Lumberjack Adrian Flygt chops 1,000 to 1,500 logs per season. This is in preparation for the 10-12 lumberjack competitions he takes part in each year. With that type of rigorous training, hungry lumberjacks need to eat. Hormel Foods Dinty Moore® stew is the perfect option because it is a quick and hearty option.
I can relate with hungry lumberjacks
Chicago Marathon training
I can definitely relate to the training lumberjacks go through. I am currently training for the Chicago Marathon. I eat a lot of pizza because it is quick and easy after a ten mile workout. I do not have the energy to sit over a hot stove after running ten miles. It is really easy to just pick up the phone and call a pizza delivery man.
I just surpassed 500 miles this year, and I think I may have eaten 500 pizzas. I do live in Chicago you know. I am known by first name at several local pizza joints. While pizza is a great source of protein and especially tasty, one should not live on it. I have eaten and enjoyed Hormel Foods Dinty Moore® stew in the past, but it has been awhile since I have picked it up at the grocery store. Therefore, I plan to follow Adrian’s example and eat a hearty stew when famished.
Outdoor adventure travel
While I have never cut down trees or rolled on a log, I have used a saw in the woods many times in preparation for campfires, so I can imagine how exhausting the competitions and training must be. Outdoor adventure travel whether it is hiking, canoeing, backpacking, or skiing really takes a lot out of you.
After a ten mile hike, putting up the tent, gathering wood, and all the other camping tasks, it is not easy to cook a full meal. The easier the better after a strenuous hike, so I am definitely interested in incorporating Hormel Foods Dinty Moore® stew into my outdoor adventure cupboard.
