I'm thinking of a summer vacation sometime in July.
Is there somewhere we could rent a couple of ATV's?
Also, how long would it take to drive over to Lake Winnipesaukee. My cousins have a couple of cabins on Bear Island.
Bull
I don't know about ATV rentals. I'm not as outdoorsy as people think But I'm about 1 to 1.5 hours from the lakes region

Still floating. Slaughter should be Saturday with processing / roast on Sunday. The weather looks to be VERY warm this weekend so I'm having some doubts about this weekend. Ideally, it's below 40F at night and looks to be in the 50s.

I will be slaughtering the following weekend. I will keep checking back here. I have some people coming up next weekend for Dartmouth football, and the Pats game is at 1 on Sunday. I'll see what I can do to stop by. PM me the your contact info.

Sweet. I'd love to stop by. Thanks for the invite? Mind if the GF comes as my +1? I can bring some beer. I'll keep you up to date on the date. I hope it's this coming Saturday. Don't want to resort to an ice bath. Would rather just hang it but that depends on the weather.

Cool! Best of luck! Need any help?

We did our yesterday. Today I am butchering and storing all of the meat and starting cures of the Ham roasts and bellies.

Adam, I'll give you a call next week.

The picture of you with the semi auto in one hand and the knife behind your back is a little frightening lol. Ooh come out to my remote cabin pretty gnarly set of pics. I wonder how many people could do this instead of just picking up nice little packages of meat from the cooler at the supermarket.

My friend who helped me with skinning saw that and said, "why in the hell were you hiding the knife like an assassin? The pig already had a gun to its head."

I was amazed at how well things went. I've NEVER stuck a pig before. I got both arteries perfectly on the stick, it bled out fast and it was a silent death. I didn't cut too deep to get the heart and didn't cut into any of the meat. Most people who knew I was doing it myself thought I would screw that part up and taint the meat. It was down right perfect.

-----

A lot of friends do this to brag about how sustainable they live. I did it so I could learn something and increase my confidence in life. It's why I brew beer, travel, make things, etc. It's all about moving forward and I wanted to feel and learn about this.

this was the easy part. Now, curing, smoking, processing the meat, making pancetta, bacon, headcheese, blood sausages and pate'. Trying to use every part of the pig so the next 3 weeks is all about using all parts and learning about that.

...overall, this wasn't any cheaper than grocery store food once it's all said and done but I had a pork chop today. it was 2 inches thick, tasted amazing. so tender and delicious.

Epic. That was my favorite pic. Looks like a great time, and a $hit ton of hog in the freezer. Yum!!
