Looks like I need a power cord and a current bush to plug into.
When we had our snowmobiles we had a oven that wood strap on to the exhaust. recipe 40 mph for 1/2 hour will cook a hot pocket. worked great.
I use a Bialetti Venus 6 (expresso) cup stovetop moka pot.
I don't know anything about expresso. I use it to make 1 mug of FAH* coffee in 3 minutes on propane fire. Simple to clean and set up cup 2. Wants a fine grind but not fussy. Brews pretty much any grind you use. How a moka pot works
If I have company my go to is French press, coarse grind 4 minutes brew time. More involved and needs more water to clean up for next round than the moka pot. Makes a little more fancy brew. I read a coffee snob blog where you get a better brew stirring with chopsticks cause they aren't stainless steel like the spoon I use.
Neither needs electricity.

Thanks for the info.
Several years worth of updates sounds like a lot of data to download....
I was hoping that a MS approved Referb notebook might have a later version fresh install needing fewer updates to bringing it up-to-date.....
We are presently still up in our Oregon two summer homes and both have less than stellar internet service so I have some concerns about having the large updates hanging up due to iffy connections......I suppose I could go to the local library where the connection would be better but I was hoping to get other tasks done around the shop while the updates install by themselves.
Perhaps a better might be to wait a couple weeks until we are back to our winter home in South Nevada where we have a killer fiber connection and then the bottleneck will likely be the hardware speed of the notebook itself.
Our Nevada fiber has spoiled us for sure.
How soon we forget checking into a motel and patching into the phoney telephone system and then getting the modem to dial ....nine.....then pause....then dial the office and then....the VPN...... then.....then....then...
Oh the good ole days.....at least back then the malware packages were smaller it seemed......
Well thanks again for the update advice and with this info in mind it seems prudent to wait untill I get back to our fiber connection in Nevada.
Drive on......(Better net connection, better updates..... hopefully)
