Re: Shelf stable?
I finally got around to trying my own hand at pemmican. I used London broils on sale at Ralphs and already rendered beef tallow from US Wellness meats. I bought a food processor especially for t...

Re: Feedback, lightening load, fretting over nothing
1. Shirt. If you've regretted it in the past, bring it this time. 2. Ipod. Leave it home. My personal opinion, but I'll often bring an instrument which weighs much more. 3. Camp shoes...
