winner, winner, maple syrup dinner!!!

Many thanks to Wendy and her husband, Deus Ex Machina, once the sap starts running my family and I will be making syrup!  I won a starter kit from TapMyTrees in a giveaway on Mooseboots.  Woo, hoo!  You'll see me in action once the sap starts running ;)

For anyone who may not have been to their blogs, they are both extremely knowledgeable on self-reliance and survival skills in the rural field.  I have followed Wendy for years (and learned sooo much.)  I've read a lot on Mooseboots and decided to follow so I wouldn't miss anything there.  I'd like to thank them publicly here and encourage everyone to check out their sites.

Also: I've been checking out the TapMyTrees site, and found a wealth of information there.  A novice (like me) can feel confident following the clear instructions.

You know, I've been craving maple lately......   :)

Thank you, and congratulations! I was really excited when we pulled your name ; ). Enjoy your sugaring experience! We just put the rest of our taps in this weekend, and we decided we needed more, and so we contacted Joe at to buy some more ; ). Life is good!
