Here are the rulings on the two outstanding issues; trade and salt.

Bartering will not be allowed with people not in the challenge. Likewise, the exchange of labor-for-food with outside parties will not be permitted.

Salt will be allowed for preservation only. You may choose any salt you wish (sea salt, table salt, pickling salt, etc.) but it must be used in the preservation of some food article. Salt will not be permitted for 15 days before the first day of the challenge - if you catch a fish in that window you'll have to freeze it instead of salt it, if you have pickles they need to be made before that, etc.

  1. If you want salty flavors in your food I reccomend making some very salty pickles. Just take vegetable, layer heavily with salt, and apply pressure Couple big cans. Do it in something that will allow for a good drainage. Then there you go. Salty vegetables to add into your food both preserved and seasoned.
