Whenever I take a trip, I like to do an according "authentic" activity. The word authentic is in quotes because most of my ideas about what real people do in a certain place are derived from books and movies.
On my recent trip to visit my Grandad, I naturally set my sights on finding a local delicacy : the state's best beef - or other animal - jerky. We drove 40 minutes outside of town and stopped at a little place along the roadside called M & S Meat. Do you see the taxidermied porcupine nestled among silk Black-Eyed-Susans and antlers? It was everything I dreamed. And the cowboy-food was so salty and so good
Of course, I was selected for the random check at the airport on our way home
... with two pounds of peppered buffalo and one pound of teriyake wild-turkey jerky stuffed into my backpack.
