    When you get busted by the Turkey you've been waiting for cause your checking out all the trees behind you. I'm worse than the kids I holler at to sit still.

    Mapleman85 I can relate when I had my Lapiere Water-loo small evap sent to me back in 2012 I had them ship it to me in Parker Colorado and I got a few phone calls from factory asking me if they had the address right and what I knew that they didn't. I had it sent to the local lumber yard for the forklift service and when I pulled up to get it people were looking at it like it was a Mermaid in an aquarium. Come on boys get er loaded I need this thing in my garage ASAP so I can stare at it for the next 10 days.

    That's awesome! I used our car hauler to pick up our 4x16 Leader Vortex. To get it off the trailer I backed the end of the trailer into the garage, put machine dolly wheels under it, hooked it to the UTV wench set the parking brake, and chained the UTV to the truck to ensure it wouldn't it dragged. Then used the jack on the trailer, raised the front end up and very carefully lowered it in our sugarhouse. Redneck ingenuity at its finest!IMG_1849.jpg

    You know you're a maple addict when you and your wife spent your 12 year wedding anniversary bottling syrup, making candies and suckers to restock before upcoming sales.IMG_1930.jpg
