    My dad did a little over 200 today and it was running pretty good. I was hoping that it wouldn't run but oh well.

    Well when I get going with tapping a lot will get done per day. I am 2 days earlier than last year but also have 1000 more taps than last year. My wife will start running my potato chip route soon so then I will be able to jam . Lappiere just came down this past week and added a 3rd post to my r.o. so that will help prevent a sunami like I had last year.

    Its going to take me some time to set up my new helium injection unit for my vacuum on one of my small woods to see how it works. if it means 40 gallons of sap per tap then next year I will have it on all 3 of my bushes.
