    MaineFamily - some great folks from up Dover/Sangerville way used to put little bottles of Maine Maple Syrup in their caches (which always had great swag)! They, too, lived close to their hides and maintained them well.

    Now that would be a treasure.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    I have only done 78 trees so far. The snow is still covering up my big line. Maybe after the next rain storm. Should be around 220 when that line is up and running. The season is about a week late this year.

    Collected on Sunday and things are running very well. Have about 40 trees tapped about got about 10 gallons the first week. We keep getting these nice warm days and chilly nights, it should be a good season. Cant wait to sit around and boil with a few frosty cold beverages.

    Ah, the famous sit around and boil with a frosty beverage. How I miss that! I have now collected 128 gallons of sap. I hope the runs get bigger soon.

    I know how to toss a log on a fire. I know when sap is boiling and when it's not. I like to drink beer. I am, therefore, a maple syrup expert. Let me know when you start the fire and I'll be by!

    Today was finally a good day.85 gallons! I still have to put the big pipeline into production. I have enough to boil this Saturday Dan and you need to have beer at hand so that every thing goes well.

    We now have 3 invites to attend "boiling festivities" Saturday. I need to load a keg in the back of the family truckster and make the rounds. What time are you starting Jim?
