Beef jerky. What do you think of? A quick stop at a gas station? Gnawing on plywood that’s packed with all sorts of unknown ingredients? Not appetizing and not healthy.
We were excited when we had the opportunity to try out some of Krave Jerky that claims to dispel all of those notions. Krave calls it gourmet jerky and it doesn’t disappoint. Their natural meats (beef, pork and turkey) are expertly seasoned in unique flavors and are tender and insanely tasty. Some of our favorites have been their Garlic Chili Pepper Beef, Chili Lime Beef, Sweet Chipotle Beef and Lemon Garlic Turkey. It’s become routine to hammer a bag (or two) on the skintrack. Can’t decide which flavor to try? We recommend buying in bulk; the Sampler pack is a great deal.
Was this weekend Old Man Winter’s last fluffy dump? It sure was a wintery one in Northern VT, with no signs of spring. Ukko was good, but the nameless flakes that fell this past weekend were better, deeper, and lighter. Fighting an Ukko induced allergic reaction to tracks, the only known cure was an unannounced weekend of White Chambers®.

Traditionally, March is the most powdery month of the year. Over the past few seasons, this hasn’t been the case and the pre-mature demise of winter has left us yearning for more time in the White Chamber®. This March got off to another poor start, with over an inch of rain blanketing the mountains, followed by temps dropping close to 0ºF and locking up the snowpack. Thankfully, the cold temps have helped relaunch winter. This past weekend left close to a foot of stellars and the high elevation woods were riding great.
With the ice covered up, it looks like another storm this week could put us in great shape to close out March. Let’s hope this pattern keeps up!
The new snow was riding great if you knew where the wind piled it up.
