It's like crushing grapes.
The hide is then tied to the back of a snowspeeder, hauled out across the ice, fleshed, and dried. The fleshing out process alone takes about 5-9 hours (longer for a better hide) with no breaks; rotting meat in room temperature for extended hours would not be a good look.
A tooth is also extracted so that the wampa can be aged.
It's like counting tree rings.
When I left Kimmirut today I thought I was going to die. I'd much rather break my back on a kamotik and have my face slapped for 5 hours by Frosty than fly in a Twin Otter again; you really don't know what flying in turbulence feels like until you're being blasted through the air in a sardine can.
Oh, and a few things about Kimmirut:
- It looks like a heel ("Kimmirut").
- It has The Bay (est. 1909, along with a church of the same age).
- It's wind will keep you inside, but you can always sew pualuks and watch Star Wars to pass time.
- It's tides shift daily. You can hear the ice cracking and shifting. Maker's Mark on the rocks.
