Tanka fan continues tradition of Tanka snacks and Alaskan views
Our friend Peter Nelson, a resident of Kyle, SD, -- the location of our headquarters -- took a trip out to the Katmai National Park and Preserve in Alaska recently. He is working on his PhD in Botany through Oregon State University.

His trips out to Alaska are part of research for his dissertation and he always has plenty of Tanka products for the trip. Below he shares about his visit.

Six people (four Americans, one Norwegian and one Italian) flew from lake to lake in float planes, hiked up peaks and ridges and explored lake shores surveying for lichens in Katmai National Park and Preserve, Alaska.

How did they have the energy to do it? Five pounds of Tanka Bar sausage for lunch is how!



Everyone was stoked to get their 4-5 thick sausage slices each day, giving them the energy to search a little harder for that elusive species on that far cliff, under the boulder or at the base of that tree. Fortunately, none of Katmai's famous grizzly bears were able to sample the sausage. Thanks again to Tanka for the best field work lunch food around.
