    We had porcupines at a kids camp in central lower Michigan. They used to chew through the varnished posts on the primitive cabins to get to the cedar or hemlock posts that made the buildings. They also consumed a regular diet of lead.
    2017- Started small- 90 taps and made 7 gallons. Long days and a few nights on a 1x2 and turkey fryer. Did a lot of reading. Caught the bug!

    2018- Bought a homebuilt 2x4 and building a small scale RO... # of taps- ? Well ... more then last year.
