    I would love to watch the metal working. I don't think it's going to be hangover friendly though. I guess I'll just have to stay drunk.

    Does the sap flow better during the day or overnight?

    For the best flow you want temps below freezing at night and above freezing during the day. This creates a pressure differential and causes pressure and suction.

    No sap for us this year :nah
    Everybody is to busy being grown ups for the time off. The facebook timehop showed that a year ago yesterday we were tapping trees.

    On site, first-come-first-served. Cash preferred, checks welcome. I don't have a square thingy for cards. There's only one slot I'm holding for someone Saturday, 'cause they earned it.

    I was talking the party in general, but if I'm about, I ain't shy about jumping in.

    Smithy, this is very awesome. I only have 1 possible scheduling conflict with RDV, if it works, I'll be there and sign up as soon as I arrive.

    Hello all,
    I live over in Bakersville, NC.

    Here is a pavement ride of roads I am familiar with. It is 170 miles of curves and should take 5-6 hours.
