Branch water....also. Lake Superior is sweet water, among other spots.

My memory of it was that it was wrapped in fat soaked wax paper and incredibly messy to work with. But, it was so good.

My favorite is Deer Hunting bacon from a small butcher shop in the next town over .
Double smoked and thick sliced with 6 to 8 slices per pound
Picked up 5 lbs this morning for our annual deer hunting trip . Nothing like a big breakfast before you head out for a day in the woods .Gotta keep your saturated fat and cholesterol levels up when it’s cold .

PS; Tuesday’s breakfast is 2 lbs of Canadian bacon potatoes , onions & eggs all fried in bacon fat.!

Free flowing spring water that is safe to drink in our part of the world is pretty rare these days.
We’ve got an artesian at the farm in Tama county but due to the nature of groundwater at the application of chemicals on adjacent farm ground, I would not trust it. I used to make sure I made my way over to the “well” ( a pipe with water flowing 24-7 for the last 100 plus years) and get a drink from this iron charged source. I quit a few years ago, just did not seem safe
to me. Otherwise, the seeps in the forest and the little bitty foot high waterfalls into a tiny pool
In the central Idaho when I worked and visited there over the years were a good water source. Unless it was late in the summer and the free range cattle were grazing the hillside above. I like my fireball on a tray with a bottled water chaser about an hour later at bed time. How about you Tom?

Not available commercially in the midwest (major packers) jowl bacon is a specialty product that’s pretty good too. I trimmed jowls (cut out the stick wound) at 1800 an hour (5 trimmers) when I was laid off from the night kill for a couple weeks). I asked where all the jowl bacon went. “It’s all shipped East” was the simple and no further explanation answer. My friend (Harley the Smoker) brought me some one night. Very meaty and tasty. Hot Canadian bacon just off the rack is pretty good too. But not bacon.

Never understood the appeal of thick sliced bacon. I like mine thin and crispy, perhaps because I'm not equipped with my original teeth.
But, the breakfast sounds wonderful.
I'm tired of arguing with wait staff who claim the deep fried potato cubes they serve are hash browns. I said to one, you can call a hamburger a t-bone, but that doesn't make it a t-bone.
I now always ask before putting my faith in the menu entry.

Canadians call "Canadian bacon" ham.
Not sure why you guys blame it on us.

My son has decided that Grandpa is going to take my 6 year old Grandson out deer hunting this Fall . So yesterday I headed to the local lumber yard and $250 later I came home with a bunch of screws , nails and asst treated lumber
My kids supposed reasoning behind this project is that Grandpa needs a good safe deer stand with heat but it seems strange that this logic never applied before my Grandson decided he wanted to go hunting
I will be spending today out in the woods with my son and Grandson constructing something that will hopefully resemble a deer stand
I can guarantee you it will be nothing like Iowa Dave’s stand which was apparently designed by Frank Lloyd Wright but it will be safe , probably because we don’t want my Grandson to get hurt

* Myron , I admire your ability to paint a vivid picture with words ! *

My life is better since I discovered Costco mostly already cooked bacon.
