    This is just awful. It is the way of the world nowadays. The druggies, criminals and mentally ill are free to do what they want while honest, hard working Americans are the ones paying the price and suffering due to the lack of ethics and civic duties.

    It seems there is not a place rural enough on the east coast to escape this non-sense!

    So sorry this has happened. I am interested in the evaporator though. Do private messages work on here? I will attempt to send one to you.

    I have to say this irritates me to no end. Everytime I read your post I just feel aweful for you. Like someone said you can't accuse without evidence or you could get a slander suite. However, I would still contact the county law enforcement or state. Heck I would even call the local news stations or papers and tell them about it and ask them to do a public safety story. You don't have to name names, just say you need help stopping dangerous behavior. Believe me the community will respond to you. Most people are genuinely good.

    Tapdrinker, I am so sorry for this to happen to you. I hope you are able to find peace with the situation you find yourself in.

    It is also commendable you simply spoke calmly to the lady who did this and did not lose your temper or make any threats.

    There is a special place in the after life for people that would do that. I hope she comes back as a rock at the base of a waterfall in her next life if the sound of sap being poured is too much for her to handle it would suit her right.

    I grew up in VT sugaring and it used to be a great place where a handshake meant something. We used to tap all the neighbors trees with no problems or issues. Id tell you to not give up so easy. There may be a sugar maker that will donate some sap to you so you can get your fix. If you can make it to the northeast kingdom we could get you some sap. Anyone that has ever tapped trees not in sight of their house feels your pain. I always worried about the teenagers but a grown adult unbelievable.

    I live in northern Vermont and went to college in Randolph. It absolutely blows my mind that this could happen in Randolph Vermont. You handled this much more commendable than I would have and my hats off to you for that. Seems the days of good old Vermonters are gone, and this state is overrun with mean people that aren't from here (that's the nicest way I can put it).

    Tapdrinker: I have sent you a couple of private messages that I don't think you have seen. Have a look and let me know if you've got them.
    Thanks!

    Could you just cruise the area and find other trees within a couple of miles and maybe get permission to tap. Don't let here win. She may win the battle but you win the war.
