply so that you don't have to crash until finally at home with a 6 pack ready at hand. Also remember you're engaging in physical activity. Key bumps. No sharing fat lines in the gondola. Not everyone is cool with it even if it seems like they are.

    You might feel like it goes better with whiskey when skiing but that's a sign you should back off the blow instead of racking up a big bar tab.

    Caveat #2: Use cruise control on the way home. And don't be a hero if it's snowing / slick roads. On snowy rides home the lights behind you can really cause some paranoia so recommended to stay at the speed limit and play a Journey album.

    Saving the coffee money so you have more money for beer? What the heck do you drink, Natty Light on tap?

    I dont believe that exists? And if I'm wrong and it does, it shouldn't.


    EDIT: OMG it DOES exist, but only in 1/2 barrel form (because WTH would put that crap in a kegerator).
