Tapping this year was more challenging than usual The deep soft snow for the first two days was very challenging and then lots of buried lines needed to be dug out. On one line a large tree had blown over before the snow came and almost 200 yards of pipeline (180 meters) was on the ground and had to be restrung. The leaks we have missed will show up with the first run of sap
The weather may finally warm up on Thursday, March 14 and Friday, March 15 and we can finally open the camp. The Kettle Boys and Shanty Men also hope to open on Saturday and Sunday 22nd and 23rd but once again this depends on the weather.There will be an update in this blog each day on our progress.
