Gone packin’

Dear returning reader,

I just got the phone call — Sam got a moose this morning. We’ll be spending the day hauling the meat down the mountain, through the forest, and back to our home using backpacks. It’s an incredible amount of work, but it will provide our entire meat supply for the upcoming year. As my dad once said to me when he called to tell me he had a moose down and needed help packing  — It’s time to kick off the Birkenstocks and put on the hiking boots!
