    I will also be tapping Sunday. About 100 buckets. If I was still on vac I would have been tapped for a couple of weeks now.

    All tapped and ready to go here.
    Finished up today in the 10 degree weather with 30mph winds. If the forecast holds true we will be ripping through sap by monday. Have 5000 this year up from 1250 last year, should be exciting.

    Did you ever put that Gast 1023 to work that you bought from me? Just wondering how it performs.

    Yes.
    Its up the road on a small leased woods. Only had 350 taps on it and a sap ladder. Works well.
    Would like to get a little more out of it but the ladder kills it.
    Luckily its a 2.5-3% woods

    5000 is a boat load!
    I think sap's going to break loose tomorrow and go all day Monday - you've got the oil tank full I hope!

    With 5000 you better keep ‘em full!
    You’re going to make more in one day than lots of us will all season.
    Did you get ever get the silo tank you were looking at?

    Still have my money on tomorrow running like a freight train.
