I went on a trip with the wife to one of our local state parks. It is known as the largest freshwater marsh in America. This is an awesome place with several miles of trails that change from prairie to marsh to forest to water.
There is a cool lookout spot with telescopes to watch the wildlife. When you get to the park go on the first trail follow it until it intersects a paved road and you will see a gravel road with a big boulder in the center of it directly ahead of you. This is where the cool part of the trail starts. I don't think this part of the trail gets travelled much because I didn't see anyone on it. After you walk the whole trail you will see what looks like the foundation of an old house and this leads out to the pavement by where you parked.
We had a great time at horicon marsh and will be going back soon.
Cast iron cookware, the best of the best. Unless you don't know how to care for it. Any cast iron cookware can be restored no matter how old and nasty as long as it isn't cracked, because under the surface it is still nice heavy duty cookware. Modern cast iron pots and pans generally come preseasoned but this seasoning will wear off in time if not taken care of. Also if you have an allergy to soy you may need to burn out and reseason the iron before using it. I'd like to address a few myths first before getting into proper care
1.You cant wash cast iron with soap. You most certainly can it wont hurt anything just make sure the piece is thoroughly dried before it gets put away.
2. Rusted iron is junk. False, remove the rust with a scouring pad or steel wool and reseason.
3. You cant use metal utensils in cast iron. It's not Teflon, it wont scratch or flake. Cast iron is harder on the Rockwell scale than your stainless spatula. The worst that will happen from using metal…
Refrigerators are a relatively new invention prior to this people would smoke or salt meat to preserve it. Smoking meat is similar to turning it into jerky to make it last longer and make it easier to transport as well as having an extra protein source on hand. Smoking will prevent the waste of valuable meat and allow you to kill bigger game. Fish, large mammals, and large reptiles
I was recently at my father in laws house and noticed a Dietz cold blast junior he had hanging on his garage wall. I said something about it and he told me I could have it. Old oil lanterns are bulletproof other than the
