Groceries for a week on a boat

We’re chartering a sailboat from the Moorings for seven days and we had to order all of groceries ahead of time.  It was hard to plan all of our needs for a week in an environment we aren’t used to.  How much water do you need?  How many cookies?  What to eat for breakfast?  We ended up planning for four meals onboard: cornish game hens, salmon, mahi-mahi and steak.  Frank is planning two of them and our friend Barbara is planning the other two.  Then we planned to eat most of our breakfasts and lunches on board with lots of snacks and appetizers included.  We didn’t skimp on anything and all our food and drinks ended up costing us almost $800 (for five people) from Bobby’s.

We ordered by downloading their spreadsheet, filling out our order, sending it back to them via email and then they sent us a quote.  They will deliver it to our boat at noon on Thursday!  I’ll let you know how it goes!

Dogs Can Find Deer Antlers

Posted in dogs, hunting on March 5th, 2007 by stormy – 2 Comments

Roger Sigler is teaching dogs how to find shed deer antlers
when hiking in the wilderness.  Many people actively look for deer
antlers as collectible items – now you can have your dog trained to
look for them too.  Roger says retreivers learn the easiest.  Antlers
smell different than deer so dogs trained to find antlers will not end
up chasing deer all over the mountain!

Before you decide this is a great new business to be in (finding and selling deer antlers or moose or caribou), you should check what they sell for.  Since we have surplus of horns and antlers, we checked, and people are asking a lot on eBay but people aren’t buying much.
