Im really hoping that this next weekend I will be able to do a whole new bunch of pics on my photobucket for you guys with all my improvements. Theres a lot of neat things to see. Wayside- Where is your setup in Troy? I thought I new everyone that was sugaring in my area. Do you have a tubing bush or run buckets? Im over near Roseville. Theron

    Theron I hope you have your swimmies ready. You were having trouble keeping up last year and now you have almost twice as much. You need to update your signature and get rid of the smiley at the end of your photobucket address so we can see you pictures. Good luck with the BIG SAP. I would like to come down and help but I have too much to do to get more taps on line here.

    Theron, I had 400 on gravity tubing and 70 on buckets when I was in high school. Sold the sap to rollosons(not sure how to spell there name) on RT 6 near Sylvania. I took all that down when I started college last year and have just been tapping around the house. Im just east of troy on RT 6 past Procare physical therapy, big white house on the right. My plan is to have my whole set up read to go when I graduate (or sooner). Just bought the evap, have tubing and taps, collection tanks, have mostof the stuff just waiting to have the time to do it. My Uncle lives in Dagget so we have prolly drivin by your place a few times.

    Wayside- If you turn right there to the right are you the guy that tapped the big trees by the road up towards the cemetary? You are in a good spot. Between your house and the Little Red hen theres a LOT of nice maples both sides of the roads on the banks. I think about how Id tube them everytime I drive by. I bet you could come up with a thousand nice taps with both sides. Plus there on those banks, I wonder if someone would let you do it? Theron

    I wish I was tapping those trees. One of my buddies taps those,well his dad does, but I have already talked to the owner of the cemetary and when they stop I have dibs haha. All my taps were on my land, and I had barely scratched the surface with the 400 taps. I figure ill be able to get 2500 off my property, there was an old sugar shack up there when we bought the place, that has since fallen down, had an ald english tin flat pan in it. if i can get the neighbors permission I could easily add 1500 to 2000 on to that 2500.

    Default Update from P.F. in Sabinsville Pa

    To everyone a Happy, Healthy, & Successful, sugar season!!
    Gary R - Hi, hope you can make a visit in sugaring season too. We do do alot of hay in the summer. Almost as much hay as sap!
    Russell - Hi, Our R.O. has spouted !!?? to 13 membranes now with 2 motars. We expect to do around 7500 gph. W will see.
    Casey - Yes come for a visit and we promise you wont have to work, just bring the donuts!
    Theron keep going!!! Youre not losing you are slowly catching up.!! We thank Theron for putting up some of our pics cause us old foggys dont know how to do it. Its a challage to type on this page. Linda Neal has to listening then type what I say, at least the spelling is better.
    The update for this year from here is a 13 membrane RO, 83,000 taps. Last year we lost one of our bushes so we got 2 small to take the place and a new one added on. Linda keeps saying she is going to quit if I get any sugar bush but she is still here. We also dont have some of the boys here working this year because o the gas jobs, so we have hired some Amish and they seem to be working out well. We are aiming for Feb 22 to start tapping. Shpould take us about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks if all goes well. Everyone keep in touch.

    Hello Richard! I think many of us have thought you've already been busy tapping. I was at Ed Grandzel's house a couple weeks ago. He has his new rig all set up and ready to go. He added forced air. Hope things go well for you guy's. Save some sap for the rest of us

    Hi Richard,

    Last year when I was down Todd and I were joking about how all of my sap from the whole season would fit into one of the 4500 gallon tanks that you have. We were wrong. I could have filled both of them and then some with the sap that I got last season.

    I won't be able to come down this year to check out the new additions to the RO room. I wish I could though. Theron has got the jump on you again this year. He started tapping in January. I'm kind of surprised that you haven't followed his lead yet. Have a good season and keep us updated.
