As Wolfy says, you can make a decent "dry" oven sausage out of ground beef.  One of our holiday favorites because it's so easy and doesn't involve smoking, or stuffing casings.
I prefer to make my own also, and doing that eliminates the alphabet soup of preservatives you find in commercial products. I make my own pepperoni and beef sticks stuffed in collagen casings, but it's labor intensive.

This statement I understand. Complain about the cold I understand to a point. Someone that doesn't like winter cold weather could move to a warmer spot.... most could if truly dissatisfied.

Of course it doesn't get as low on the F scale here as reported by those further North. Yet, just as OP(I think) said, after a certain amount of time one gets acclimated and air temp becomes less important than things like sunshine, humidity and wind.  I would like to see more snow, but not enough to move. Nevertheless Today it was 70 and it was a treat.

I guess when spring hits we can have a > it's too green, mild, wet thread before we get to : damn its hot.
We have close to 105F annual temperature flux. Two friends of mine in the Seattle area usually have less than a 50F flux, but they have webbed feet due to all the rain.  :-\ 
But we do have ample sunshine, very little rain, and virtually no wind in our valley.  35F is "T-shirt weather" for us. The only insects we are concerned with are paper wasps in the dry months, and tics in the spring, if you get into the deep woods.
I've lived in hot, humid climates (including over seas), and I just can't deal with working up a sweat chewing my food!
Gear Reviews / Neos Navigator over boots.
« Last post by wsdstan on February 16, 2018, 09:43:13 AM »
The last four years I have been using Neos Navigator boots when it is below zero and/or we have deep snow.  These boots are very quickly put on or taken off and offer a lot of flexibility in how you use them. 

First you can wear a variety of shoes or boots in them.  I often wear fleece lined slippers in them when shoveling snow or running the tractor.  If I am snowshoeing with them I wear lightweight boots like a pair of Chukka boots or Clark's Treks.

Secondly you can also wear Pac boot liners in them when it is extremely cold or you are doing something like sitting in a tree stand.

These boots are fairly easy to walk in, have held up quite well, and are useful in a variety of cold weather applications like snowshoeing, stand hunting, ice fishing, and running a snow sled or tractor. 

Retail price varies from $120 to $150 depending on the retail outlet.  They are sized in S M L XL  XXL ranges.  The XL works well with my boots and I wear a 10.5 shoe.  The Navigators are lightly insulated.  The outer shell is cordura nylon and the soles are a synthetic molded product with good tread design.

This photo is when I first started using them.  I have replaced my Pac boots, Air Force MukLuks, and Tingley overshoes with these boots.  I still use my Muck boots when conditions are cold and muddy or it involves working cattle where one needs to be as quick on their feet as they can get.

Wow, I don't know what to say. First, Moe, I'm glad you received the little wood stove, I'm sure you'll enjoy using it. I had purchased one last year and have had fun using it with twigs, charcoal, and wood pellets and thought you may like one.

Second, thanks everyone for their kind words. I've received much more than I could ever give back from this forum and my Kracaneuner friends. Appreciate the comments.

     Great thread, Moe.  Greg is a super guy.  Also when in camp he always has a big smile on his face, always looks you in the eye when you're talking,  and is always baking some goodies.  Many of us down here have experienced his unexpected generosity.  We are blessed with some very good men in the Kracaneuner Tribe.

Cub Scouts, Webelos,  and a year or so of Boy Scouts,  but we lived in the country by then and I had a big farm to camp on.  Went with my Dad's geology class on campouts,  MN canoe camping,  I just seemed to be ok reading books and doing what they did.

    Mom was our Cub Scout den mother.  Still not sure if that was good or bad.  lol.

My mom was a den leader, even after we went on to boy scouts

That's pretty cool
 If it was a total surprise-how did he get your address?

I know who to PM next time I need help with a snoop. Thanks for the intel

  I wondered that myself,  but I did buy a really sweet knife from him a couple of years ago  (one of my favorite users), I'm assuming he kept my mailing information and referred to it.
