Drying Weather

Published by at 1:18 pm under Expeditions and Experiences

Spring is the best time for drying meat and fish in this area. The weather is generally quite dry then and there are yet no flies hatched. I cut the meat into thin sheets and lay them over rocks or on logs in front of rocks. The sun stores heat in the rocks aiding the drying process. Any ribs I just hang as they are since the meat on them is so thin anyway. The plastic bag functions as a scarecrow.

During rain I hang the food in the lavvo to be heated by the campfire. This is also the solution during high summer when the flies are always on standby for some meat.
