Any of you guys have experience drying outdoors?
I've been thinking that transporting fresh harvest is both a very delicate and risky endeavor. I've done it before with food-grade 5 gallon buckets filled with buds and ice packs, but that seems overly sketchy.
What I'm thinking about doing instead is stringing buds up in the trees to pre-dry for a few days. Then come back and pack them up in either big jars or turkey bags and haul them out in my pack. I figure that's the least sketchy way, and I'll be able to make less tricks with the buds pre-dryed.
It also helps with smell concerns, both in terms of fresh, wet bud and the clothes worn while chopping aren't part of the equation.
What do you guys think?
If hereafter any highly cultured, poetical nation shall lure back
to their birthright, the merry May-day gods of old; and livingly
enthrone them again in the now egotistical sky; on the now un-
haunted hill; then be sure, exalted to Jove’s high seat,
the great Sperm Whale shall lord it.
