Moose Tracks

I received a phone call from my friend yesterday telling me that there was a moose skin on the side of the road. Really? (it fell off a truck who was hauling animal skins from a factory or something).

To the average person, this would be a disgusting artifact and should be left to decompose. However, to people like me (outdoorsy and nerdy), this is a valuable piece of material. It can be tanned and made into nice leather worth 200 dollars or more. So I made a trip to the location and luckily found it on the side of the road. It was huge! It’s too dark to be Elk so we’re assuming it’s Moose skin.

I called my friend Connie (who is married and has a house) and her backyard is already set up for tanning hides (note: “already set up for tanning hides” … true outdoor nerds). I live in a small apartment and do not have the space or tools, so I have to enlist the help of others.

And then Katt. So Katt. Well. Katt. Hmmm. Katt. We’ll just leave it at that. Don’t really know what to say other than I probably shouldn’t make my dating life a public matter. Eh?

So I wrapped the skin in a thick trash bag and stuffed it in my freezer…
