    Got 125 gallons today,not bad considering that the trees arent awake yet.I lit the fires and had a nice short boil this afternoon.My son checked the tanks before we left and there was 40 gallons for tomorrow.Hows everyone else doing?

    i have 50 5 gallon pails with 1-3 gallons in them ready to be picked up in the morning. spend the day leveling 2x6 getting everything ready to boil tomorrow. sap flowed pretty good today. lack of real freeze tonight may reduce flow tomorrow

    Been out straight this week,the guzzler is worth its weight in gold.My trees just started to open up today.The rings around them arent to the ground,but there still is 3 feet of snow on the ground.I got 300 gal today and it started running at 11 am.Going to freeze tonight so should be a good day tomorow.
