If you run out of food and you’re up in Norway pine country, odds are you won’t find a dagwood. Grab your fishing rod and hope for a lawyer or a northern. You can always try to shine a deer, too. Once you’re back to civilization, enjoy a nice hot dish and some ostkaka for dessert—but ish, no lutefisk—and be glad you weren’t outside when it started to snirt.
