    Default Never give an inch!!!!!,2014,,,,salisbury sugarworks

    Well as usual we are a ways from being ready,,,,we now have 1650 tapped at rte.11 waiting for some warm weather to deploy the pump and releaser (high crime area).......lost access to the driveway below sanborns orchard where vac pump and releaser sap tank had been so now we have the pump and tank 2000 feet from the road and 40 feet below the road..will be trying to pump sap from releaser tank 70 feet up hill to a second tank on top of hill then sap will gravity flow to road via 2, 1 inch lines 2000 feet long at a 2 precent slope ( a lifetime of adventure just setting this up).. 808 nice taps at sanborns,,,,,,havent been to hill in a while 1700 taps...will start there when rte.11 and sanborns are running,,,,,shooting for 4000 taps this year plenty to add on,,supplies deployed in the woods
    And the sugarhouse is a mess!!! R.O. questionable, new tank room half built.........never a dull moment and nothing but fun.....
    GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!!!

    We have sanborns at 22 inches of mercury and pump out system working, could definatly use some modifications ,,,got rte.11 vac set up and running,,,the Indiana liquid ring pump from tucker mountian is pretty amazing,,after overcomming some minor obstacles with the set up-start up,,got it fired up and.......5 inches of merc. On 1600 taps,,,,6 hours later it was 21 inches...when i was chasing leaks i did not stop to fix the small ones..just went for the missed taps,,,chew thru lines ect...by the end of the day the system was getting tight enough that the leaks were very loud and i could hear the over the beech leaves and road sounds..when we get time we will get rte.11 real tight,,cant wait to see it run into the releaser at 28 inch-o-vac....snow is about 3 feet deep at rte.11,,,,,,,ran a little Saturday...gotta get to hill and tap and get the sugarhouse put together for maple weekend.
    Good luck to all

    This has been a cold and slow to start season. It looks like you needed the extra time to get ready. Good luck this season Parker.

    You should be able to get those in this weekend if you don't have to many things to fix. Hurry up and get tapped in so the season can start for the rest of us.
