    Mike,
    This is an amusing question...since mid october, i have *made all shack modifications, and cleaned it up, *ordered RO parts and assembled, *ordered all sap bags and cut all the new PVC pipe I will use for this year, *decided to give tubing a try (which arrived this evening, and i am making my 3' drop lines as I answer your post), *all bottles have been received (25 cases), and lastly < * i have modified my filtering method for 2018! So yea, I am beyond ready! I ope to connect with you this year in Kent at some point during a boil...remind me what your typical boil schedules are. Im hoping with the use of the RO system this year, i will have a day here and there to visit folks in CT sugaring.

    Scott - with the number of taps you are putting out and changing to 3/16" tubing you will be lucky to sleep a few hours a night once things start rolling. I am ready to go as well but hoping for a normal season starting in February.

    2000 feet of 2" vacuum line unrolled, stretched and wire tied: Check
    1000 feet of 1" mainline up on new wire, tensioned and wire tied: Check
    600(ish) taps of new 5/16" laterals stretched, droplines cut in and manifolds installed: Check

    Still lots of odds and ends, including installing our new electric releaser and re-installing the high pressure pump for the RO, but otherwise not in too bad shape.

    Right now I guess we don't have to worry about tapping tomorrow, as winter is here, through the end of the month it looks. I lease some taps on state property right across the road from me, and the paperwork will get mailed tomorrow, still don't have that 20v drill, but Santa might -
