I put on 296 clear disposable spiles in the home woods which took about 3 hrs. I used the tubing tool to put them on.  If anyone else is going to do this you better have a pliers or vise grip.  The tools are needed to pull the drops off the tee for the Flexible blue line (lite blue line is easy to remove). The north draw along the road is all completed.  There was a few holes in the lines but overall everything is in great shape.  I was surprised that there was 3-4 inches of snow with deeper drifts on the west side of the draw.   Based on doing 100 drops per hour we have about 7 hrs left to finish the home woods and probably 5 hours in the harmon woods. Over the next month we also need to make about 2-300 more drops which are needed to redo the SE corner of the Harmon Woods.
On Friday I reviewed the income/expense files with our tax accountant.  We were the first business using google docs and he is okay with all of the entries and just filing for the Weiss Woods Syrup business. Once you get our K1's then the plan is for everyone to receive 50% of the total K1 in a distribution.
