Well its been a great year, so far weve surpassed last year with 35 gallons so far ,compared to 28 for last.Its been really busy this week ,we have gone through a ton of firewood ,actually I was getting a little nervous about running out of wood .Then we got a huge blessing ,my friend Jiem shows up with his son Ira and a trailer load of huge 2 yr old pine logs and his dump truck full as well,Thanks alot Jiem,then he breaks out the chainsaw and starts cutting as Im boiling what a huge help.We had an awesome turnout for the open house on Saturday and even more people showed up on Sunday,it was great overall.We got low on wood because I got a little over ambitious with my drill and tapped another 40 plus trees on 1 of the slow days and added it into the mainline.Next time Ill have to plan a little better,none the less we are having a blast ,Ive got a college Bio class tomorrow on a tour and maybe a couple of preschool classes as well.So heres what I have been doing at Lakeview Maple ,hope everyone is having a great season and God Bless ,Allen
