    • Thanks Jan, that is a good question. I’ve asked Jimmy to answer your question. “After a lifetime of having all the freezer space for anything I might bring home this RV life has invited a different approach to putting food up for the winter. I now have two big pressure canners that I have been preserving venison in, as well as, tuna. Elk will be next. Luckily I have a place to store things here in Oregon where we are based.” — Jimmy Smith
