Saturday Sippings - Vol 4

Yup, it’s Saturday again and I’m sure a lot of you are patiently waiting for that final episode of Game of Thrones. In the meantime try not to bite all your nails off in anticipation and instead - sip on this.

Unless you live under a rock you probably already heard about the “Starbucks” coffee cup that was mistakenly left on set during the filming of the HBO hit Game of Thrones. Hello Quality Control!?

 

Many were outraged by the simple cup slip up, but interestingly more people are outraged by major coffee companies usage of disposable cups.  The Cup's Got To Go

And on the topic of “trash”, carbon dioxide levels hit a landmark of 415ppm, which is the highest in human history. F%&K!

 

If you’re still confused Bill Nye explains why the planet is on “f***ing fire!”

For so many of us, coffee isn’t just a beverage but the means to have an experience. In 2004 director Jim Jarmusch released the film “Coffee and Cigarettes” - a series of 11 vignettes focusing on the human experience of indulging in these two items. My favorite, stars none other than Bill Murray and RZA & GZA of the WuTang Clan.
A must watch…

This week’s image is from the archives, making a cup of our first round of instant coffee on a portaledge in the Bugaboos of British Columbia. For all the climbers out there check out these new game changing light blow up portaledges by G7 Equipment. 

I’m pretty psyched to use one of these on my next expedition!
