Nah, I'm just gonna go get some of that 45% maple syrup and 55% cane syrup stuff from my local Cracker Barrel.

BTW, I wonder what the average maple syrup consumption is for Canadians.

I'm not knocking it, but I'm shocked that's a thing...250 miles to get a sh!t load of syrup.
If I use one racist Aunt Jemima bottle a year that's a lot

With 3 feet of snow predicted this weekend for Boulder, CO I'll probably be doing a lot of snowblowing/shoveling

LOL. That's why I'm wondering what the average consumption rate is up there in Canada. Hey maybe that Aunt Jemima will be worth something in the future when they're all gone.

LOL You do you TiMSport . I'm not sure what the per capita consumption is but here's a story that will make you shake your head. https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j...fhNTOnrJHcFNbN

See, that's your problem... using that Aunt Jemima stuff. I wouldn't be able to get through a bottle of that in a year either.

I'm struggling to figure out how you're going to stretch that out for the whole weekend.

I only have 18% heart function. Taking out the screw gun and finding the correct bit will likely knock me out for 45 minutes. You have no idea how frustrating it is for someone who used to do 16 tire swaps on a race weekend to not even be able to pump up a jack *once* any more without an hour's rest laying down.....

Well that certainly is one way to do it. I'm sorry to hear about your condition. I can't imagine the frustration you feel. I used to race back in the day too although I was drag racing , so not near the number of tire changes. I still work a very physically demanding job and I don't know what I would do if I lost my ability to work every day.

Sorry to hear that.
I used to race BMX bicycles, and I bought my wife an elliptical this year. I can not make it to 3 minutes with no resistance. It is super frustrating to go from the epitomy of health to just a piece of POOP! Getting old sucks

Yup 5 L does me. I'm the only one that uses it and I do try to ration myself a little. I have had to buy some from the grocery store on occasion to get me through til March though. I just hate paying $22 a litre from the store when it's $14 a litre straight from the producer's sugar camp. I'd rather give them all the profit instead of paying all the middlemen and retail markup. Plus it's fun day out in the woods and the smell of boiling sap has got to be one of my favourite aromas.

Headed out to spend a few days in a cabin in the Blue Ridge mountains since the normal overseas ventures are still on hold. Time for some spirited driving on Blood Mountain and the Suches Loop.



SilverSlug Per your request regarding Eibach. I'll try to grab a couple on flat pavement later.
