Still about the same on vacuum and gravity. added about 200 more bags for a total of around 500 with a couple hundred on gravity and vacuum. I have teamed up with a local buddy. Working together we figured we could get more syrup than alone. He is my age and retired so he will be able to fill in and collect when I am not there.
Hopefully the snow is down enough i can rerun my old ATV trails I made in December as I could see their faint outlines last week-end before the melt. We are tapping together this week-end.
Otherwise collecting bags will not go well until we can get through.
Can only do what the snow allows us.
