    Greetings, and Energy to all! I know this is a Monthly Project Thread.....buuuuut I thought it'd be nice to have something a little more short term to go along with it! I could've missed it somewhere in the forum, but let's face it....this site is huge! Things are and will be missed. Back to where this was going. I was thinking of weekly challenges/projects.

    Challenge #1- Since the weather is supposed to warm up considerably in a lot of parts of the nation, it sounds like a decent opportunity to snatch a quick "Faux Spring" batch of SYRUP!!! All natural means if possible, but if not, we are the kings and queens of, "making lemonade"....so creativity is a bonus! Let's see some pictures, let's not kill the trees either!!

    -Good Luck

    I'm carving a tap this evening (as I sheeple it up watching basketball) Hopefully I can get it right. I'll post pics. Plus the sap thing WILL be hit or miss on the warm up, but the scientific chances are more in favor during a freak warm up for sap to flow. My fingers are crossed!

    Well I got bored before the basketball games and decided to start on the "drip side", what I figure will be the more difficult side....

    well waste not, all those shavings will go in the tinder box...but I think my tap should work well....Not a master woodsmen so I know the craftsmanship ain't pro...but I'm more than happy with it. Now let's wait for the warm up!!
