I got one too after seeing Jen use Brenton's... Worked "ok" and let in more than a few grounds, then I read that there is a specific direction for the press to fit in the cup. As I recall the "flare" should be towards the bottom (direction of the 'press'). Haven't re tried but it was amazingly fast at getting the water to temp.
Even my 'good' press lets in some grounds. But yeah, the JetBoil press isn't perfect by any means. But since I usually carry it on my back instead of in a truck I was willing to put up with that for the weight savings. It's going to take me a while to get used to this car-camping thing, but I'm willing to learn.

One thing that I didn't see mentioned much in the previous posts was to be sure that if you get a large one and you put lots in it, be careful because they can get heavy quick and lifting to the rod rack can become tricky if you don't regularly lift your spare tire over your head.
Very true!. I'm 6'4" and can just get the camp kitchen over the rack bars. That's one advantage to having the air springs lower the truck I guess:)

Chuck uses heavy duty duffles for soft items on top that are low profile and easy the throw around.
I also use Pelican cases in the truck for organization of kitchen stuff. A smaller one with kitchen essentials for small/trail meals and a larger one with everything else.
I am finding I am scaling down my gear and trying to consolidate and only bring items I use. Every trip I seem to he loaded to the hilt!

Here's what can happen if you get too much weight in the roof rack:
Oh, that's just sad to look at. Was there something in particular that caused that roll-over to occur? -- I'll take notes to avoid doing it. (Looks like lesson 1 is "don't overload the top.")
