    Impressive for sure!

    That is cool! I'm not that far from them, but haven't been to this one yet. The automation is very impressive, they design a lot of their own.

    Neat. The automation is amazing as well as the sheer scale, but I think the biggest double-taker is the underground sap lines. I need to absorb that aspect for a moment! The automation is sensors and networks and stuff but putting lines underground is a fundamental difference. (and I'm only halfway through the video yet so perhaps there is more!)

    I finally finished watching. Definitely cool. Additionally, it occurred to me that there is something I love about all sugarhouse tour videos I've seen. There is always at least one point in the dialogue that goes like this:
    Person 1: Yup
    Person 2: Yep
    Person 3: Hm. Yep!
    Person 2: [pause] yep
    Person 1: [nod] yup
    Person 2: Nod
    Person 1: Nod
    Person 3: Yep
