    i assume you meant 310 gal.... my son had spring break so he stayed at camp with me for a few days... got maybe 40-50 gal of sap on some of those days... he leaves for a doc appt n i get 155 gal.... made for a a crown royal n aleve kinda night... boiled that down for 3 days n only wound up with only 5 gal of syrup even though i added another 70 gal of sap ... musta had a low sugar content... anyway that ran the total up to 13.5 gal of syrup so i pulled taps n cjeaned up... sounds like the run continued well into april but it was budding pretty good when i left for home. speaking of ro's, son says he's getting me an ro bucket for father's day... that should help....

    no misprint on the gallons of sap. that's at least 500 gallons of syrup in a day.

    I don't think it was him personally but they collected 31,000 gallons of sap in one day which makes about 500 gallons of syrup.

    RMG has a pretty big operation. I bet all the big producers had two really big days that last week and a half of season. Kind of puts it in perspective when they make as much syrup in a half hour as I do in a whole season.
