I drove 100 miles for sappin parts before 10 AM, then dragged and hung 1500 feet of lines in my sugarbush...The hard part is unrolling 3/4" water line in 400 foot rolls...While walking backwards...Up to your knees in corn-snow...Did I mention the backwards part while unrolling 400 foot rolls of 3/4 inch black plastic waterline up to your knees in corn-snow?...Just checking...I am maybe half done...Need one more good day and I should be tapped out...My roll of ceramic blanket should be here tomorrow (I hope)...Test-boil Tuesday AM with water (and a cup of bleach)...Boil hard for 2 hours and then let cool down...Rinse pans, and maybe boil enough to sweeten the pans by Tusday midnight...

A man has to have a dream...

We used to store our stuff on wooden reels during the long "off" season. My guess is that you already have something like that in mind.
Gotta keep the dang mice and squirrels away from it.

Wire suspention. Wire suspended bars for the spools, bags, & big stuff. Steel barrels and lids for the small stuff. And, wieghty concrete blocks to keep the varmits out. Card-board to keep the crap off. Tilted seats and boxes to foil cat prints on my seat.
So Help me, There's just no end to outwitting real and imagined advissaries.

I can almost see the steam powered saw mill across the road from my one room school. Used to go over everyday and check the syrup with a lickity stick.
