Not sure where this image came from, but obviously someone was inspired after passing through the salty little hamlet just outside of Boone, NC (Watauga County). If you ever need to know anything about Meat Camp, stop in and see Pat Beaver at ASU's Center for Appalachian Studies. Wikipedia has this to offer: 'Situated along the Old Buffalo Trail and established before the Revolutionary War, Meat Camp was the location where hunters stored there dressed animal carcasses until they were ready to return to their homes in the lowlands.' Pretty cool.
