More Winter Skills That Kept The Pioneers Alive

I grew up in a log house in Wyoming not far from the Colorado border. That was many years ago, when a trip to town was a major event. We heated with wood which chops easier in freezing weather. I remember Daddy and “the boss” working long days in the fall to haul in enough wood and cut it to stove length to get us through those long winters which often started in September and didn’t end until the end of May.

We kids slept in an unheated second story under quilts so heavy we could hardly turn over. Mom heated rocks on the stove, wrapped them in rags and gave them to us to keep our feet warm. The roof wasn’t very good and more than one morning, we woke up to snow on the quilts!

Besides salting meat, some of it was put in crocks under fat, some of it was dehydrated ala jerky and some of it was fresh as Daddy and “the boys” hunted rabbits and deer. Dried food like beans and peas were a large part of our winter diets because they kept very well.

Those were the days, though! Today we are so insulated from everything uncomfortable that we are fat, weak and unhappy. Sunshine, fresh air, hard work, real food and sometimes limited calories makes a person healthy.

    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    picked up anything new from right here. I did however expertise some technical issues using
    this web site, since I experienced to reload the web site a lot of times previous to

    OK? Not that I am complaining, but slow loading instances times will sometimes affect your placement in google and can damage
    your high quality score if advertising and marketing with Adwords.

    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out
    there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or tips? Cheers!

    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However think of if you added

    Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this blog could
    undeniably be one of the best in its field. Excellent blog!

  231. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?

    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style
    seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  232. First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a
    quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t
    mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my
    thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or
    tips? Many thanks!

  233. I appreciate you sharing this blog post. Will read on…

  234. I all the time used to read article in news papers but now as I am a
    user of web thus from now I am using net for
    articles or reviews, thanks to web.
