I love the pictures! Got more?
Thanks for sharing your story with us, it is nice to take a peek at things like this, that I'd never experience otherwise.
How about dinner in the fire as the sun sets?
I haven't had a chance to get all the pic's together, but when I do I'll put the lot on photo bucket, and give y'all a link. There is only a couple of "hunting" pics. Mostly it's scenery, and camp photos.
Actually the daytime temps throughout the trip were in the range of 60 to 75 degrees. A couple of days of rain, but mostly sunshine.
Meat will keep fine for 48hrs if it is kept dry, and the flies are kept off it.
After letting the meat bleed out for a few hrs on some piled up sticks in an empty cooler box, I then wrap it in cotton cloth. Flour bags are good for this.
Then I keep out of the sun and it'll be fine. Just gotta make sure it's then well cooked.
Note: Boil the cloth before reuse.
