Winter hunters wisely take Spam on the polar ice cap because Spam doesn’t freeze. (now I don’t know this for a fact….but I’ll sure experiment and tell you sometime down the trail. Next time I go to the grocery I’ll get a can and we’ll see. If I find out it is true…I’m not sure I’ll want to eat it any more and I’ve always enjoyed fried Spam and eggs…..because that just doesn’t sound right!)
Here’s one more Spam fact. Snowmobilers breaking trail for the Iditarod discovered that if they wired a can of Spam to their exhaust manifold, they had a perfect hot meal ready in 50 miles! Hey, I have a great idea. Take along a double thickness of foil, surrounding a potato, some carrots and onions and wire that on too and you’d really have a meal. I’ll have to have a grandson check this out for us. Now if there were just room to wire on a Cherry Pie too! -BJ
