    For those that have never been to Hawaii, that's not a joke. Those guys eat a LOT of Spam.

    Fill: Spam (reduced sodium version) ramen (no added seasoning packet) boil then remove fat from spam with patch of oil spill absorbent material. Dog food is light, packs away and keeps well, and is mainly for the dog co-pilot that eats it regularly. But it's available for others with a couple cans of Spam in the S gear.

    Note: The Oceania folks learned to wear their survival gear on long voyages. Now we dress with a SG vest.

    I've heard that before, but never understood why.
    Did everyone there get hooked on it back in WW2 days?
    I mean spam isn't bad, but it's not real high on my preferred food list.

    Typical Hawaiian families (including mixed ethnicity permanent residents) generally don't consume slabs of meat like mainlanders do. They eat smaller portions and smaller bites. If a family is having steak they each get a couple of bites of steak to go with rice and veg. Same with fish. Or small bites in Saimin, Ramen, Lau Lau, etc. I don't know if it's the culture or if economics drove the culture but Spam fits in well. And if you ever get the chance to eat authentic Hawaiian? Don't pass up the pig's feet. Unbelievably good.

    Had some work down in Winchester VA today. Stopped by Taylors & Company while I was there. Ended up putting my name on the waiting list for a 20" Alaskan in .44RM! Nice showroom where I could spend way more money than my wife would want me to! 1892 Alaskan Take-Down .44RM, 20” Barrel, Black Soft Touch, Padded Stock End (taylorsfirearms.com) It was a hard choice between the Alaskan and the wood stock 1892 Take down in .45LC Taylor’s 1892 Takedown Rifle .45 LC 24” Octagonal (taylorsfirearms.com). They say they should be getting a shipment in a "couple months".

    I picked up a Savage M42 in .22WMR and 3Ē .410 chambering. At 50 yards I was shooting a few 2Ē 3-shot groups with the open sights. And with 5 pellets of 00 Buck at 15 yards I was comfortable with the pellet spread and ability to get off a fast shot. It is a handy takedown rifle furnished with a nice case. Gun weight alone is 5 pounds. I took it on its first plane ride into Hells Canyon.
