Provisioning Update

I made 8 days worth of hardtack today, bringing my total rations to 43 days worth. To reach my goal of 140 rations I’ll need to make 6.4 cups of the stuff per week from now until June 1. It should be easily accomplished. The pemmican on the other hand is getting behind. I’ve been hoping to pique the interest of a beef jerky distributor, and thereby acquire the 60 lbs of dry beef I need for free. Hopefully someone will find my cause worthy. At this rate I need to produce 20 bricks of pemmican a week to be on target. If it takes me a month to lock down a beef supplier that figure goes to 25, which isn’t too daunting. I think mixing and shaping the pemmican bricks will take far less labor than mixing dough, rolling it out, and baking it for 45 minutes.
